Andrea Belotti earns place in Roma’s starting line-up in Dybala’s absence

Andy Mattioli

Andrea Belotti is expected to be given more playing time by Jose Mourinho in the weeks to come.

The Italian striker started off strong his second season in the Italian capital, scoring 3 goals and 2 assists in 7 Serie A appearances as well as 2 goals in the Europa League campaign thus far.

The most recent performances from him and Lukaku proved that the two strikers can co-exist with each other.

Therefore, Corriere dello Sport reports that Belotti will likely take Paulo Dybala’s place in Roma’s starting eleven in light of the Argentine’s injury which could potentially keep him out of action for over a month.

Belotti and Lukaku have recorded together 207 goals with their respective Italian clubs – a goal tally that should motivate Mourinho to pursue this partnership more frequently in the coming weeks.
