Substitute Edin Džeko scored less than a minute after coming on the field to trigger Inter’s fightback at Sassuolo.
Džeko, who signed from Roma in the offseason, is the first Inter player to score at least six goals in the first seven matches of the season since Ronaldo in 1997-98.
Inter was looking to preserve its unbeaten start to the season but went behind in the 22nd minute when Domenico Berardi converted a penalty after Milan Škriniar had tripped Sassuolo midfielder Jérémie Boga.
Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanović kept his side in the game before the equalizer in the 58th, when Džeko’s first touch was to head in Ivan Perišić’s cross.
The visitors got a penalty of their own when Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli brought down Džeko and Lautaro Martínez drove the spot kick into the bottom right corner 12 minutes from time to win the match for Inter.
Džeko had the ball in the net again, but it was ruled out for offside.
