Dybala hopeful to return to Roma’s starting line-up vs Lazio

Andy Mattioli

Despite not being 100% fit yet, Paulo Dybala is hoping to make an important contribution in the upcoming Derby della Capitale with Lazio.

The Argentine forward was limited to coming off the bench for the final 5-7 minutes of regular time in last night’s scoreless draw versus Lecce.

Daniele De Rossi did not wish to risk him and chose to play Tommaso Baldanzi from the start instead.

Now, however, Il Tempo reports that De Rossi and his staff are working to have Dybala fit and ready to play from the first minute in the Derby with Lazio.

The match is of too much importance for Dybala to not be given a chance to start.
