The end of the domestic season is upon us across Europe, and that includes over in Italy. The Serie A title race has been locked up for weeks now, but of course, that’s not the only race on the table. There’s a battle going on to see who will acquire the top four spots in the division, and a number of clubs are still involved in the hunt. One of those clubs is Roma who will be gearing up for a big game this weekend, as they prepare to take on mid-table Sassuolo.

Sassuolo

Sassuolo have had a decent campaign by their standards, but now, it’s time to keep building on that in preparation for next season. They’ve got a decent base to work with, they’ve been in the top flight for a few years now, and their fans want to see a bit more gradual progression. That doesn’t seem like too much to ask for, because if they aren’t careful, they could wind up getting left behind. This is an incredibly competitive league, and it’s only going to get better as the years go on.

Team News

Berardi is set to be back in the starting XI after recovering from the flu, with Djuricic being set to drop out of the team.

Roma

Roma haven’t had their strongest of seasons, especially in comparison to last year, but their recent form has given fans cause for hope. They seemingly have plans in place to do some big things during the summer transfer window, and we’re talking both on and off the pitch. There’s still a chance that they could slip their way into that top four conversation, but even if they don’t, getting back on track next season and aiming for the top of the table is the priority.

Team News

Pellegrini is doubtful with a muscle injury, whereas De Rossi will start on the bench before his farewell match on the final day.

Factors to Consider

  • The game will be played at Sassuolo’s Citta del Tricolore.
  • Sassuolo have won one, drawn four and lost one of their last six games.
  • Roma have won four and drawn two of their last six games.
  • Sassuolo have scored eight goals and conceded eight in their last six games.
  • Roma have scored nine goals and conceded two in their last six games.

Conclusion

With the end of the season looming it feels like Roma have much more on the line here, and as a result, we’re confident in suggesting that they’ll be the ones to get the job done. From a managerial point of view things certainly still appear to be up in the air, but purely based on their results, it seems like they’re on a bit of a roll right now. We think they’ll concede, but we do believe they’ll edge themselves over the line to give themselves a shot of making it into the top four on the final day.
