U.S. Sassuolo Calcio will take on Lazio as both sides are separated by one point in the Serie A standings. Furthermore, the two clubs are a few points away from the fourth and final UEFA Champions League spot.

Ahead of the matchup, Sassuolo manager Roberto De Zerbi spoke with the media, where Football Italia relayed his words. 

De Zerbi touched on how he wants his squad to play with belief because the Italian manager had high praise for Lazio as he hopes his team can leap over the Biancocelesti

Lazio has been doing very well in recent years, second only in consistency to Juventus. They have a strong identity, quality, physicality and, like us, have been working together for a long time. That is an advantage, especially this season.
