Lazio Roma will be hosting Sassuolo this weekend, as the ongoing season of the Italian Serie A resumes after the international break.
Lazio has put up some strong performances off late and is within striking distance of a European finish. The club currently sits in the 7th place with 49 points, just two points behind Atalanta and Roma, both of which are at 51 points. A win in this game will take Mauricio Sarri's side to the 5th spot.
Lazio's two-match winning streak was cut short by its neighbors Roma, who managed to defeat Lazio by a convincing 3-0 scoreline. However, with the season moving into the final leg, Lazio players have no time to lose and will need to be at the top of their game this Saturday.
Sassuolo seems to have peaked in form just at the right time and has been unbeaten in its last 6 games. The side has picked up 14 points from a possible of 18 in the last 6 games, and as a result has gradually moved up on the points table, currently sitting on the 8th spot, with 43 points. With 8 games still to go, including the one against Lazio, Sassuolo will be fancying its chances of breaking into the top 6, a feat that they have not achieved since the 2015-16 season.
Another advantage for Sassuolo is the improvement in its away games. After 2 consecutive away losses, the club has won 2 and drawn 1 in the last 3. Despite the improved form of the visitors, most football betting sites are predicting a win for Lazio in this fixture.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Lazio Roma vs Sassuolo Calcio Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome, on 2nd April 2022.
With both the teams vying for a spot within the top 6, this promises to be a closely fought encounter, with both the teams scoring at least once. Sassuolo has been in prime form, but facing Lazio in its own backyard will be a different ballgame altogether. Especially as many of Sassuolo’s key players, including Filip Djuricic, Giacomo Satalino, Pedro Obiang, Filippo Romagna, and Jeremy Toljan are likely to miss out due to injuries.
As for the hosts, Luiz Felipe and Stefan Radu are unavailable due to injuries, while Pedro will be sitting out due to a suspension. While the game could easily go either way, we are predicting a win for Lazio this time around.
