Sassuolo vs Roma build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
One win across their previous five Serie A outings has impacted Sassuolo’s push towards playing European football next term. Roberto De Zerbi’s men also go into this weekend’s game having struggled at home of late. Across their last five outings at the MAPEI Stadium, they’ve accumulated six points from 15 available. However, last time out I Neroverdi ended a four-game winless streak by running out 3-2 winners against Hellas Verona, though it’s been over a year since Sassuolo registered back-to-back victories in their backyard.
Consecutive league defeats have left Roma five points below the final Champions League spot. Most worrying for Paulo Fonseca’s side was their inability to register a goal in each of those aforementioned defeats against Parma (2-0) and Napoli (0-2) at home just before the recent international break. On the road lately, I Giallorossi have been struggling, too; across their previous five league outings away from home Roma have suffered three defeats whilst picking up one win (1-2 v Fiorentina).
- Sassuolo (vs Torino): Consigli; Toljan, Marlon, Ferrari, Rogério; Magnanelli, Obiang; Berardi, Defrel, Djuricic; Caputo.
- Roma (vs Napoli): López; Cristante, Roger Ibañez, Mancini; Karsdorp, Pellegrini, Diawara, Spinazzola; Pedro, El Shaarawy; Dzeko.
Filippo Romagna, Kaan Ayhan and Mehdi Bourabia sit this game out for Sassuolo through injury. Francesco Caputo and Domenico Berardi are both doubtful for the hosts. No fewer than five Roma players are missing this weekend. Nicolo Zaniolo, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marash Kumbulla remain in the physio room while Roger Ibanez and Gonzalo Villar are suspended. Paulo Fonseca will be hopeful Jordan Veretout, Bryan Cristante and Chris Smalling can take part.

Player to watch: Edin Dzeko (Roma)
If he turns out for Roma this weekend, Edin Dzeko will make his 250th appearance for the club in all competitions. A landmark moment for the former Manchester City marksman who has registered 116 goals since relocating to Italy’s eternal city, which comfortably places him third behind Roberto Pruzzo (138) and Francesco Totti (307) on the Giallorossi’s all-time top scorers list. However domestically the feared Bosnian striker is currently on an eight-game scoring drought, meaning another blank will see him equal his longest run of matches in Serie A without a goal, which he endured between October 2018 and January 2019.
