Inter Milan are firmly seated in the top three of the current Serie A standings, with a considerable advantage over their closest rivals who are none other than Lazio. But, it does not mean Luciano Spalletti’s team has got a ticket to the European Champions League next season, they still have to fight to win the game after game to ensure a place in the top three of the standings later this season. Entering the 20th Giornata of Serie A, the Nerazzurri will face one of the strong opponents, Sassuolo, where the match will take place on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan.
The squad directed by Luciano Spalletti did appear quite consistent since the beginning of this season, so it’s no wonder they are still firmly ranked 3rd in the standings. The points achieved so far also tend to be satisfying, a total of 19 Giornata that have taken place, Inter Milan managed to collect 39 points, behind Lima from Napoli who are in second place, and winning 7 points over Lazio who are ranked 4th. In the last five parties, Inter Milan packed 4 wins and held back a draw.
Playing at home to Sassuolo, La Beneamata seems to be more favored to win. But, they also have to keep in mind the fact that Sassuolo is not an easy opponent, only this season El Tricolore’s performance was disappointing, where they were in 11th place.
