Fonseca wants to see his team play high up, a group capable of dominating possession. Today’s match against Sassuolo must show tactical improvements.
Roma must collect three points in the third consecutive match at the Stadio Olimpico. The Giallorossi suffered 4 goals in the first two Serie A matches against Genoa and Lazio but Sassuolo may be a tough opponent as well. De Zerbi plays a proven 4-3-3. Berardi and Traorè could put the backline of the Lupi in danger again.
Paulo Fonseca believes Sassuolo’s Italian coach is an excellent football strategist who likes to keep possession of the ball: “Stats show that. When a team proposes this type of football it deserves my attention and praise,” said Fonseca during the press conference yesterday.
“I’m confident we will see further improvement against Sassuolo both in terms of the quality of our game and ideas. I don’t know if Sassuolo will play with a back four. We have prepared for the various possibilities.”
