Dean Huijsen is expected to make his second start for the Giallorossi this afternoon as Roma face Hellas Verona at Stadio Olimpico.

In De Rossi’s debut on the sidelines, the new interim coach has decided to rely on Dean Huijsen from the start.

The Dutch centreback – only 18 years old – is set to make an appearance in Roma’s starting line-up which will rely on a 4-3-2-1 formation as opposed to Mourinho’s preferred 3-5-2.

According to Italian media reports, Huijsen will replace Gianluca Mancini – who is suspended – and play alongside Diego Llorente and Rick Karsdorp and Leonardo Spinazzola in a four-man defense.
