Roma-Sassuolo will take place on December 26, 2018, at 12:00 PM (EST). Probable Lineups.
Roma back to the Stadio Olimpico in the boxing day after their expected defeat against Juventus at the Allianz stadium in Turin.
This is the moment to react to not lose other points from those teams currently holding the four available Champions League spots. The Lupi need three points to climb the Serie A standings.
Eusebio Di Francesco knows that the next two games against Sassuolo and Parma are vital for his future as the head coach of the giallorossi. A defeat tomorrow could lead to irreversible consequences.
The Italian coach will play his favorite backline with Manolas, Fazio, Florenzi, and Kolarov. NZonzi and Cristante will be shielding them in midfield. Diego Perotti should be available for this match. The Argentine could play on the left offensive flank. Cengiz Under will be operating on the right side while Zaniolo will be the trequartista behind Patrick Schick.
The Bosnian star Edin Dzeko will sit on the bench ready to play if needed.
