Considering all the data presented, it is clear that Sassuolo and Lazio are close rivals, at least for this season. Despite a busy month, with games taking place just a few days apart, Lazio managed to achieve consistent results even in the UEFA Champions League. This suggests Lazio have enough squad depth to cope with a busy schedule.
The importance of the match is crucial and given that this is a Serie A game and not an early cup game, it is likely that both teams will be playing at full strength. Historically, Lazio have the advantage, having won four of the last five meetings. The factor of playing at home and away can play an important role in this. While playing at home can provide an advantage due to the support of the fans, the lack of significant home advantage for both teams recently makes this factor less influential for our bet.
In recent matches, both teams made a large number of shots on goal, which indicates an aggressive game. Possession statistics indicate that both teams tend to relinquish control of the ball, perhaps focusing on counter-attacks or direct play. Expected goals (xG) statistics combined with actual goals indicate the effectiveness of both teams in converting chances.
BTTS statistics play a key role in assessing teams with powerful attacks, and Sassuolo and Lazio fit this bill this season. Lazio's commendable performances against a congested fixture list suggest that the team's attack remains consistent regardless of the frequency of games. Sassuolo is not far behind. A careful analysis of recent matches shows a tendency for both teams to score. This pattern, combined with the observed data, suggests a high probability that both teams will score. The tendency to concede further strengthens this argument. With both teams showing attacking potential and defensive vulnerabilities, BTTS: YES seems like a logical choice.
Going deeper into the style of play, both Sassuolo and Lazio display an aggressive stance. Attacking intentions result in numerous chances that often lead to corners. Statistics from recent matches give a clear picture: both teams are consistently winning corners, with their average comfortably above the 9.5 mark. Given both teams' tendency to push forward and use wingers and full-backs in attack, it can be expected that there will be plenty of corner situations throughout the 90 minutes. In this regard, the Total Corners bet is very profitable.
