As expected, AS Roma is the betting favorite in our sportsbook for this match. However, Jose Mourinho’s team only won one of its last five Serie A games on the road. On the other hand, Sassuolo only lost one of its last five games in all competitions.
Sassuolo Led by Domenico Berardi
Last weekend, Sassuolo came from behind to beat Empoli 4-3 on the road. The home side scored the opener only four minutes into the match, but Sassuolo didn’t give up and were up 2-1 20 minutes later.
They won thanks to a late goal scored by Domenico Berardi, who was named Player of the Match after scoring a brace. Berardi is among the league’s top scorers with seven only behind Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan who has 13. Berardi is followed by teammate Andrea Pinamonti, who has scored five.
Sassuolo has three straight home games without losing and already defeated a powerhouse at Mapei Stadium as the underdogs. We’re talking about the 4-2 victory over Juventus in late September.
Unlike AS Roma, Sassuolo isn’t playing in any international competition. That means they’ve had more time to prepare for this contest, tactically and mentally, and will also have fresher legs. That’s exactly the recipe for a tempting online betting underdog.
AS Roma Having Trouble on the Road
AS Roma lost to Servette on Thursday. The match, which took place in Switzerland, finished 1-1. The Italian side finished with 61% of possession but wasn’t effective in front of goal.
The good news is that Romelu Lukaku found the back of the net once again. The Belgian is the team’s top scorer in all competitions with 10 goals. You can expect him to be highly motivated and should consider including him in your soccer picks today as anytime goalscorer.
Regarding the Serie A, AS Roma defeated Udinese 3-1 in their last match. Gianluca Mancini, Paulo Dybala and Stephan El Shaarawy were the scorers. AS Roma also won possession with 65 percent. That’s becoming a trend and can make a huge difference. Before moving on, please look at El Shaarawy’s beautiful goal.

AS Roma is the soccer betting favorite even though they only won one of their last five matches on road.
Sassuolo Unbeaten in Last Three Meetings
Last season, Sassuolo won four points against AS Roma. First, they drew 1-1 at Mapei Stadium. Later, Sassuolo pulled off the stunner at Stadio Olimpico with a 4-3 victory.
Rejoice because both scored in each of their last five encounters, which should happen again on Sunday. In fact, I expect the total to go over 2½ goals, like it happened in four of those five meetings.

Sassuolo vs AS Roma Betting Predictions
If the game were in Rome, I would tell you to take AS Roma in a heartbeat, but Mourinho’s minions have struggled a lot on the road. However, I do see them scoring twice since Dybala and Lukaku are one of the best attacking duos in the league. Summing up, we’ll have a highly entertaining match that will finish with a 2-2 draw.
