Lukaku unlikely to recover for Sassuolo match

Andy Mattioli

Romelu Lukaku is heavily doubtful ahead of this weekend’s fixture with Sassuolo.

The Belgian striker was recently ruled out of Roma’s return leg with Brighton in the Europa League Round of 16 after suffering pain in his hip.

According to Daniele De Rossi, this physical issue is a recurring one for Lukaku and will require of him to rest for a few days.

Thus, Sky Sport claims it’s highly improbable that Lukaku will be able to feature on Sunday vs Sassuolo.

In his place, Sardar Azmoun is expected to start once again after an excellent performance with Brighton.
