Inter of Luciano Spalletti are set to face Sassuolo, the club’s true black beast in recent seasons: the Emiliani, in fact, have won 7 of the last 8 direct competitions including 4 in the row.
Looking at the numbers, after destroying the Emiliani in the first 3 games, winning 7-0, 1-0 and another 7-0 in 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 season, Inter have always found great difficulty dealing with Sassuolo.
The following 8 games in Serie A, in fact, only gave Inter one victory on December 18, 2016 in Reggio Emilia thanks to the goal of Candreva. The Nerazzurri have lost the other 7 games, including the last 4. Inter have not been able to dominate Sassuolo, not even a draw. This time, in order to keep up with Juventus and especially Napoli, they must tame this black beast.
