Belotti to start alongside Lukaku in AC Milan showdown

Andy Mattioli

Andrea Belotti is reportedly ready to return to Roma’s starting line-up.

Following their recent defeat in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals with Lazio, Roma are looking to bounce back in the weekend fixture with AC Milan at San Siro.

Jose Mourinho is expected to moderately rotate the squad, especially given the absences of Paulo Dybala – out injured – and Sardar Azmoun who departed the capital on Thursday to join the Iran national team ahead of the Asian Cup in Qatar.

As a result, Corriere dello Sport reports that Belotti will replace Dybala in Roma’s starting formation on Sunday.

The ex-Torino striker will take his place alongside Romelu Lukaku.

In the meantime, Lorenzo Pellegrini is likely to remain on the bench as he still dealing with a back injury. In his place, Bove, Cristante and Paredes will lead Roma’s midfield.
