Aiming to extend their perfect start to the Serie A season, Inter Milan host Sassuolo at San Siro on Wednesday. While Inter have won five from five to storm clear at the top of the table, their visitors are far more inconsistent – but the Emilian side upset the odds by beating Juventus last time out.
After continuing their flawless run to a fifth league match by beating Empoli at the weekend, early Serie A leaders Inter will now try to win six on the spin at the start of the season for just a third time in club history.
Only Antonio Conte (2019) and legendary European Cup-winning coach Helenio Herrera (1966) have achieved such a feat as boss of the Nerazzurri, but Simone Inzaghi can join them this week, by steering his side to success against Sassuolo.
A stunning strike from Federico Dimarco topped Inter’s tally up to 15 points from a possible 15 on Sunday, when the wing-back’s 51st-minute goal saw off last-placed Empoli at Stadio Castellani.
Having already beaten Monza, Cagliari, Fiorentina and arch-rivals Milan – the latter pair by four-goal margins – Inzaghi’s men are peerless in Italy right now, though they could only take one point from last week’s Champions League opener away to Real Sociedad.
There is, of course, a long way to go before any silverware is handed out this season, but having confirmed his reputation as a cup specialist since moving to San Siro, Inzaghi surely has half an eye on the main prize.
Therefore, Inter cannot afford to slip up at home to teams in mid-table, and having won five of their last six league matches against Sassuolo in the league, only another win will do on Wednesday.
Despite their negative recent record against Inter, over a longer period Sassuolo actually possess a creditable set of results versus the Nerazzurri in Milan. From 10 Serie A fixtures played between the clubs at San Siro, there have been four wins for each side, although the Emilian team were beaten 4-2 there last season.
That scoreline has twice cropped up again for Alessio Dionisi’s men over the past few days, as after capitulating during the second half of a 4-2 defeat to promoted Frosinone, six more goals were shared in Sassuolo’s spectacular home game against Juventus at the weekend.
