Lazio vs Sassuolo Betting Tips: OVER 2.5

While their performance in the domestic league may have fallen short of expectations compared to their previous season's strong finish as runners-up, Lazio can find comfort in clinching a spot in continental competition for the next season, a feat that seemed improbable at one point.

Certainly, the lion's share of credit for sneaking into the top seven positions belongs to their late-season resurgence, as the Biancocelesti collected a commendable 14 out of 18 points on offer during that ascent, while their unbeaten streak stretched to seven competitive matches after holding Serie A champions Inter to a 1-1 draw last time out.

Despite confirming their seventh-place finish, with no chance to overtake their city rivals AS Roma in sixth due to a weaker head-to-head record, the high-energy side led by Igor Tudor will strive to conclude the season in style in front of their supporters, where they previously registered five home victories on the bounce.

Their final test for the 2023-24 Serie A season will come against Sassuolo, a side that will begin the next league campaign as a second-tier team for the first time since their promotion to Calcio's top tier in 2012-13, after succumbing to a deplorable 0-2 defeat against fellow strugglers Cagliari last week, leaving their loyal fans in tears.

Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time before Neroverdi's 11-year stint in the Italian top division came to an end, given their lifeless form in the final stages of the campaign, as evidenced by their devastating record of just one win - a shocking 1-0 victory over champions Inter - in their previous nine top-flight fixtures (D3, L5).

Their constant struggles away from their stadium significantly contributed to their relegation to Serie B, as the Emilia-Romagna outfit amassed a dismal single-digit tally of nine points from 18 league outings, placing them among the poorest travelers in the division this term, while being defeated in all but one of their 10 road trips.

Even worse, eleven of Sassuolo's last 15 away outings across all competitions have seen them concede two or more goals, with all those encounters involving at least three goals, indicating that the in-form Lazio side can capitalize on their faltering opponent's troubles to conclude the season on a high note. Although they are written off, the Neroverdi have often managed to break though the Biancocelesti's defense, doing so in 8 out of 9 visits to the Olimpico, thus a home victory in a goal-rich contest should be expected.
