[Serie A] Sassuolo - Lazio = 2 - 1

December 13, 2021

Lazio had to lose to Sassuolo with a score of 2-1 in the 17th week of the 2021/22 Italian League at the Mapei Stadium.

Playing as a guest, Lazio aims to bring home the full three points to make them return to the 2021/22 Italian Europa League zone.

Lazio immediately kicked off and presented a surprise for Sassuolo when the match was still showing the 6th minute. Mattia Zaccagni opened Lazio's lead after his action failed to be blocked by Andrea Consigli under Sassuolo's bar.

Trying to equalize, Sassuolo failed to penetrate the tight defense raised by Lazio. On the other hand, Lazio also failed to create opportunities that threatened the Sassuolo goal. 0-1 position for Lazio still lasted until halftime. Zaccagni's goal (6') was the only goal created during the first 45 minutes.

It took several attempts to attack before Sassuolo managed to rattle Lazio's net in the 63rd minute. Domenico Berardi's shot from outside the Lazio penalty box failed to be anticipated by Thomas Strakosha and resulted in an equalizer for Sassuolo.

Sassuolo completed his comeback in the 69th minute after Giacomo Raspadori's hard kick again made Strakosha pick up the ball from the Lazio goal. Sassuolo's 2-1 position against Lazio continued until the referee blew the whistle to mark the end of the match.

Lazio's defeat against Sassuolo made the Capital Eagle fail to cut the distance with the residents of the 2021/22 Italian League European zone.
