Alessio Dionisi reflected on Sassuolo’s poor start to the season and underlined the tough task ahead as they host Lazio.
The Neroverdi have started the season in disastrous fashion and currently sit 16th in the Serie A table after 17 games, seven points ahead of relegation candidates Hellas Verona.
Sassuolo have only won four outings this season, with their last victory at the end of October, and they’ve lost four of their last five Serie A matches.
Speaking in a press conference (via LazioNews24), Dionisi touched on Sassuolo’s difficulties this season and the strength of the upcoming opponents Lazio.
We haven’t started in the best way and this week was an important week of work to improve our start.
We know we are facing a strong team that didn’t start well despite having deserved more, with Empoli the match was already won and with the individual moments they didn’t win it.
We are not good in those moments. Samp and Fiorentina unblocked the match like that, we must be more cynical. Tomorrow we must put everything into the match because on paper Lazio are stronger than us.
A win over Lazio would be crucial for setting the tone at Sassuolo in the early stages of this year, giving them some vital confidence as they look to distance themselves from a possible relegation battle.
The Biancocelesti will be hungry to pick up their first win of the year following a frustrating two games against Lecce and Empoli.
