Andy Mattioli

After having made his first season appearance in Roma’s 3-0 away win against Zorya Luhansk in the Conference League on Thursday, providing an assist for El Shaarawy’s goal and playing 70 minutes in total, Ebrima Darboe is rumored to start again on Sunday vs Empoli.

According to Alessandro Austini of Il Tempo, Darboe could start against Andreazzoli’s team alongside Jordan Veretout.

The 20-year-old impressed Mourinho to the point that the Portuguese technician is willing to rest Bryan Cristante ahead of the international break.

Cristante could return to the starting line-up after the break in the big match vs Juventus.
