Lazio vs Sassuolo – Serie A: Lazio is one of the best teams in Serie A and they have an interesting roster.
And they finished on a good position last season so they are playing in the Europa League now, a competition where they have started off really well, having 6 points after winning the 2 matches played so far.
The last of them was last Thursday against Zulte-Waregem and they won 2-0 on a match where they rotated half of their starters.
Lazio sits in 4th place in the league, playing good football and only losing 1 match so far. I should highlight their great win at home over 4-1 over AC Milan.
On their last home match, they lost 1-4 to Napoli but on the last round they got those points back in Verona, winning 3-0.
Sassuolo is a team that doesn’t impress much. They have the objective of avoiding relegation in this Serie A and I believe they will be able to do it, but that’s because there are some very weak teams on the league this year.
This Sassuolo, whenever they face stronger teams, will struggle and I don’t think they will be able to finish within the top 10 for example.
2 rounds ago they won 1-0 away at Cagliari but on the last round, playing at home, they lost 0-1 with Bologna, which is definitely a negative result.
Away from home, they have a more defensive posture, playing with deeper lines and that should be the scenario against Lazio.
Lazio vs Sassuolo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Lazio are favourites here and I don’t believe they will have too much troubles beating this Sassuolo.
The team from Rome has reacted well to their 1-4 loss at home against Napoli, which was a heavy loss after having beaten AC Milan by the same score line.
They got the 3 points away from home and they’ve won 2-0 midweek on the Europa League, in a match where they rested some of their usual starters.
Lazio is playing well and this is clearly a match for them to win, as a way to overshadow their last loss, because at home they had already drawn 0-0 with Spal too, where the ball simply didn’t want to go in. Lazio to win is my pick here.
