Lazio are in search of their first win of the year when they head to the Mapei Stadium where Sassuolo are now hovering just above the relegation after a losing run to begin 2023.
Sassuolo have struggled tremendously in the last two games and have continued their terrible form shown just before the World Cup break. The club lost to relegation-sitting Sampdoria in their first game of 2023.
The club headed to Florence shortly after, as Domenico Berardi scored another goal from the penalty spot in a 2-1 loss to Fiorentina. Despite losing all three points, they only saw the points disappear in the final seconds of the game.
As for Lazio, it’s been a seriously worrying time for them in January. The club let a 2-0 lead go against Empoli by conceding two goals in the last 10 minutes of the game.
Prior to this, Lecce managed to beat them after Ciro Immobile scored another goal that gave Lazio the lead once more. Now, Maurizio Sarri’s men are sitting down in fifth after being third just five games ago.
