*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

5/1 underdogs Sassuolo have been struggling in the battle for survival and a run of only one win in 15 matches in Serie A has left them languishing in second last spot. Inter Milan are less motivated now that they have landed the Scudetto, however, they have enough class even in second gear to see off their hosts.

Inter Milan have been given a 66.7% chance of picking up three points by the bookies and our top betting tips have also backed the champions to prevail. Inter eased to a 2-0 win over ten-man Torino in their last assignment.

Inter Milan’s only Serie A loss of the season so far came in a shock reverse at home to Sassuolo last September, though they are unlikely to suffer the same fate on Saturday. Inter won three meetings on the spin with Sassuolo before September’s mishap.

Sassuolo vs Inter Milan prediction
Hakan Calhanoglu has hit a late-season purple patch for Inter – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Hakan Çalhanoglu

Turkish playmaker Hakan Çalhanoglu scored both of Inter’s goals in their comfortable 2-0 triumph over Torino last weekend and the talented schemer has notched four goals in his last three appearances overall for the new Italian champions.

Prolific Calhanoglu could make the difference again

30-year-old Çalhanoglu has been a consistent source of match-changing moments for Inter this season and the Turkish international has hit 13 goals and three assists overall in Serie A since August. He has either scored or assisted once every 150.6 minutes in the Italian top tier this term.
