Lazio vs Sassuolo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Lazio has a game in hand and is currently in possession of the last European spot. That position might allow them to enter the Europa, but they are targeting the Champions League. The last place in the league table, that affords entry into the competition is being held by AC Milan. The Milan side has a four-point lead over Lazio but has played an extra game.
If Lazio can take advantage of their home game against a struggling Sassuolo, they can gain significant ground in their race towards Europe’s most important footballing tradition. Sassuolo is winless in their last five league ties, and with almost all teams below them who are fighting relegation, in better form, the team is in grave danger.

Lazio vs Sassuolo Prediction
Lazio is in possession of a Europa League spot as of now, has a game in hand, and is fighting to represent Italy in the Champions League. A win in this match will see them reduce their point-gap to AC Milan to just one. On the other hand, Sassuolo is fighting relegation and is winless in their last eight fixtures, and in 13 of their last 14. On the road, they are winless in their last seven attempts.
H2h matches also show clear domination by Lazio. They registered seven of the last nine wins and won four of the last five home h2h ties. Considering the crucial nature of the tie for Lazio, and the visitors’ bad form, expect the home team to find the back of the net in the first half itself.
Going on, Lazio has managed two or more goals in eight of the last eleven h2h games, and in four of the last five at this stadium. Moreover, the team scored seven goals in their last two home fixtures, whereas Sassuolo conceded two or more in two of the last three on the road. Expect the hosts to open the scoring early, as well as, score at least twice.
