Inter will be desperate to get out of their bad run of form when they take on Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium in Serie A Matchday 9. The Nerazzurri suffered their fourth league defeat of the season against AS Roma in Matchday 8.
They looked disjointed once again in that game and the suggestions that Simone Inzaghi’s job may be at risk are continuing to grow. Inter did take the lead against Roma but they then seemed to lose their way and now they are left with just 12 points from the first eight games.
Sassuolo v Inter: Predicted line-ups
There is a chance that Inter will be boosted against Sassuolo by the return of Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku. He was rumoured to be returning against Roma but that game proved too soon, along with the Barcelona clash.
Marcelo Brozovic is still going to be out injured and Kristjan Asllani will likely continue his time in that role. He put in a solid display against Roma despite the scoreline.
Sassuolo should have Domenico Berardi back after a spell on the sidelines with a thigh injury.
Sassuolo predicted XI v Inter (4-3-3): Consigli; Toljan, Erlic, Ferrari, Rogerio; Frattesi, Lopez, Thorstvedt; Berardi, Pinamonti, Lauriente.
Inter predicted XI v Sassuolo (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Mkhitaryan, Asllani, Barella, Dimarco; Lukaku, Lautaro.
