Sassuolo vs Lazio Predictions & Analysis

Lazio finally ended a three-game winless run last weekend when they dispatched Sampdoria 1-3 on the road. Maurizio Sarri’s men finished the job in the first half of the affair at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.

The competition’s joint-top scorer Ciro Immobile notched a brace on the occasion to take his league tally to 13.

Lazio still have a mountain to climb before joining the battle for European positions. They are currently 8th in the league table with only 7 wins in 16 matches so far in the season.

The Biancocelesti are now set to travel to MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore to battle attacking-minded Sassuolo in what should be a goal fest by all parameters.

Sassuolo will come into this off the back of a 2-2 draw at Spezia. They were a much better team on the pitch on the occasion, but eventually had to rescue a point thanks to two late second-half goals form substitute Giacomo Raspadori.

They are now unbeaten in four straight league outings, three of which ended in stalemates.
