Stephan El Shaarawy vs. Ignazio Abate
After a sensational start to his Roma career since moving in January, Stephan El Shaarawy has suffered a bit of a “sophomore slump” this season for the Giallorossi.
However, the former Monaco man will get the chance to come up against his former club and will be facing an extremely out-of-form Ignazio Abate.
With the absence of Mohammed Salah, Roma must do a better job at exploiting their opponents on the flanks as Luciano Spalletti will likely point to El Shaarawy to be the one responsible for this. Milan’s Abate has been poor this season and has been often caught out position and, at times, has been the one lacking the most in Vincenzo Montella’s back line. El Shaarawy will have a golden opportunity to get his season back on track: let’s see if he will take advantage of the opportunity.
