Enjoying an unbeaten start to the season, AS Roma look to secure a third win in four games when they take on newly promoted Monza at the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A Matchday 4.
The Giallorossi recorded back-to-back 1-0 wins over Salernitana and Cremonese, before snatching a point in a 1-1 draw against Juventus on Saturday. The result against the Bianconeri saw Tammy Abraham open his scoring account for the season and the England international will be looking for more goals when Monza arrive in the capital.
Jose Mourinho’s side are boosted by the arrival of striker Andrea Belotti on Sunday, and AS Roma are seeking a further three points as they make an early push for a return to the Champions League.
Despite a summer splurge, Monza‘s start to life in the top flight has not gone to plan and the Serie B play-off winners have lost all three of their opening games so far.
