Sassuolo 1-1 Roma : Giallorossi failed to maintain the lead

Last Updated on 10/11/2022 by

Tammy Abraham ended a two-month goal drought in Serie A, but Sassuolo’s Andrea Pinamonti snatched a point to further dent Roma’s recent form.

Although Tammy Abraham and Andrea Belotti were dropped, Lorenzo Pellegrini joined Paulo Dybala, Leonardo Spinazzola, and Georginio Wijnaldum on the injured list. Jose Mourinho also had to get over his Derby della Capitale defeat. For the hosts, who were coming off back-to-back losses, Gregoire Defrel and Mert Muldur were still injured, but Armand Laurienté was reinstated from his suspension.

A Davide Frattesi rocket out from under the crossbar was fingertipped by Rui Patricio after Luca D’Andrea drilled onto the sidenetting.

Both teams had chances to score, but Andrea Pinamonti resisted the urge to fall as Rui Patricio approached him. Roma then reacted from that play, but Eldor Shomurodov was stopped by the legs of Andrea Consigli.

Frattesi nodded from a corner as Laurienté squeezed past defenders for a curler that glanced the far top corner. When Consigli rushed outside of his penalty area to block Shomurodov, he took a big risk but avoided getting flagged.

On the cusp of halftime, Nicola Zalewski had a great opportunity to give Roma the lead but volleyed over with the inside of his left foot after a cross from Zeki Celik.

On the 76th minute, Laurienté crossed for an unmarked Hamed Junior Traore, giving Sassuolo a huge opportunity. However, Traore took a heavy touch and Rui Patricio sprang into action to make the save.

Roma eventually got on the board, but more importantly Tammy Abraham ended his Serie A dry spell of two months and seven games after coming on as a substitute and scoring a towering header at the near post off a cross from Gianluca Mancini on the right.

When Laurienté sped down the left and pulled back from the byline for Pinamonti’s flick from five yards away, beating Chris Smalling at the near post, Sassuolo responded.
