Roma are looking to keep the momentum going after beating Juventus 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night.

Mourinho’s men immediately turn their attention to the first leg of the Europa League playoffs with Real Sociedad.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, this match will entail some squad rotation on Jose Mourinho’s part.

The Special One is likely to rest Leonardo Spinazzola who’s played the last four consecutive games. In his place, Stephan El Shaarawy is ready to start.

Similarly, Tammy Abraham is expected to lead the attack after not featuring in Roma’s starting line-up on Sunday night.

Moreover, the Italian newspaper claims Diego Llorente could make his starting debut for the Giallorossi against his former side. The Spaniard – who joined Roma on loan in January – is expected to replace Gianluca Mancini who hurt his ankle in Roma’s win over Juve.
