Competition: Serie A

Market: Inter Milan to win both halves

Odds: 33/20 @ 888sport

Desperate to try and find an immediate boost at the San Siro this weekend, defending champions Inter Milan will host Sassuolo on Sunday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Inter Milan might have put in a largely rugged display in midweek, the Nerazzurri would have been disappointed to have suffered a 2-0 loss against Premier League giants Liverpool. Now in an uphill battle to extend on their Champions League status this year, Head Coach Simone Inzaghi will be calling for his side to find an immediate boost here. However, while the defending Serie A champions might have managed to win just one of their last four matchups across all formats, they should be smelling a golden chance at the San Siro this weekend. Looking to regain their spot at the top of the table, the former Lazio boss should be boosted by a rampant record against Sunday’s guests. Including a 2-1 win earlier in the season, they’re unbeaten in their last six meetings against Sassuolo.

As for the visitors, hit with last-gasp heartbreak on home soil last weekend and having to settle for a 2-2 draw against Roma, Sassuolo do have the feel of a side seeking some stability in 2022. Eventually crashing out of the Coppa Italia away at Italian giants Juventus earlier in the month thanks to a 2-1 loss, Head Coach Alessio Dionisi finds his side in the midst of a four-match winless run. With their recent struggles highlighted by a 4-0 drumming against relegation scrappers Sampdoria, there is no doubt that the Neroverdi will know that they face a stern test on the road here. Falling out the top-half of the table and holding a winless record against the defending champions that stems back to 2018, we’re backing what should be a routine home victory for Inter Milan this weekend.

Bet: Inter Milan to win both halves against Sassuolo 33/20 for Sunday’s Serie A matchup @ 888sport
