Inter Milan 18:30 Sassuolo
 
Inter Milan are in precarious form, will have the fulcrum of home ground Giuseppe Meazza welcoming Sassuolo uncomfortable in this round 27. Whether Sassuolo has climbed to the top of the BXH to successfully claim the debt lost the first leg.

Inter had played Coppa Italia before resuming Serie A last week, but Antonio Conte's side were eliminated in the semi-finals with the last champion, Napoli, after a three-month hiatus. The Nerazzurri had goals from Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez to give them a narrow 2-1 win over Sampdoria on Sunday night. The result helped Conte's team finish 3rd with 57 points, although they were empty handed against two direct competitors Lazio and Juventus before the tournament was stopped. However, I Nerazzuri only tasted defeat once in the last 24 matches in Serie A before and they are trying to chase the best ending since 2011. Conte's team are 5 points behind Lazio and 6 points ahead of Atalanta at this stage of the campaign, Conte is facing an injury crisis in midfield with Matias Vecino, Stefano Sensi and Marcelo Brozovic will both miss midweek. Experienced defender Diego Godin is in dispute for a prime starting position after the end of a sustained injury. Manchester United lender Alexis Sanchez is also back and fighting to start in the front line.

Coronavirus's postponement of the tournament could not have come at a worse time for Sassuolo, who started the series of impressive results in Serie A. Roberto De Zerbi's side have won 4 victories from 6 rounds before the land The country was postponed, but they faced their first tough match against Atalanta with a score of 1-4 full of face salt. Failure meant that Sassuolo dropped one rank to 12th on the chart but their score was 32 points which meant they were 7 points away from the relegation zone. Neroverdi finished 11th with over 43 points in the last 2 seasons, so any improvement on that would constitute a successful campaign for this Sassuolo team. Inter enjoyed a dramatic 4-3 victory in the first leg at the end of October, with both Martinez and Lukaku scoring 2 goals in that match. This match Sassuolo will have no right defender Jeremy Toljan, who were forced to retire in the first half during the defeat against Atalanta, the German defender will join alongside defenders Filippo Romagna and Marlon Santos on the injury list. Santos' absence leaves a place for Gian Marco Ferrari to team up with Federico Peluso in the heart of De Zerbi's defense.
