Sassuolo – Inter

Sassuolo hosts Inter in a match from the first round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s have a look at this game, which is going to be played on Sunday night in the city of Sassuolo.

Last season Sassuolo finished 11th in the Serie A and they had a comfortable campaign, without too much worries that they could get relegated. Finishing around the middle of the table is great achievement for this club and they would like to do it again, there’s no doubt about this. But their first challenge for the new season won’t be easy, because Inter are more motivated than ever to do well.

Inter’s first game for the new season comes after the new deal, signed by the team’s manager Luciano Spalletti. For the former Roma coach this is going to be a second season at the Stadio San Siro. In his first he managed to qualify the team for the Champions League after a long absence, which was a great achievement. Now the goals are even bigger.

During the summer transfer market Inter made some important deals in order to strenghten the team. The Nerrazuri acquired players like Radja Nainggolan, Lautaro Martinez, Federico Dimarco and Sime Vrsaljko, which speaks a lot about their ambition. The club also signed the talented winger Keita Balde, who was loaned by Monaco until the end of the season.

But maybe the most important thing is that Inter managed to keep important players like the captain Mauro Icardi and the Croatian international Ivan Perisic. Both players were wanted by other clubs, but so far they are remaining at the Stadio San Siro.

This is our look at the Serie A clash between Sassuolo and Inter on Sunday night. We believe that Inter are favourites here to take the win, but Sassuolo are a strong team, so be careful.
