Roma and Sassuolo meet at Stadio Olimpico, in a match for the 19th round of the Serie A. In this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the home team, which records 1 win and 3 draws in the last 4 matches . In fact, the last time these two teams played a match at this stadium was on 03-19-2017, in a match for the Serie A that ended in the victory of Roma by (3-1). The goals of the match were scored by L. Paredes (16 ‘), Mohamed Salah (45’) and E. Džeko (68 ‘), for Roma, and G. Defrel (9’), for Sassuolo.


The home team is currently in the 4 th position of the league, with 38 points won, after 12 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Cagliari, by (1-0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Juventus, by (1-0). In the last 9 home league matches Roma has a record of 7 wins and 2 losses, so they have won 21 points out of 27 possible.

In this competition, he won the last 5 home matches. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 4 of the last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Under 1,5 goals. The team usually has no problem opening the scoring: it marked the first goal in 14 of the last 17 games for Serie A, of these 14 came to the break in advantage in 8 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 ‘in 12 .

The Roma have in this exhibition the opportunity to conquer their sixth consecutive victory at home by the Italian league and thus make up for the points that they have been wasting away from home, where they have not won three games. In his last match, he played a very balanced game against Juventus, but finished much less than the opponent and ended up suffering a natural defeat away from home. The minimum score of the last day confirms what the defensive system has been showing throughout the competition, since it is currently the best defense of the league, being that in nine games it did not suffer goals. On the other hand, his attack is the most final, which can be explained by the good possession of the ball that the team has been maintaining. The 4-3-3 has been the tactical formation most used by the coach Di Francesco, who should not have large absences for this duel.


After 6 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses, the away team is currently in the 14 th position of the league, with 20 points won. In the last match, they won in an away match against Internazionale, by (1-0), after in the previous match they won in a match against Sampdoria, by (0-1). For the championship, Sassuolo won 12 points out of 27 possible points, after 4 wins and 5 losses in the last 9 matches as a visitor. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so it was not very strong defensively. In 18 matches in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 8 times and never got the comeback. In the last 11 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have suffered 7 of their 20 goals between minutes (31’-45 ‘).

Sassuolo is still not in a good position in the Italian league, but he lives his best moment in the competition, as he comes from three consecutive victories, without having suffered goals in two of them. On the last day he had only 28% possession of the ball and finished almost half the time of the opponent, but still managed to leave the field with a victory over the Internazionale. However, the apathetic performance of the offensive sector confirmed what the team has been presenting since the start of the competition, as it now has the worst attack, with an average of 0.66 goals per game. One of the weaknesses of the club has been the lack of precision in the change of passes, which facilitates the work of the opponent. It is likely that the coach keeps the team in a 4-3-3, with highlight for Missiroli in midfield.
