Paolo Cannavaro, US Sassuolo

Sassuolo eliminated Luzern (3-0, 1-1) in the previous round of qualification for Europa League and in the final match they face Crvena zvezdaSime Vrsaljko (Atlético Madrid) and their top scorer Nicola Sansone (Villarreal CF) both left the club, while on the other side they brought Timo Letschert (FC Utrecht), Politano (AS Roma) and Alessandro Matri (AC Milan), but it seems that they had stronger squad last season. Their coach Eusebio Di Francesco said that they know that visitors have very strong team, especially in the attack, but on the other side he told the media that they finished the last season at the 6th position in Serie A. Without any doubt they are favorites to go through, but it won’t be an easy job for them because team from Belgrade will be fully motivated to make good result in the first leg.

FK Crvena zvezda won the trophy in Serbian Super Liga and they played in the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League, but failed to go through after Ludogorets eliminated them. They started amazing in their domestic football league and scored 15 goals in the last 5 matches. Seems that they have some problems in the defence, but their attack is very good and Crvena zvezda will try to do their best in order to hit the net at least once. They played 4 matches in Europe this season and conceded at least one goal on each game, but on the other side they scored in every game. Marko Grujić left the club and joined Liverpool, while Luis Ibáñez joined Trabzonspor. On the other side they bought few quality players such as Guelor Kanga (Rostov), John Jairo Ruiz (Lille) and Pablo Mouche Palmeiras). Two best players from the previous season Hugo Vieira (20 goals) and Aleksandar Katai (14 goals), so visitors have very decent squad.

Team News

Home side have no problems with injuries and will have full squad available for this game. On the other side, visitors also have no injury concerns, but they will be without Guelor Kanga who is suspended for this match.
