It is no doubt that Inter will be keeping their eyes on the Scudetto race against the exciting Sassuolo side. Antoni Conte’s men could go eleven points clear at the top of the table with a win. The match comes as one of the postponed fixtures just before the international break.
Inter’s clash with their opponents came on hold on short notice after four players from the hosts camp tested positive for coronavirus. Captain Samir Handanovic with defenders D’Ambrosio and Stefan de Vrij with Matias Vecino all testing positive in the build-up game.
The match came to a halt after several voiced complaints, forcing the health authorities to postpone the match. With subsidies reported in the camp, Diego Conte’s men can turn their focus on clinching ten consecutive league matches for the first since their dominant days in 2007.
Currently operating on an unbeaten record since January, Nerazzurri is currently eight points clear of second-placed AC Milan, especially with the Rossoneri picking up a draw.
