Roma vs Sassuolo
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome
One of the most anticipated clashes in Italian Serie A this weekend will take place in the capital on Sunday where Roma welcomes the biggest surprise package Sassuolo. Visitors from Reggio Emilia have had so many stunning performances this season, and they are currently holding high 3rd place. Can they perform on this level consistently and maybe get involved into the UCL race?
Roma have just finished their Europa League game on Thursday against Young Boys, beating the opposition and securing the first spot in the group. Hopefully they can reflect good form onto divisional matches as well. Hosts are marked as favorites for the win at 1.66 odds.

Roma vs Sassuolo Prediction
Considering how aggressive these two teams love to be, we are expecting another high-scoring affair. Over 3.5 goals is the first bet that got our attention, currently being priced at 2.00 odds. Roma will be looking for a convincing win here to recover from devastating 0-4 loss suffered in Naples last week.
La Lupa is currently 6th with 17 points, six less than the leaders AC Milan. Considering how many points all top tier teams drop lately, nothing is lost when it comes to title race. Also, the best goalscorer Edin Dzeko has recovered from illness and will be taking his standard place in roster.
Sassuolo also suffered unpleasant 3-0 loss to Inter Milan last weekend. Team’s biggest strength is excellent efficiency, scoring 20 goals in 9 matches. Only two teams scored more goals than them so far. The last four games on the road ended with four straight wins versus Spezia (4-1), Bologna (4-3), Napoli (2-0) and Verona (2-0). However, we feel that streak is about to end.
