Edoardo Bove could earn surprise start ahead of Stephan El Shaarawy

Roma’s line-up for tonight’s showdown with Inter seems to be in place with only one exception.

In fact, Daniele De Rossi is not unlikely to change much from Roma’s recent formation in the emphatic 4-0 win over Cagliari.

According to Italian media reports, the attack will be led by Dybala and Lukaku, with Gianluca Mancini and Diego Llorente once again protecting Rui Patricio’s sticks.

Angelino and Karsdorp are both set to start on the wings with Cristante and Paredes commanding the midfield alongside Lorenzo Pellegrini.

However, Stephan El Shaarawy remains uncertain to start.

This is likely due to De Rossi wanting to improve Roma’s defensive capabilities versus Inter’s top midfielder Hakan Çalhanoğlu and adopt a strategy to contain him. In order to do this, De Rossi could choose to rely on Edoardo Bove from the start.
