Sassuolo vs Lazio: Prediction
Sassuolo moved to 13th place in the Serie A standings after a 3-1 win over Bologna. Francesco Caputo, former Empoli man, showed up big time after five-game dry-spell and scored a brace against Sinisa Mihajjlovic’s team.
The Neroverdi have picked up seven points from last five league games and scored 10 goals in the process, but also conceded 9. That run pretty much sums up their entire campaign.
Pegolo, Rogerio, Chiriches, Berardi and Defrel are on the injury-list, Ferrari and Traore and doubtful for this one.
The Biancocelesti have extended their winning streak in the league to three games after beating Lecce 4-2 before the international break. This time around, Joaquin Correa stole the show with two goals, but Ciro Immobile, of course, contributed as well with his 14th goal of the season.
Lazio have claimed 17 points from last 7 games and moved to 3rd position in the league, levelled with Cagliari and 7pts behind the Nerazzurri.
Berisha is surely out for the guests, Marusic is questionable.
The Neroverdi are hot-and-cold at their MAPEI stadium with 3-0-3 record. They have no problems scoring as they’re averaging 2.5 goals per game, but they also tend to concede a lot – two per bout.
Lazio have collected ten points from six games on the road. They’re netting 1.67 goals per games, whilst shipping 1.17 goals per bout.
We’re in for a fast-paced, entertaining game that should generate goals in big numbers.
With an average of 3.82 goals over 11 games, Sassuolo are one of the most overish sides in the league – behind Atalanta and just above their next opponent. All their home games had over 2.5.
The freely-scoring visitors have bagged 21 goals over last seven league games. At least three goals have been scored in 83% of their games away from home.
This game can go completely crazy if we see an early goal.
