Inter entertain Sassuolo in Serie A as the Nerazzurri look to shake off the disappointment from their midweek Champions League last 16 first leg defeat to Liverpool.

Simone Inzaghi's side were wasteful in front of goal as they were stung by two late goals from the English side, leaving Inter with a mountain to climb in the return leg at Anfield.

A talented Sassuolo outfit will provide a stiff test for the Nerazzurri after their impressive 2-2 draw with Champions League-chasing Roma at the MAPEI Stadium last weekend.

Inter team news

The Nerazzurri will continue to be without the services of January arrival Robin Gosens through a hamstring problem, meaning Ivan Perisic is likely to retain his place in the side.

Joaquin Correa, meanwhile, is inching closer to a return after he sustained a muscle problem in the Coppa Italia clash with Empoli prior to Christmas.


Sassuolo team news

Sassuolo will hope to welcome Filip Djuricic back from a lengthy hamstring injury which has sidelined him since October.

Meanwhile, Pedro Obiang's return date is unknown after he was diagnosed with a heart problem, with his last appearance coming way back at the end of last season.


Inter vs Sassuolo head-to-head record

In a fixture which has typically produced goals, Inter are unbeaten in their previous six clashes with Sassuolo.

The Nerazzurri were victorious in the reverse fixture at the MAPEI Stadium back in October, fighting back from a 1-0 deficit after Domenico Berardi's spot-kick to claim all three points through goals from Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez.


Inter vs Sassuolo score prediction

Inter's title hopes have suffered a couple of serious blows in recent weeks, following up their disappointing Derby della Madonnina defeat with a 1-1 draw at fellow title chasers Napoli.

Milan have subsequently leapfrogged their city rivals at the top of Serie A - albeit having played a game more - but it represents quite the collapse from a position of strength for Inzaghi's men.

However, Inter have largely taken care of business against sides in the lower reaches of Serie A and, despite the result, there was much to be encouraged by in their midweek display against Liverpool.

Prediction: Inter 2-0 Sassuolo
