Inter Milan wingback Denzel Dumfries was reportedly the best performer for the club in the 1-2 defeat at the hands of Sassuolo, while Lautaro Martinez flopped.
The Dutchman gave the Nerazzurri the lead at the end of the first half. However, Domenico Berardi guided the Emilians’ uprise in the second period.
The Neroverdi icon provided the assist for Nedim Bajrami on the equalizer before scoring a splendid winner himself.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews) identified Dumfries as the best performer for the Beneamata. He received a rating of 6.5/10.
On the other hand, the source describes club captain Lautaro Martinez as the poorest on the pitch, giving him a grade of 5/10. The pink newspaper says Sassuolo players often anticipated the Argentine’s moves.
Yann Sommer received the same note. The Swiss goalkeeper was the main culprit in Sassuolo’s equalizer. Bajrami’s shot beat him at his near post. Nicolo Barella also received 5/10.

The most popular grade was 5.5/10, with a host of players receiving his underwhelming rating. This includes Matteo Darmian, Alessandro Bastoni, Stefan de Vrij, Hakan Calhanoglu, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Federico Dimarco, Marcus Thuram and Alexis Sanchez.
This was Inter’s first defeat of the season in all competitions. They had enjoyed a perfect start to the campaign, winning the first five rounds in Serie A.
So after conceding their maiden loss, they’ll be looking to bounce back with a win in Salerno on Saturday.
