AS Roma will be looking to maintain their excellent form in Serie A this weekend, as they search for a fourth win in six. However, Sassuolo also come into this showdown in fine recent form after picking up victories in their previous two matches.
Serie A Preview
It has been a fine second season in charge for Jose Mourinho at AS Roma, as the Italian giants look set to finish the campaign in the Champions League spots. There is still a long way to go this term, but Roma currently finds themselves sitting fourth in the standings. They have picked up 14 wins from their 25 games, and they come into this showdown on Sunday in fine form after winning three of their last five.
Over that period, they have suffered just one defeat. Last weekend, there was an example of how far the club have come under Mourinho, as they battled to a victory over Juventus. The only goal in that win was scored seven minutes into the second half, with Gianluca Mancini rattling home his effort from the edge of the box.
Sassuolo has eased their relegation worries in recent weeks, as they have moved up to 13th in the standings. They have won three of their previous five, and they will be chasing a third straight victory on Sunday. Over that period, they have lost just once, which has enabled them to open up a 12 point advantage over the sides in the bottom three places.
A victory this weekend could move them up to tenth in the standings, depending on other results around Italy. In their previous game, they picked up a dramatic 3-2 win over Cremonese on Monday evening. The winning goal was scored in the 92nd minute by Nedim Banjrami.
AS Roma vs Sassuolo Head to Head
Four of the previous five matches between these two teams have ended in draws, including each of the last two. AS Roma won this exact fixture last term by a 2-1 scoreline, with Sassuolo’s most recent win over Roma being achieved in February 2020.
AS Roma vs Sassuolo Prediction
This should be an interesting fixture in Serie A this weekend, as both sides come into the match in solid form. However, Roma’s unbeaten record against Sassuolo may be too hard to avoid. We could see Mourinho’s side picking up a slender 1-0 win.
