Preparations are underway for tomorrow night’s showdown with Inter Milan at Stadio Olimpico.

Daniele De Rossi and his men are looking to further improve their winning streak in a tough battle with this year’s Scudetto favorites.

Following three positive results with Hellas Verona, Salernitana and Cagliari, De Rossi is unlikely to make drastic changes to his starting formation.

However, in order to contain Inter’s best player at the moment, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, De Rossi could opt to include Edoardo Bove in Roma’s starting eleven.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Bove could end up replacing Stephan El Shaarawy in the line-up, with Lorenzo Pellegrini being deployed further up the pitch and Bove dropping back with the objective of stalking Çalhanoğlu all over the pitch.
