Predictions on line-ups for both Inter and Sassuolo have been made as we approach this Sundays lunch fixture. Inter take on Sassuolo at home in the 12.30 CET kick-off to become ‘winter champions’ which will be anything but easy given the positive start to the season the Neroverdi have had as they have the same points as AC Milan and are only 5 points behind Roma.

Inter will probably field a 4-4-2 formation where Jovetic takes Ljajic’ place who will start on the bench. In midfield Brozovic is the favorite to start over Guarin as is Telles to start over Nagatomo. Perisic will play to the left of midfield whilst Biabiany could start on the other side.

Sassuolo will most likely field a 4-3-3 where Di Francesco will field attacking trio Berardi, Defrel and Sansone whilst playing former Inter player Duncan in midfield together with Missiroli and Magnanelli. In central defence Acerbi and Cannavaro will plat whilst Vrsaljko and Peluso play as full-back’s.

Probable line-ups INTER (4-4-2): 1 Handanovic; 33 D’Ambrosio, 25 Miranda, 24 Murillo, 12 Telles; 11 Biabiany, 77 Brozovic, 17 Medel, 44 Perisic; 9 Icardi (C), 10 Jovetic. Coach: Roberto Mancini.

SASSUOLO (4-3-3): 47 Consigli; 11 Vrsaljko, 28 Cannavaro, 15 Acerbi, 13 Peluso; 7 Missiroli, 4 Magnanelli (C), 32 Duncan; 25 Berardi, 92 Defrel, 17 Sansone. Coach: Eusebio Di Francesco.
