Nemanja Matic, Gianluca Mancini to be rested in Sassuolo clash

Andy Mattioli

Immediately following their recent Europa League victory in the first leg with Real Sociedad, Roma turn their attention to their next opponent in Serie A – Sassuolo.

The capital club will be forced to face the Neroverdi without Lorenzo Pellegrini, Ola Solbakken and Andrea Bellotti, all of whom are nursing injuries. Additionally, Bryan Cristante will be suspended.

According to Corriere dello Sport, there is a good chance that Jose Mourinho could choose to rest of his more utilized players including Nemanja Matic and Gianluca Mancini.

The newspaper claims that Edoardo Bove could take Matic’s place, whereas Marash Kumbulla – fresh off a goal in Roma’s latest win over Real Sociedad – could start in the defense.
