Sassuolo vs Lazio: Match Preview
The Biancocelesti are one of the form sides of Serie A right now and have won the last four Serie A games, they have not reached five consecutive wins in the competition since October 2017. Lazio have lost only one of the six Serie A away matches against Sassuolo (2-1 in October 2015) – a run which Simone Inzaghi will hope can continue. The Biancocelesti will be sweating on the fitness of leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile, who is struggling with a bruised and swollen ankle, which he sustained during the Azzurri’s game against Armenia.
Sassuolo currently find themselves sitting mid-table with a mixed bag of results this season under Roberto De Zerbi. Sassuolo do not have the best form after returning from an International break, they have conceded eight goals in the previous two matches in Serie A this season.
Sassuolo vs Lazio: Expected Lineups
Sassuolo: Consigli; Toljan, Marlon, Romagna, Kyriakopoulos; Locatelli, Magnanelli, Duncan; Djuricic, Caputo, Boga.
Sassuolo vs Lazio: Prediction
Sassuolo picked up their first home win this season two weeks ago and will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run to three games.
Lazio have been in good form lately with four consecutive league wins, but the international break might have come at the wrong moment for Simone Inzaghi’s side.
This should be an entertaining game, I am expecting both teams to score.
Prediction: Sassuolo 1-2 Lazio
