Bryan Cristante to play in defense versus Sheriff Tiraspol

Andy Mattioli

Roma are looking to finish their Europa League group-stage run strong in tomorrow night’s match with Sheriff Tiraspol.

The Giallorossi will have to do without the likes of Paulo Dybala and Leonardo Spinazzola (injured) as well as Evan Ndicka (suspended).

According to Il Messaggero, Mourinho is likely to rely on Bryan Cristante as a temporary replacement of Ndicka in Roma’s backline.

This will not be the first time Cristante plays as a central defender. Otherwise, Rick Karsdorp could also fill in for Ndicka, with Zeki Celik starting in his place on the right flank.
