One could argue that Lazio’s performance against Sassuolo was among the most dominant of its Serie A campaign so far this season. The Biancocelesti created far more clear-cut goal-scoring chances in the match and simply overwhelmed Sassuolo’s double-pivot midfield setup.

Former Italian defender Massimo Piscedda notes that this win for Lazio was more than just taking home the three points.

For Piscedda, he believes that this performance from the Biancocelesti showed true character and adversity, especially as it faced off against another top half of the league table side.

Piscedda provided his thoughts on Lazio’s performance, with comments being relayed by the Italian-based outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi.

Lazio showed they have character; they won it with temperament and desire. They managed the match well and paid attention to the characteristics of the opponent.

Sassuolo always takes goals. Maybe they needed more attention in the first minutes. I didn’t see the best Lazio but a 70% performance was enough. Milinkovic did well, especially compared to the match against Parma.

Lazio’s four-match winning streak has come at the right time as the side is now back in the hunt with the rest of the top-four contenders in the league standings.
