Roma vs Sassuolo prediction
Captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is a key figure for Roma – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Lorenzo Pellegrini

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini has been a key part of the club’s resurgence under Daniele De Rossi and the combative 27-year-old has had a major influence on all aspects of the Giallorossi’s play.

Pellegrini to lead by example again

Lorenzo Pellegrini has lodged six goals and four assists from his midfield berth for Roma this season and the hard worker has also been mixing from a defensive perspective, completing 1.3 tackles per game in Serie A. Pellegrini could be a prominent figure for Roma again on Sunday.
