Roma are looking to face Bayer Leverkusen in the first leg of the Europa League semifinals on Thursday night.

After beating Udinese and drawing with Napoli last night, the Giallorossi will look to secure an important advantage in the first leg at home at the Stadio Olimpico.

According to Il Tempo, Daniele De Rossi is fairly confident to have Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling back at his disposal for Thursday night.

Lukaku is predicted to start after missing the last three games with a muscle injury.

Additionally, Rick Karsdorp is also expected to return to the team’s starting formation.
