Inter Milan vs Sassuolo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 24 June 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Antonio Conte’s men have been the best team in the league barring Juventus and Lazio, and they seem determined to secure one of the Champions League spots. The fact that they have a buffer of points over the teams that are placed below them gives them some breathing space to take risks.
This affords them the luxury to go after the top-two spots. Meanwhile, Roberto De Zerbi’s men are placed in the mid-table, and have made a disastrous start to their campaign after the Covid-19 break.
In addition, Conte’s men have been performing well at home lately, whereas their counterparts have been struggling on the road for some time. Likely, expect an Inter win this Wednesday.

Inter Milan vs Sassuolo: Prediction
Conte’s men recorded a 2-1 win at home the last match-day, against Sampdoria. Right away in the 10th minute itself did Conte’s men find the back of the net through Romelu Lukaku, and later they doubled the lead with a Lautaro Martinez strike.
In the meantime, Zerbi’s men lost 4-1 on the road the past match-day, against Atalanta. The hosts were in such a hurry for the win, that they raced to a 3-0 lead even before the 40th minute, and to pile even more, one of those was an away goal.
As things stand, Conte’s men are easily the favorites to post the three points. They are comfortably placed in the podium spots, and are going after the duo of Juventus and Lazio. On the other hand, Zerbi’s men are placed in the mid-table, and are struggling to get out of the zone.
Moreover, Conte’s men were unbeaten in 21 of their prior 24 appearances at home, while their opposite number remained winless in 18 of their preceding 22 fixtures on the road. Finally, Conte’s men had also won the reverse fixture away from home after scoring four goals.
Considering these stats, it’s concluded that Inter are on course to deliver a win this Wednesday.
