Sassuolo vs Lazio by Enzo
Sassuolo didn't look that poor away from home against Roma, as the team showed some improvements in attack and with counter attack, but that didn't stop players of Roma reaching quite easy victory with a 3:1 result. Visitors took the lead first, in ninth minute via Defrel, but the players of Roma upped the tempo very soon.
They scored twice in the first halftime in order to revert the scoreline, via Paredes in 16th and Salah in last moments of the halftime, while Dzeko just sealed the victory in 68th minute. This was fourth game in a row without a victory for Sassuolo, as they also scored a goal after three consecutive matches, but the side won't be too depressed since they stand well above the relegation zone having sixteen points more than red zone placed Palermo. Home team should be field up in 4-3-3 formation with Politno, Matri and Berardi as forwards. They are set to miss midfielders Luca Mazzitelli (16/0), Francesco Magnanelli (13/0) and Davide Biondini (11/0) due injuries.
Lazio, on the other side, didn't manage to get a victory away from home last time out, as the side had a goalless draw on the road against Cagliari two weeks ago. This draw stopped their winning streak of four matches in Seria A, five combined with the victory in Italian Cup over rivals from Roma.
Their match against Cagliari wasn't that interesting, but it needs to be said that the players of Lazio had more of the ball possession and chances created, however without being very concrete in their attacks. Lazio remained fourth at the table and stands on Europa League position, but are now six points behind Champions League placed Napoli and having just two points more than out of Europe placed Atalanta which sits on sixth position. Guests should be lined up in 4-3-3 formation with Anderson and Lulic on the wings, plus Immobile as central striker. Their coach Simone Inzaghi could have a full squad available to chose from, as Jordan Lukaku and Federico Marchetti having some fitness problems but should be ready for the game.
Sassuolo might have improved a bit, but it won't be enough for Lazio that has some serious quality this season. With the competitive motive being completely on the visiting side, I can't see anything but their (quite easy) victory.
