Sassuolo and Roma take on each other in a highly-anticipated Serie A game at Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore. 

The Neroverdi continue with their attacking style of play, with 18 goals in total being netted in their last four league fixtures. 

Sassuolo are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Roma, and we predict that they will find the net in Saturday’s clash. 

Both Bourabia and Oddei are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.

The Giallorossi, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Napoli. 

Since the Romans are eager to keep their Champions League hopes alive, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. 

Villar and Ibanez are banned for the match, while Zaniolo and Juan Jesus have been tested positive for coronavirus. Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains sidelined through injury.

Team News:

Sassuolo have been dealt a huge blow as key forward duo Berardi (thigh) and Francesco Caputo (back), who have scored 22 goals combined this season, are both ruled out with injuries.

Midfielder Mehdi Bourabia (hamstring) and centre-back Filippo Romagna (knee) are both hoping to return from their injuries but Saturday's game may come too soon for the Neroverdi pair.

Attacking midfielder Hamed Traore could return to the first XI along with winger Jeremie Boga, while Filip Duricic may start the match in a false-nine position.

Roma defender Marash Kumbulla suffered a knee injury whilst on international duty with Albania and is expected to be out for up to a month.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (calf) and Nicolo Zaniolo (knee) both remain out injured, while defender Ibanez is suspended.

The Giallorossi can, however, welcome back midfielder Jordan Veretout from injury, as well as wing-back Bruno Peres from suspension.

Chris Smalling is also fit to return to the side, and although Fonseca would have liked to have rested the Englishman ahead of their Europa League quarter-final against Ajax on Thursday, the defender is expected to start due to the absentees at centre-back.

Striker Edin Dzeko is set to make his 250th appearance in all competitions for Roma; the Bosnian has not scored in his last eight Serie A matches and could equal his longest run without a goal in the competition (nine between October 2018 and January 2019).

Sassuolo possible starting lineup:
Consigli; Muldur, Chiriches, Ferrari, Rogerio; Obiang, Locatelli; Defrel, Traore, Boga; Duricic

Roma possible starting lineup:
Lopez; Mancini, Cristante, Smalling; Karsdorp, Diawara, Villar, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, El Shaarawy; Dzeko
