Sassuolo host Inter Milan at Stadio Citta del Tricolore in what should be an exciting Serie A clash at 2pm on Saturday.
Roberto De Zerbi’s side have shocked the Italian top flight by winning five and drawing three of their opening eight games to sit unbeaten in second place on 18 points.
Sassuolo are also Serie A’s top scorers, with their attractive brand of expansive football winning plenty of plaudits. This weekend’s clash with fifth-placed Inter represents a real test of Sassuolo’s title credentials.
Inter have suffered just one defeat in Serie A this season and are particularly strong away from home, having won 15 of their 23 away league matches under Antonio Conte – more than any other team since the start of last season.
However, Conte is in need of a victory, with his side on a run of one win across their last six games in all competitions.

Sassuolo vs Inter Milan previous line-ups:
- Sassuolo (vs Verona): Consigli; Toljan, Chiriches, Ferrari, Rogerio; Locatelli, Lopez; Beradi, Duricic, Boga; Raspadori.
- Inter Milan (vs Real Madrid): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Vidal, Gagliardini, Young; Lukaku, Martinez.
Sassuolo hope Francesco Caputo will be fit to return after missing the 2-0 away win over Verona with a thigh injury, meaning the veteran striker could replace Giacomo Raspadori up front.
Meanwhile, winger Federico Ricci could return following an illness, although wide players Domenico Berardi and Jeremie Boga should both keep their places after scoring against Verona.
Inter Milan are without Aleksandar Kolarov, Marcelo Brozovic and Daniele Padelli due to coronavirus. Conte could shuffle his pack after the 2-0 defeat by Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Player to watch:
Sassuolo: Inter have a team packed full of stars, but the home side have plenty of their own. Conte and his coaching staff will know all about the danger Domenico Berardi poses. The 26-year-old forward has scored in six of his last nine league matches against Inter. Of current Serie A players, only Zlatan Ibrahimovic (eight) has scored more goals against the Nerazzurri in the top-flight. Berardi has not just been performing against Inter either: he is the only player to have scored more than 10 goals and provided over 10 assists in Serie A in 2020. Across Europe that puts him in esteemed company alongside Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller.
