Another weekend, another win for Rudi Garcia's Roma. The Giallorossi's latest victory came away at Sassuolo, who are currently second from bottom in the Serie A table with 20 points and just five wins all season.
It wasn't a vintage Roma performance and the scoreline is slightly deceptive. They looked a little off-the-boil at the Mapei Stadium, and though they were undoubtedly in control, Sassuolo looked like they might find a goal and hold the usually free-scoring Lupi to a draw for long periods of the game.
In the end, it wasn't to be. Goals from the in-form Mattia Destro and Michel Bastos—who netted for the first time in a Roma shirt—won it for the visitors.
