After being sidelined for over a month and a half with a thigh injury, Chris Smalling returns to Roma’s call up list.

According to Il Tempo, Smalling underwent group training yesterday and a decision was made to call him up following the absence of Bryan Cristante and Gonzalo Villar due to COVID.

Chances of seeing the English centre-back feature in the match are slim, but a return to the starting line-up could occur in the midweek Conference League fixture.
