Andy Mattioli

Roma prepare to face Albanian side Partizani in their last pre-season friendly of the summer.

Jose Mourinho and his men boarded a flight to Tirana earlier this morning where they will be involved in a friendly match in the evening before returning to the capital and starting preparations for the first Serie A matchday of the season.

Paulo Dybala and Nemanja Matic did not travel with the rest of the team.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Andrea Belotti and Stephan El Shaarawy will lead Roma’s attack. El Shaarawy will replace Dybala as Mourinho wants to try tout this combination ahead of Salernitana – a match Dybala will be forced to miss due to being suspended.
