Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Inter will be aiming to bounce back from a shocking 3-1 loss to Udinese when they take on Sassuolo at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore. The Nerazzurri missed a number of clear-cut opportunities to score in the defeat to the Zebrette and, as a result, they dropped to third place in the Serie A standings. Luciano Spalletti’s men aim to stay in the race for Scudetto and we predict they will go all guns blazing at Sassuolo on Matchday 18. Mauro Icardi scored his 17th goal of the season at the weekend and the opposition defenders are likely to have their work cut out for them when facing the Argentina international. The Neroverdi, on the other hand, are eager to build on back-to-back wins over the likes of Crotone and Sampdoria and we believe the hosts will grab something from Saturday’s football match against Inter, who experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the defeat to Udinese.

Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
