Verona vs Roma build-up & previous line-ups:
It’s been a miserable start for Verona who have lost all of their Serie A games so far this season. Two of those losses — against Sassuolo (2-3) and defending champions Inter Milan (1-3) — came at home meaning Gli Scaligeri could lose their opening three home league games for the first time in Italian top-flight history. More worrisome is the fact Verona come into this weekend’s match winless in their last 10 league games at Bentegodi (four draws and six defeats); only twice before had they registered a longer streak: 12 in 2016 and 1973. Putting the 3-0 awarded to Verona in the last meeting aside, the last time The Mastiffs have won a home game against Roma in Serie A was in October 1996 (2-1). Since that occasion the Romans picked up four wins and four draws on the road at Verona before the awarded game last season.
Jose Mourinho’s appointment was certainly a statement by Roma who are desperate to end their long championship wait. The Giallorossi were last Serie A champions in 2001 under Fabio Capello with Gabriel Batistuta leading the line and Francesco Totti wearing the captain’s armband. This current incarnation is one of three clubs with a 100% record heading into matchday four. They began with a resounding 3-1 win against Fiorentina before sweeping Salernitana aside (0-4 at Stadio Arechi) the following week. However, last time out with Mourinho celebrating his 1,000th match as manager, they left it very late to secure a 2-1 success against Sassuolo with Stephan El Shaarawy registering a 90th minute winner. In their previous 60 Serie A campaigns only twice have they picked up four wins in their opening four games, in 2013-14 and 2014-15 under Rudi Garcia, and on both occasions Roma finished second.

Player to watch: Lorenzo Pellegrini (Roma)
“He is a player with quality, a great deal of potential and he told me yesterday that he’ll sign the new contract soon. I think it can definitively give more strength to this rapport he is building with the fans. [Lorenzo] Pellegrini is the captain, he will sign a new contract and is very important for us,” these were the words of Roma boss Jose Mourinho following their Conference League opening week win over CSKA Sofia on Thursday evening.
Pellegrini registered a brace as the Giallorossi ran out 5-2 winners; consequently, he is now on five goals across six appearances in all competitions. A near ever presence this season Pellegrini to date has scored two Serie A goals while creating a further one. His counterpart wearing a Verona jersey Darko Lazovic has the same number of assists but is yet to find the net.Pellegrini also has the Serbian midfielder beat when it comes to chances created and passing accuracy, but that can be attributed to The Mastiffs poor start.
