So they will be hoping to continue with their rhythm in this crucial phase. While Sassuolo are going through a rough patch recently and will have to upset Inter if they wish to move to the top half of the table.
The visitors have fared at the San Siro, as they thrashed Milan 5-2 in January. However, against Inter they have won only once in their last eight encounters in Serie A. Dzeko scored a brace in the reverse fixture to help Inter win 2-1. The Bosnian striker is in-form for this game as well, but he might start on the bench. Sassuolo have struggled away from the home soil and have conceded at least twice in their last four away games.
