On May 26, 2024, in the 38th round of Italy's Serie A, Lazio will play against Sassuolo. The Roman club hopes to surpass their city rivals, Roma, although they cannot climb higher. The visitors' slim chances of remaining in the division were shattered in the last round.

Key statistics and trends:

  • Lazio has lost only one out of their last six matches before their draw with Inter.
  • Sassuolo has lost four out of their last five matches.
  • The most common result in matches between these clubs is 2-1 in favor of Lazio (five times, including three times in Rome).
  • Lazio has scored 19% of their goals, and Sassuolo 24%, in the first quarter-hour of the match.

Lazio - Form Analysis: Betting on Tudor pays off

The "Eagles" are the country's runners-up, but after this, Mazzarri didn't even complete the next full season. He was fired after being knocked out of the Champions League, where they suffered a heavy defeat against Bayern in Munich in March. Igor Tudor almost knocked out his former club, Juventus, in the cup semifinals. But, crucially, in the final stretch of Serie A, Lazio won against most opponents – only drawing with Monza (2-2) and sharing points with Inter in the last match (1-1).

Sassuolo - Form Analysis: Coaching change didn't help them

The "Neroverdi" parted ways with Dionisi, who couldn't stop the gradual decline in results compared to his predecessor, De Zerbi. His replacement, the more experienced Ballardini, failed to improve the situation and arguably made it worse. While they managed to defeat Inter again – the champions who lost to no one else – they mostly suffered defeats in other matches under Davide. The crucial match was against Cagliari in the last round, where they failed miserably, losing 0-2.
