Antei: “It will be a match unlike any other.”


On-loan center-back Luca Antei is set to feature against his parent club this Sunday when Sassuolo travel to the Olimpico. The Roma product was capped this week by Italy’s U-21 National Team and the Roman boy admits his emotions will be high on Sunday. “For myself, it will not be a match like any other. Upon entering the field, I think I’ll have very strong emotions. They have everything you need to win. Big players in all departments and an extraordinary organization of the game. They have stand-out individuals, but some of them are absent and this could help Sassuolo. Gervinho and Totti will be missing, but they still have men who can make a difference at any moment like Borriello, Lijaic and Florenzi, who is also a great friend of mine.”
