Lazio vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: 3 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Lazio will be hoping to return to winning ways after back-to-back defeats to Torino and Inter Milan in the previous two rounds.
They are now just four points above the likes of Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Roma who share the fourth position and a potential continuation of the losing streak may put the team’s top-four finish in jeopardize in the remaining six rounds of the competition.
I Biancocelesti will have a nice chance to rebound on Wednesday, though, as they play host to Sassuolo in Gameweek No 33.
Sassuolo somehow found a way to complete a late comeback against Empoli on Sunday. Domenico Berardi scored a couple of late goals, including the winner in the seventh minute of stoppage time.
The fact that I Neroverdi have completed a comeback with ten men on the pitch is fascinating and it should normally boost the team’s spirits ahead of the next match.
However, the fact is that Alessio Dionisi’s men have pretty much nothing but pride left to play for in the remaining six games of the season.
They switched off completely in the previous away game, losing 3-0 to the likes of Salernitana. They did beat Empoli at the weekend but the win came much harder that it would usual do against such an out-of-form opposition.
Lazio vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
- Lazio will go into this on the back of successive wins in the clashes against I Neroverdi. The run involves this season’s 0-2 victory in January this year in Reggio nell’Emilia.
- Lazio have six wins, two draws, and two losses in the last ten home outings against Sassuolo.
- We have seen goals at both ends in eight of the previous ten H2H matches between these counterparts.
Lazio vs Sassuolo Prediction
This is a big game for Lazio. Sassuolo have nothing but pride to play for and they have lost two straight away outings against the likes of Verona and Salernitana, conceding five goals in the process.
The home win is well worth backing at the 1.66 odds, while we also see great value in the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.90 odds knowing how easy to break down Sassuolo have been of late, especially on travels.
