De Sanctis will face a late fitness test for Roma's Champions League match against Manchester City on Tuesday due to a groin strain he suffered last weekend against Verona.

De Sanctis is an elite goalkeeper in Serie A thanks to an excellent back line, but they'll be facing a very tough Manchester City attack Tuesday. If De Sanctis is unable to play, Lukasz Skorupski could get the start in his place.

De Sanctis made three saves and picked up an assist during Roma's 2-0 win over Verona on Saturday.

The Roma defense continues to be outstanding and De Sanctis has now posted clean sheets in four of five Serie A matches this season.

De Sanctis made four saves but allowed an 82nd minute goal during Roma's 5-1 Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.

De Sanctis, who led Serie A in clean sheets last season, is well on his way to doing it again, as he's posted shutouts in both of their league matches this season, coming against Fiorentina and Empoli. The Champions League victory Wednesday was a big one, as Roma will have to finish ahead of either Bayern Munich or Manchester City if they want to advance to the knockout stage.

De Sanctis made six saves but allowed a goal by Domenico Berardi four minutes into extra time in the second half of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Sassuolo.

It was a disappointing result for Roma and De Sanctis, who allowed just their third goal of the season Sunday. They'll look to bounce back after the international break when they take on Cagliari on November 25.
