Roma to Win and Under 3.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Roma have won eight of their last nine home games to nil, including each of their last five. While Sassuolo have only won three times on the road in Serie A this term, 10 of their last 13 games have contained under four goals, as have each of the last 13 to feature Jose Mourinho’s hosts.

6/5odds when tipped

Roma 2-0

Reason for tip

Roma have conceded a league-low five goals in 12 home Serie A outings this campaign, and have shut out Juventus and Real Sociedad at the Stadio Olimpico in the past week. Sassuolo have Serie A’s fifth-worst defensive record this term, so the Giallorossi will fancy themselves for another routine win.

Roma vs Sassuolo Predictions

  • Roma have won eight of their last nine home games to nil, including each of their last five.
  • Sassuolo have only won three away league matches this term, taking just 13 of their 30 points on the road.
  • Under 3.5 goals have been scored in each of Roma’s last 13 games, as well as in 10 of Sassuolo’s last 13.

Romans build capital fortress

Roma may have frustrated at times this season, but their exemplary home form could yet guide them to a top-four finish in Serie A – as well as more continental success for Jose Mourinho. Having seen off Juventus and Real Sociedad without conceding at the Stadio Olimpico in the last week, the Giallorossi will approach Sunday’s meeting with an improving Sassuolo outfit in confident mood.

Roma have won five home games in a row – all to nil – after taking charge of their Europa League last-16 tie with a 2-0 victory over La Real on Thursday. Mourinho’s men have now won eight of their last nine on home soil, the only exception being when a much-changed team was turned over by Cremonese in the Coppa Italia – and all eight of those triumphs have been accompanied by clean sheets. Last week’s hard-fought win over Juve showed Roma’s potential, and if they maintain their form at the Stadio Olimpico, Champions League qualification could beckon – one way or another.

However, Sassuolo could represent difficult opponents after winning four of their last six matches – a run which began with that memorable 5-2 thrashing of Milan at San Siro in January. That sequence represents a fine achievement for a Neroverdi side which had previously gone eight matches without a win, and they also held Roma to a 1-1 draw in November’s return fixture. On the road, however, Sassuolo have won just three times all season, with 17 of their 30 points coming at home.

Low-scoring success the recipe for Mourinho

While Sassuolo’s attacking quality may put punters off the win to nil market, backing Roma to win a game containing under 3.5 goals looks a good way of ensuring additional value when backing the solid hosts, who are unbeaten in the teams’ last five meetings.

With Roma conceding a league-low five goals in their 12 home games in Serie A this term, we’re tipping a 2-0 win for the Giallorossi – who should have Mourinho on the touchline as he continues to battle against a suspension.
