New Roma signing set to be rested v Sassuolo

Roma summer signing Matias Vina is set to be rested by Jose Mourinho for the upcoming game against Sassuolo.

Il Tempo have claimed that Vina landed in Rome late in the current week after the international break and even though he seems to be doing well after picking up a minor injury, Mourinho will rest the Brazilian for Sassuolo. It is a precautionary measure from the Portuguese.

Riccardo Calafiori is expected to start in his place, with Lorenzo Pellegrini, Gianluca Mancini and Nicolo Zaniolo also facing fitness issues. Chris Smalling could be available next week.
