Roma are expected to field their strongest line-up in today’s second leg with Bayer Leverkusen.

The Giallorossi might have to adapt to Paulo Dybala’s questionable status as the Argentine is not 100% fit and could be replaced by Tammy Abraham or Tommaso Baldanzi.

Either way, Daniele De Rossi is expected to bring back the likes of Zeki Celik and Leonardo Spinazzola into Roma’s starting formation.

The Turkish fullback had been suspended for the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico. His absence was sorely felt as Rick Karsdorp gave a disastrous performance in replacing him.

Meanwhile, Il Tempo reports that Gianluca Mancini is also back at De Rossi’s disposal and will start alongside Evan Ndicka in defense.

Roma’s midfield will rely on Leandro Paredes, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Bryan Cristante.
