Inter Put Hands On Serie A Title After Beating Sassuolo With ‘Realism’, Italian Media Argue

Inter are virtually certain to win the Serie A title after a pragmatic 2-1 win against Sassuolo, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition said the Nerazzurri had their hands on the Scudetto after going 11 points clear of AC Milan in second.

Inter confirmed they are team of real value last night despite Sassuolo dominating possession, with the Neroverdi struggling to create any clear chances.

In fact, the report pointed out that Antonio Conte’s side wasted two glorious chances to score a third goal to wrap up the game through Alexis Sanchez and Achraf Hakimi.

Inter completed almost 500 passes fewer than Roberto De Zerbi’s side at San Siro (358 compared to 848), but their realism prevailed over Sassuolo’s stylish approach.

The Milan-based paper said Conte’s side would win ‘the Scudetto of substance’ and urged Inter supporters not to view that as a criticism.

Pragmatism is ‘a legitimate choice’ and not a bad thing, the report argued, with Conte having built a perfect machine to win in Serie A.

Italy’s top flight is traditionally a league won by those who prioritise the result above all else, Gazzetta recalled, with very few exceptions.

Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez scored in either half last night to secure three precious points for Inter.
