Our football match prediction:
As expected, Roma defeated Palermo in Sicilia on Matchday 29, but, as things stand now, the Giallorossi are unlikely to put an end to Juve’s dominance in the Italian Serie A. The Romans are eight points behind league leaders Juventus ahead of the visit of Sassuolo and the team’s new goal is to finish the season in second place in the standings. The Romans recorded 12 wins in previous 13 home games in the Italian elite division and they are widely expected to beat the Neroverdi in Sunday’s football game. Edin Dzeko was rested against Palermo, but the Bosnia attacker is likely to lead attack for the capital club against Sassuolo. Luciano Spalleti’s men are a real force to be reckoned with at home and considering that Sassuolo failed to score in previous two league fixtures, we predict that the Romans will pick up all three points from the Stadio Olimpico clash.
