Bryan Cristante to rest for first time this season versus Slavia Praha

Andy Mattioli

Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante could be rested for the first time this season as the Giallorossi face Slavia Praha on Thursday night.

The Italian midfielder has featured in every single game for Roma so far in this year’s campaign, totaling even more minutes than the team’s shot-stopper, Rui Patricio, and proving once again his importance to the team.

However, according to Il Messaggero this could soon change given that Leandro Paredes is expected to be back in Roma’s line-up after serving his suspension with Lecce.

The Argentine international will take Cristante’s place in Roma’s formation, and play alongside Edoardo Bove and Houssem Aouar.
