AS Roma vs Sassuolo: Kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

AS Roma look to build on their win over Juventus when they welcome in-form Sassuolo to the Stadio Olimpico in Matchday 26 of Serie A.

Fresh from their crucial victory over Juventus last time out, AS Roma return to action when they host Sassuolo at the Stadio Olimpico in Matchday 26 of Serie A on Sunday. The Lupi currently sit fourth in the table and are eyeing a return to the Champions League.

A rare Gianluca Mancini goal was enough to secure a 1-0 win over the Bianconeri last weekend, allowing Roma to recover from a shock loss against Cremonese, but Jose Mourinho‘s side must guard against complacency against Sassuolo.

The Neroverdi needed a last-gasp goal to overcome Cremonese themselves on Monday, but are in good form and have earned wins over AC Milan and Atalanta in recent weeks.

AS Roma v Sassuolo: Predicted line-ups

As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma striker Tammy Abraham is expected to return to the starting line-up, allowing Georginio Wijnaldum to drop into a deeper midfield role in place of the suspended Bryan Cristante. Ebrima Darboe and Ola Solbakken are ruled out through injury for the Giallorossi.

Sassuolo, meanwhile, will turn to ex-Roma forward Gregoire Defrel alongside Armand Lauriente and Domenico Berardi in attack, with the latter returning from suspension.

Roma defender Gianluca Mancini is one booking away from a ban, whilst Sassuolo pair Ruan Tressoldi and Kristian Thorstvedt must also watch their step.

AS Roma predicted XI v Sassuolo (3-5-2): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Zalewski, Matic, Wijnaldum, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, Dybala; Abraham

Sassuolo predicted XI v AS Roma (4-3-3): Consigli; Zortea, Erlic, Tressoldi, Rogerio; Frattesi, Obiang, Henrique; Defrel, Berardi, Lauriente
