Roma will have revenge on their mind this evening as they host Bodo/Glimt in the Conference League.
The reigning Norwegian champions dismantled the Giallorossi two weeks ago by a scoreline of 6-1 at the Aspmyra Stadion. It set-off a firestorm of criticism and was viewed as one of the most humiliating defeats in the club’s nearly 100-year history.
Manager Jose Mourinho will also be eager for his team to immediately get back to winning ways after their controversial loss to Milan on Sunday.
The Portuguese technician is expected to field a strong starting eleven and also recalled Gonzalo Villar, Borja Mayoral, Bryan Reynolds, and Amadou Diawara—all of whom have been left out of the team’s past three games.
The match kicks-off at 21.00 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
