Sports Mole previews this weekend's Serie A clash between Hellas Verona and Roma.

Roma will be looking to keep up the pressure on Serie A leaders Juventus when they visit Hellas Verona on Sunday afternoon.

The Giallorossi have won their last four games in all competitions and reached the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia in midweek following a 1-0 win over Juve.

They have lost just one game all season and have the best defensive record in the league, having conceded 10 goals in their first 20 matches.

Hellas Verona have enjoyed a fine start to life back in the top flight after winning promotion from Serie B, but have suffered defeats in their past two matches.

They have one of the best home records in the league, having won eight and lost two games at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi.

Roma cruised to a 3-0 win when the two sides met at the Stadio Olimpico earlier in the season.

Jacopo Sala is doubtful for Verona, while Federico Balzaretti is the only injury concern for Roma.
