GTBCO FOOD DRINL

May 5, (THEWILL) – Sassuolo produced a gritty performance to down champions Inter Milan 1-0 on Saturday, earning a massive boost to their Serie A survival hopes. The surprise result saw them become only the second team to beat Inter in the league this season.

Despite Inter’s title success, Sassuolo refused to be overawed and took the lead in the first half. Josh Doig mugged Denzel Dumfries before cutting back for Armand Laurienté to fire home the opener. Inter thought they had equalized through Lautaro Martínez before half-time only for VAR to rule it out for offside.

The Nerazzurri struggled to break down their determined opponents after the break. Although they controlled possession, clear-cut chances were at a premium against Sassuolo’s resolute defending. Substitutes failed to spark Inter into life as the visitors remained blunt in attack.
