Matchday 3: Roma-Sassuolo, the probable formations


Roma host Sassuolo tomorrow evening in the Italian capital for their third league match of the campaign.

It will also be the first league affair that Roma play in front of their supporters at the Stadio Olimpico since the start of COVID-19 pandemic.

The Josè Mourinho era has started in bright fashion for Roma—winning the first four matches of their campaign in all competitions. They’ll hope extend their streak to five and enter the showdown after drubbing Salernitana 4-0 two weeks ago.

Sassuolo, meanwhile, are still getting used to life after Roberto De Zerbi. The Neroverdi travel to the Eternal City with four points to their name after narrowly defeating Hellas Verona before drawing 0-0 against Sampdoria.

AS Roma (4-2-3-1): Patricio; Karsdorp, Mancini, Ibañez, Calafiori; Cristante, Veretout; Zaniolo, Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan; Abraham

Bench: Fuzato, Reynolds, Kumbulla, Vina, Diawara, Villar, Zalewski, Bove, Carles Perez, El Shaarawy, Shomurodov, Mayoral
