Lazio vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 2 April 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio are placed seventh in the table at the moment, and they are desperately going after a top-six finish, in order to secure qualification to one of the European competitions next season.

However, as of now, they have played an extra game, and they also need a surplus of two points to climb level with the sixth-placed squad.

Meanwhile, Sassuolo are placed ninth in the table, and have 43 points against their name. They do have quite a gap to overcome in order to be in the race for European qualification.

But it needs to be mentioned that they are one of the best teams in the league at the moment. In fact, they have won four of the past five league fixtures, and the only other squad which managed to replicate that feat was former champions Juventus.

And as they take on Lazio, sparks are sure to be produced, especially since either team will be going after the widely coveted sixth spot.

By the looks of things, expect a goal-fest this Saturday at the Stadio Olimpico.

Lazio did lose 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Roma. However, they were on a two-game winning streak before that, and were also unbeaten in 15 of their past 21 overall fixtures.
