Having enjoyed an impressive victory over AC Milan in the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night, Inter will be looking for a no-nonsense victory at home against Sassuolo on Serie A Matchday 35.
The order of the day will be to rest key players and avoid any costly injuries in a key part of the season. The good news for Simone Inzaghi is that his side comes up against a Sassuolo team who have struggled for most of the season and have nothing to play for at this stage.
Whilst you can never confidently predict anything in Serie A, it is the sort of game Inter would have asked for if given the chance between the two Champions League semi-final ties.
Inter vs Sassuolo: Predicted line-ups
Simone Inzaghi is expected to make a host of changes to his team as he tries to keep the key stars fresh to finish the job against AC Milan next week. Danilo D’Ambrosio and Robin Gosens will be back in the squad after recovering from injuries. The coach may even swap Andre Onana for Samir Handanovic in goal.
Former Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti is going to be back for Sassuolo after suspension, whilst Nadir Zortea will also return from suspension. Mert Muldur will need to be evaluated in the lead-up to the game.
Inter predicted XI vs Sassuolo (3-5-2): Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Mkhitaryan, Bellanova; Lukaku, Correa.
Sassuolo predicted XI vs Inter (4-3-3): Consigli; Toljan, Erlic, Ferrari, Rogerio; Frattesi, Lopez, Henrique; Berardi, Pinamonti, Lauriente.
