Conte vows to respect Sassuolo
Antonio Conte expects Sassuolo to provide a stern test for his title-chasing Inter Milan when they square off on Wednesday.
Inter can take another huge step towards winning a first Serie A title since 2010 by collecting all three points at home to Sassuolo.
Conte's men finished one point shy of champions Juventus last season and they look well on track to go one better this time around.
They head into Wednesday's encounter at the San Siro sitting top of the tree and eight points clear of second-placed AC Milan with a game in hand.
Sassuolo, who are ninth, certainly aren't push-overs and they are unbeaten in six visits to Inter, winning four times during that run.
Conte is bracing for another tough evening and admits his side must be at the top of their game to pick up the maximum points.
"We'll be coming up against a team that has its own identity and very precise characteristics," Conte said.
"They've been working under Roberto De Zerbi for a while now, and he's an excellent coach. Therefore, we need to be very attentive, show respect but also try to play our game and achieve the maximum once again tomorrow."
Despite their recent struggles at home against I Neroverdi, Inter did run out comfortable 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture in November.
Inter can be backed at 1.28 to come out on top against Sassuolo, who are priced at 9.50, while the draw is available at 5.75.
