Sassuolo vs Inter by PatrickBateman
Sassuolo are 15th with 17 points. Since they are eight points above 18th place which leads into Serie B, it could be said that they won`t have problem staying up this season. They are doing ok at home, winning four times while losing three, but recently they have been in bad form. They have only one win in the last twelve competitive matches, against Empoli at home 3:0. They are scoring fair amount of goals, but their loose defense doesn`t bring them much points. In fact, out of their 6 wins in all competitive matches this season, five of them came with a clean sheet, which is a clear indicator that when defense plays good, the whole team plays good, and more importantly, getting points. It has to be said that they will be without number of players, including Biondini, Cannavaro, Duncan, Gazzola, Letschert, Pellegrini and Berardi, who are injured, as well as Peluso who is suspended.
Inter are currently 9th with 24 points. They have been pretty good lately, especially in offense, winning five out of the last eight, while scoring 15 goals in process. What is concerning for them is their terrible away form, with only one draw out of the last eight competitive matches and seven losses. During that period they put up a goal difference 8:18, being all out of sorts and looking like a completely different team. The good news for them is that they are scoring regularly, failing to find a net only three times this season.
Inter are favourites for this one, especially knowing how decimated Sassuolo will be. But I wouldn`t trust them considering their away peformances this season. They have managed to keep only three clean sheets in Serie A this season, and their defense doesn`t look stable at all. Since Inter conceded in all but one away games this season, and mostly more than one goal, attackingly prolific Sassuolo should make their mark here. Also, with Sassuolo conceding regularly, and Inter being favourites here, they should score more than one here. I see both teams scoring here, and since both teams are playing open-styled football, I see result bigger than 1:1. Therefore I will pick both teams to score with more than 2 goals.
