Lazio vs Sassuolo Match Preview
Lazio remain right in contention for a place in next season’s Champions League and can boost their prospects with victory against Sassuolo.
The Biancocelesti entered the weekend sixth in the Serie A table, four points behind AC Milan who occupied the all-important fourth position, but crucially with a game in hand on all the teams around them, which is at home to struggling Udinese a week on Wednesday.
Simone Inzaghi’s side suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat away to SPAL in midweek, but did not lose much ground and they will fancy their chances of restoring full confidence here before next Saturday’s critical test away to Milan – who are also their Coppa Italia semi-final opponents.
Sassuolo, in their sixth consecutive top-flight campaign, will surely make it seven straight Serie A seasons because they are safely in mid-table but after a promising start, they have won only two of their last 15 games, most recently at home to all-but-relegated Chievo.
The Neroverdi have been in particularly poor form on their travels, as the stats above outline, but they have never failed to score on their five previous visits to Lazio and we are backing that to continue, even in the event of another home victory.
