Read AS Roma vs Sassuolo live streaming online as i giallorossi need to get together again after exhausting themselves in the Champions League when they host Sassuolo on 9/20/2015.
It wasn’t that long ago that Roma and Sassuolo were perfect strangers, but now that the Neroverdi have managed to stick in the top flight for three straight seasons, this budding rivalry has a bit of lore to it; who can forget Domenico Berardi’s 94th minute equalizer two seasons ago or the time that Seydou Doumbia actually scored a goal? Thanks to some shrewd loans and some impressive young players, Sassuolo has the looks of a Serie A mainstay, rising from 17th place in their maiden season to 12th last year.
Sassuolo will never be confused with Italy’s true title contenders, but they’re more than capable of playing the upsetter, indirectly influencing the Scudetto race this season. Fortunately for Roma, the brief history between these two clubs has been painted red, as Rudi Garcia has managed to take eight points from Roma’s first four matches against Sassuolo, including a three-nil drubbing last April.
We haven’t really touched on this week’s opponents, but you know the drill, Eusebio Di Francesco’s side is no stranger to scoring goals. Sassuolo plays with width and likes to hit on the counter, so in essence they are Roma to Roma’s Barcelona, if that makes any sense. Expect Sassuolo to deploy the same compact defensive line the Giallorossi used against Barcelona this week, with Di Francesco’s men aiming to keep Falque and Salah at bay, while Paolo Cannavaro and Francesco Acerbi will attempt to strip Dzeko of the ball the moment he receives.
