Nicola: 'Sassuolo more unpredictable'

Davide Nicola beat Roma on his Udinese debut, but warns Sassuolo are “a very different opponent and more tactically unpredictable.”

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

“When the weekend comes around, it’s exciting to see how the work done in training will translate to the match situation,” said the Coach in his Press conference.

“Everything is possible. The challenge for a tactician is getting to know the players and figure out a way they can coexist to become decisive for the team.

“Faith in ourselves is a core principle, but it’s also a challenge that never ends. Enthusiasm for a victory is one thing, but it must be only fleeting, so we can build up to the next test.

“Sassuolo are a very different opponent to Roma and more tactically unpredictable. They control the ball well, have good individual talents and we’ve studied them carefully to find the best approach.”

Udinese squad for Sassuolo: Nicolas, Musso, Scuffet; Ekong, Nuytinck, Opoku, Pezzella, Stryger, Ter Avest; Behrami, D'Alessandro, De Paul, Fofana, Mandragora, Pontisso; Lasagna, Machis, Micin, Pussetto, Vizeu
