Dybala, Smalling and Matic to start in Empoli clash

Andy Mattioli

Roma look ahead to their next league fixture after a humiliating elimination from the Coppa Italia with Cremonese.

Jose Mourinho is once again expected to rely on his veteran players after applying a minor turnover on Wednesday evening.

Italian media claim Paulo Dybala, Chris Smalling and Nemanja Matic are set to take their place in the Special One’s starting eleven on Saturday.

Lorenzo Pellegrini’s presence is doubtful, with El Shaarawy once again favored to start on the wing. Tammy Abraham will lead the attack after Andrea Belotti replaced him on Wednesday night.
