Ahead of this meeting, Monza have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches at home.
Since a loss in their previous game against Lazio in Serie A competition, Sassuolo and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Sassuolo managed 50% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, Lazio had 12 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Mattia Zaccagni (45') and Felipe Anderson (94') scored for Lazio.
The strike force from Sassuolo have suffered from a lack of goals in their past six encounters, contributing the poor return of just 3.

Coming into this contest, Sassuolo are without a win away from home in their last 5 matches in the league.
