Sassuolo vs Lazio
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 11 November 2018
Kick-Off: 17:00 UK,
Venue: MAPEI Stadium (Reggio Emilia).
Lazio will hope to continue their strong run as they take on Sassuolo, who are stubbornly clinging to sixth spot and will want to firmly remain in a European football spot heading into the international break. The Aquile earned a 2-1 win over Marseille to further move closer towards sealing a spot in the round of 32. Domestically they have won three of their last five games, rebounding well from a 3-0 loss to Inter by beating SPAL 4-1.
Sassuolo, meanwhile come into this game having beaten bottom placed Chievo and will want to solidify their position. They’re keen on showing that they should remain as a serious contender for a Europa League spot and are again like the Sassuolo that were under Eusebio Di Francesco a couple of seasons ago.
Sassuolo’s standing, however, is largely based on picking up points against lower-ranked sides. Although they did manage to nick a win against Inter that was against a Nerazzurri side who have yet to hit top form and it’s highly unlikely they would manage to beat them now. Meanwhile, Lazio will be looking to get back into the top four with a win here, but can they get it done? Or will Sassuolo nick another big win against a big side?

Sassuolo vs Lazio: Prediction
The loss to Inter shows that Lazio continue to struggle against the top sides, as they have also lost to Napoli and Juventus this season, but Sassuolo certainly don’t belong in that group, despite having fared better this term. In addition, they’ve won four of their last five away games and have won their last four meetings with the Neroverdi across all competitions.
