US Sassuolo vs. Inter Milan / Serie A – Inter Milan will go for Scudetto from this difficult hosting against Sassuolo. Namely, even the last three championship duels between these teams ended with the victory of Sassuolo, but they were still only 11th on Serie A table last season, while Inter from Milan came to the fourth place in the last round and thus qualified in the Champions League.
US Sassuolo vs. Inter Milan Begins: 19.08.2018 at 20:30 CET
However, this 11th place from last season was somehow expected for the team of Sassuolo, since they mostly ended up somewhere in the middle of the table from their return among the Italian elite in 2013, while they only two years ago managed to win placement in Europa League. But despite the fact that they managed to survive quite early in the year, the leaders of the club decided to end the cooperation with coach Iachini, while the former strategist of Benevento, 39-year-old De Zerbi, was brought instead.
He immediately started a big reconstruction of the team, especially because they have lost two very important players from the starting lineup, center-back Acerbi and striker Politano, while they also lost ten other players during the summer. That is why the arrivals were numerous, and we have to specially mention young center-backs Marlon and Magnani, midfielder Boatngo, Locatelli, Bourabi, Boga and Djuricic, and strikers di Francesco and Brignola, while we also need to add that only the injured center-back Peluso is out of action for this match.
Probable lineups US Sassuolo: Consigli – Lirola, Ferrari, Lemos, Rogerio – Duncan, Magnanelli, Sensi – Berardi, Boateng, di Francesco
We have already said for the guests from Milan that they only in the last round of Serie A and after the away victory over their direct rivals Lazio managed to reach the fourth place last season and placement in the Champions League, where they have not been since 2012. Of course their appetites grew after that and so the leaders of the club were, along with coach Spaletto, very active during the summer, which only suggests that we should watch a much stronger and better Inter in the upcoming season.
Namely, the “Nerazzurri” have in this transitional period brought seven new players, including defenders Vrsaljko from Madrid, de Vrij from Lazio and Asamoah from Juventus, midfielder Nainggolan from Roma and strikers Politano from Sassuolo, Keita from Lazio and Martinez from Argentinian Racing. On the other hand, defenders Joao Cancelo and Santon, midfielder Rafinha and striker Eder have all left the team, while they for this duel with Sassuolo cannot count on the exhausted and injured Vrsaljko, Nainggolan and Keita.
Probable lineups Inter Milan: Handanovic – D'Ambrosio, Skriniar, de Vrij, Asamoah – Brozović, Vecino – Politano, Martinez, Perišić – Icardi
US Sassuolo vs. Inter Milan PICK
We have already mentioned in our analysis that Inter is entering this season with very big ambitions, so it would not be surprising that they start very aggressively from the first round and win over Sassuolo, especially since they owe it to them from last season, when they mastered them in both championship duels.
