Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Thanks to a 4-1 win over Sassuolo Lazio managed to stay in the race for Scudetto. The Biancocelesti outclassed the Rossoblu at their Stadio Olimpico and they now aim to build on the performance they produced in Wednesday’s football match. Lazio are just six points behind league leaders Juventus and, no doubt, the capital club will adopt an attack-minded approach against Sassuolo. The Neroverdi dropped a one-goal advantage in a 3-1 loss to Roma in midweek and seeing that Eusebio Di Francesco’s men are on a four-game winless run on the road ahead of the trip to the “Eternal City”, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Ciro Immobile has been scoring goals for fun of late and we believe that the opposition defenders will have their work cut out for them when facing the former Borussia Dortmund attacker. Anyhow, home win appears on the horizon.
