Roma will be looking to return to Serie A action with a win this weekend to improve their chances of finishing in a Champions League spot. Meanwhile, Sassuolo will be hoping to close the gap on the teams in the European spots.
Serie A Preview
It has been a damaging month or so for AS Roma, as they have dropped out of the top-four in Serie A, and are now holding on to the final Europa League spot. Defeat this weekend against Sassuolo could see them drop out of the European places altogether. Roma’s form has been terrible over their last six, as they have lost three times, and have won just twice. Back-to-back defeats before the international break means that the next couple of games in the league with be vital for their Champions League aspirations. A third defeat in a row could see the difference between themselves and the top-four extend to eight points, which could be a mountain to climb with less than ten games of the season remaining after their weekend.
Sassuolo have been a tough side to beat throughout the season, as they have lost just eight times in 27 games. That number of defeats is the same as Roma, Napoli and Lazio. However, draws have been the biggest sticking points for Sassuolo, as they have drawn on nine occasions this term. Their recent form has been solid, but is also not enough to put intense pressure on the sides in the Europa League spots. Sassuolo have won two of their last six, and have lost on just two occasions. They will be hoping to bounce back from the defeat that they suffered before the international break against Torino this weekend.
