Key Matchup

Mohamed Salah (Roma) vs. Nicola Murru (Cagliari)

Roma will look to overcome their humiliation at the hands of Porto earlier in the week. The Giallorossi are coming off of a decisive thumping of Udinese last weekend while Cagliari were handled easily by Genoa. The newly promoted Sardinians are extremely weak on the flanks so the Giallorossi must exploit this. Mohamed Salah was very quiet against Porto and must make his presence felt against Cagliari. If the Egyptian utilizes his speed correctly, he should have ample opportunities against Cagliari as Nicola Murru lacks the pace to be able to keep up with the ex-Chelsea man.
