Inter will take on Sassuolo on Sunday in a Seria A game at the San Siro stadium in Milan. The hosts are currently 3rd in the standings, but 14 points behind leaders Juventus and have to worry only about their place in top 4. They trashed Seria B side Benevento in midweek 6:2 in a cup game and will be looking to extend their 6 game unbeaten record. Sassuolo lost to Napoli 2:0 a few days ago. They are 11th in the standings, 5 points from the 6th place, which ensures European qualification and 12 points away from the relegation zone.

Worth mentioning: Inter lost only to Juventus in their last 8 outings, but are experiencing difficulties in attack, as they managed just 7 goals prior to their cup outing in midweek. Their record at home is perfect in the last 8 games in Seria A, as they last lost to Parma back in September. Sassuolo on the other hand are on a run on 3 straight defeats.
