Italian Journalist Paolo Assogna: “Nothing Worked For Inter Against Sassuolo”

Italian journalist Paolo Assogna feels that Inter had a match to forget in their 2-0 Serie A loss to Sassuolo, and that the result and performance leaves their status as Scudetto favourites in doubt.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Assogna was highly critical of the Nerazzurri’s display to drop three points in what could end up being a turning point in the Serie A title race.

The Nerazzurri were favourites on paper against the Neroverdi given the two sides’ places in the table, but in practice the first half did not go according to plan.

Sassuolo were ruthless in exploiting an imprecise display by Inter who were without the suspended Marcelo Brozovic, and the Nerazzurri deserved to trail at halftime having been overrun.

In the second half, Inter started to dominate possession and chances, but lacked a cutting edge to find the back of the net, to ensure that the away team took all three points, the Nerazzurri’s third loss of their Serie A campaign.

“Inter are in troubling form,” he said. “I thought that the defeat against Milan and the draw with Napoli followed by the loss against Liverpool were just a series of coincidences.”

“The defeat against Sassuolo casts this period in a different light,” he continued, “we must reassess things. Nothing worked today. Inter were very disappointing.”

“The strength of the Nerazzurri had always been keeping their concentration levels high even in these kinds of potential pitfall matches,” he added, “against the teams in the bottom half of the table.”

“Today their performance puts their status as favourites in Serie A in doubt,” he added.
