Andrea Belotti to be paired up with Romelu Lukaku in Dybala’s absence

Paulo Dybala’s injury – which is expected to keep him out of action for around a month – will force Mourinho to reconsider his options.

The Portuguese technician will have to change the team’s attack in light of the Argentine’s injury.

Thus, Andrea Belotti is set to take Dybala’s place alongside Romelu Lukaku, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport.

That is relatively good news as Belotti has been on a hot streak as of late, making an impact on and off the bench: 3 goals and 2 assists in 7 Serie A appearances, plus 2 goals in the Europa League.

Belotti and Lukaku are expected to lead Roma’s attack together after the international break with the likes of Monza, Slavia Praha and Inter.
