Lazio – Eagles are stumbling under Sarri?

On Saturday, the Biancocelesti resume their push for a European spot with the visit of in-form Sassuolo. A fixture that will not inspire happy memories. Lazio lost the previous two Serie A meetings between the sides. Neither took place in Rome, though, and it is there where Maurizio Sarri’s charges hope to ignite the spark which had begun to fade, dropping points in three of the last five league games (W2 D2 L1).

Keeping things tight at the back looks like being key to any success enjoyed at Stadio Olimpico in round 31. Lazio boast clean sheets in six of the past nine league games, winning five, but failed to win all three encounters across this period in which their defence was breached (D1 L2). This includes their most recent outing, which was in Rome. A 3-0 drubbing to fierce city rivals Roma as the designated away side.

Key Stat: In 2022 Lazio have two wins from five Serie A home games (W2 D2 L1), with both wins coming against teams worse off in the league table – 13th-placed Bologna and 19th-placed Venezia – than upcoming opponents Sassuolo, who are ninth.


Sassuolo Over 1.5 Goals



Sassuolo – Free-scoring Neroverdi won’t be kept quiet?

An unbeaten six-game run (W4 D2) has revived aspirations of playing in Europe next season. The Neroverdi are among the form teams in Italy right now, scoring bagfuls of goals wherever they go in their pursuit of precious points. The four scored in the 4-1 trouncing of Spezia last time out before the international break taking their tally across their last half-dozen fixtures to 16, scoring over 1.5 goals in each.

This include all of their last three on the road, in wins at Inter Milan and Venezia and the draw in Salernitana. Something to keep an eye on in Rome, meanwhile, is a rapid start to proceedings from the guests. Sassuolo have netted two or more first-half goals in three consecutive away outings. In fact, no team has done so in more away matches (8) this term, which includes both outings in Milan as well as Florence.

Key Stat: Sassuolo’s superb recent form has been about outscoring the opposition. As despite avoiding defeat in six successive fixtures, they have only managed one clean sheet – though, shockingly, that was in their 2-0 win away at defending champions Inter.

Lazio Vs Sassuolo Betting Advice

An unbeaten six-game run (W4 D2) is what Alessio Dionisi’s Sassuolo team take to Stadio Olimpico on Matchday 31, seeking their second away win in three meetings with Lazio having never failed to score across all eight of their visits in Serie A. Moreover, throw into the mix Lazio’s spotty home form (W2 D2 L1) and the case for the visitors, who are attractively priced (7/2 to win, 11/10 win or draw), only grows stronger.


Lazio Vs Sassuolo – Key Facts:

  • Sassuolo came from behind to beat Lazio 2-1 at home in December. Victory in Rome, a feat achieved as recently as June 2020, would see the Neroveri claim their second ever league double over the Biancocelesti.
  • Lazio have failed to win the last five games in which they conceded at least one goal. This is ominous therefore ahead of Saturday’s encounter, against opponents who have scored in all eight Serie A visits to the Stadio Olimpico for this fixture.
  • Sassuolo boast away wins against AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus this term. Therefore a visit to Lazio, who have two home wins from five in 2022, isn’t as daunting as it seems.


Both teams form part of the chasing pack in the race for Europe. Lazio two points back from sixth-placed Atalanta as Sassuolo close to within eight on the back of some inspired recent results. In essence then, this is a contest neither side benefits from drawing. Which could lead to quite the tussle. Not that this fixture rarely disappoints: seven of eight meetings in Rome saw Over 2.5 Goals as well as Both Teams Scoring.
