Tip Sassuolo - Inter Milano
Sassuolo are one of the three unbeaten sides in the Serie A after eight rounds, and after finishing eighth last season, they will hope to do better this time. In their Match Day 9 fixture, Sassuolo hosts Inter Milan and look to extend their unbeaten start. The hosts have so far managed 18 points and are second in the standings while Inter have 15 points, placed fifth. Unlike Inter, Sassuolo did not have a midweek assignment and will be very fresh heading to this clash. In their last match, they thumped Hellas Verona 2-0, registering their third straight clean sheet, and they now have a run of five wins in their eight matches this season. Furthermore, they have scored two goals or more in six of their eight matches this season and failed to score completely in just one game this season – the 0-0 draw with Udinese. They will however need to improve at home, having managed just one win and three draws in the four home matches they have played so far. On this they will heavily rely on Francesco Caputo’s home form. The striker has three goals in the last three home matches in the league and his form will also be key to Sassuolo, who haven’t beaten Inter in the last three meetings. The hosts have no win in this fixture in the last three meetings but have won four wins in the last seven matches against the Milan side.
Inter, on the other hand, hit another low in their last match ahead of this – a home loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League, which left them bottom of the group. The 2-0 loss on Wednesday ensured they have no clean sheet in the last five matches. They have now conceded two or more goals in four of their last five matches and in eight of the 12 they have played this season. A poor start to the season has left Inter with just two wins in their last 10 matches while they have two clean sheets only in the 12 matches they have played so far in the season. Not much fault can be attached to the team’s attack even as they endure a tough start; Inter have scored in 10 of their 12 matches in the current campaign. They have scored in all league matches and are unbeaten in their last four Serie A matches though they don’t have a clean sheet in the last three. Inter head to this clash winless in their last three away matches and have managed just one win in seven meetings with Sassuolo. The recent meetings between these two sides have yielded a lot of goals – the two matches played last season produced 13 goals. These two sides are the leading scorers in Serie A, with 20 goals each, and we expect another high scoring game here.

Conclusion Sassuolo - Inter Milano
Inter Milan are not having a very good start to the season and after their defeat at home by Real Madrid, they will be low in morale going to this game. They have been porous in defence and though the attack has been doing well, the imbalance has cost them and going to this clash they have just two wins in the last 10 matches. Sassuolo on the other hand, have done well in their matches this season, and in the last three matches, they have added one aspect to their game – good defending. After conceding in their opening five matches, they have completely shut down opponents in the last three matches and will be looking to take that form to this game. They are fresher, having had a free midweek and in their form, we are backing them for a win.
