Our match prediction:
Miroslav Klose finally opened his goal scoring account in the current season in Lazio’s Europa League triumph over Galatasaray (3-1). With 8 scored goals in two successive home matches, Lazio proved once more they are capable of giving hell to any opponent at Stadio Olimpico. Now they await Sassuolo, who are one point above, and a third straight victory in front of their supporters could ensure i Biancocelesti’s rise to the 7th place in the overall standings. The Modena-based side ended their seven-game winless run in the Serie A by beating Empoli at Stadio Città del Tricolore with three quick-fired goals, thus boosting their Europa League dream. A share of spoils could secure their current position in the table, but a victory could allow them to keep pace with Milan. All in all we are up for an interesting clash on Monday evening, with a possible spectacle for the fans. We predict a real nail bitter, while giving a slight advantage to the home team.
