PROBABLE LINE UPS | Sassuolo v Roma

Roma take on Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium today, as they look to recover from their defeat to Lazio in the Derby della Capitale at the weekend.

While Roma qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League after beating Ludogorets in the last game of the group stages, they took a narrow 1-0 loss at the Olimpico. But they have a chance of getting back on winning terms when they visit Sassuolo.

Sky Italia state that Jose Mourinho will hand a start to Cristian Volpato, who has been amongst the headlines due to a potential change for nationality. Nicola Zalewski is also expected to start, with Nicolo Zaniolo and Tammy Abraham also set to start for the Giallorossi.

Bryan Cristante is expected to start in the deepest midfield role, with Rick Karsdorp set to start at right wing-back.

Roma’s expected line-up v Sassuolo: : Rui Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibañez; Karsdorp, Cristante, Camara, Zalewski; Zaniolo, Volpato; Abraham.
