Inter have scored 12 goals in their last four league matches, after failing to score in each of their three games prior to this.

Inter lost their last home league match (vs Juventus), while they haven’t lost consecutive games in San Siro since May 2017 – in that occasion the second defeat arrived against Sassuolo.

Inter have gained 69 points in a single league season for the first time since 2010/11.

Sassuolo have conceded 13 goals from outside the box, more than any other team in Serie A this term.

Mauro Icardi (99 goals) could become the eighth player to score 100 goals in Serie A for Inter.
