Dybala to be rested ahead of Derby della Capitale

Andy Mattioli

Despite Mourinho’s objections, Paulo Dybala is expected to travel with the team to Prague for Thursday night’s Europa League match.

After playing 98 minutes on Sunday in his first game since the muscle injury suffered over a month ago versus Cagliari, Dybala will be called up for Thursday night’s showdown with Slavia Praha.

According to Il Messaggero, Dybala has made it a point to wanting to be there with the team despite Mourinho pushed for him to remain in Italy.

However, the Argentine forward is unlikely to feature on Thursday night: Roma’s plan is to have him fully rested and ready to go for the big weekend fixture in Serie A – the Derby della Capitale with Lazio.
