Icardi out for Sassuolo

Inter will be without Mauro Icardi for Saturday’s clash with Sassuolo, after he suffered a thigh injury.

The match is all-but meaningless for the Nerazzurri, who are already guaranteed fourth-place, but it could have knock-on effects for their city rivals, Milan.

If Sassuolo win the match, they will secure sixth-place in Serie A, regardless of what the Rossoneri do against Roma.

That would mean that if Milan don’t beat Juventus in the Coppa Italia final, the Neroverdi would enter the Europa League at their expense.

Sassuolo have been handed a boost in that endeavour, with the news that Inter’s top-scorer will miss the match.

Icardi has suffered a first-degree injury to the Semitendinosus muscle in his right thigh, meaning he will sit the match out.

The Argentinian striker has scored 16 times in Serie A this season, as well as providing four assists.
