Key Match-up:

Juan Jesus  vs. Pol Lirola 

Coming off a very poor performance, one which was highlated by viral blunder on social media, the task for Roma’s Juan Jesus does not get any easier this Wednesday against Sassuolo.

Highly rated, young, Spanish right-back Pol Lirola has drawn praise throughout Italy during his first full season in Serie A. The Juve-owned youngster, who has a very good mix of both speed and strength, has become a mainstay on the right flank for Sassuolo and has seemlessly filled the shoes of Sime Vrsaljko, who joined Atletico Madrid this past summer.

Brazilian Juan Jesus must keep his composure and err on the side of caution. Juan Jesus has a knack for losing the ball at inopportune times and often finds himself having to make-up for a mistake. The Brazilian must contain the runs of the Spanish right-back and prevent the central defenders from having to double their workload by having to carry him.
