Sassuolo vs AS Roma: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

AS Roma are looking to extend their unbeaten run in Serie A to four matches when they take on Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium in Matchday 14 on Sunday.


AS Roma hope to maintain the pressure on the Champions League qualification spots when they visit Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium in Matchday 14 of Serie A.

The Giallorossi go into the round of fixtures in fifth place after a late 3-1 win over Udinese last time out, with Jose Mourinho‘s side keen to find consistent form in the run up to Christmas.

Sassuolo had a last-gasp win of their own in Matchday 13, in a thrilling 4-3 victory at Empoli, pulling them five points clear of the Serie A relegation zone.

Sassuolo vs AS Roma: Predicted line-ups

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma are looking to Paulo Dybala to provide the spark in attack alongside Romelu Lukaku, whilst Edoardo Bove could step into midfield should Mourinho opt not to risk captain Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Tammy Abraham and Marash Kumbulla are still long-term absentees, whilst Chris Smalling is not expected to play in part in the match. Centre-back Gianluca Mancini is one booking away from suspension.

Sassuolo duo Mattia Viti and Pedro Obiang will be assessed closer to kick-off after recent injuries, but forward Agustin Alvarez is ruled out.

Ex-Roma men Matias Vina and Gregoire Defrel are expected to feature on the left flank, with Domenico Berardi and Andrea Pinamonti set to provide the goal threat in attack.
