Stephan El Shaarawy was one of the few players who looked lively and engaged in last night’s midweek Conference League clash against Vitesse at the Stadio Olimpico.
Initially, the Italian winger was expected to start but Mourinho deployed Matías Viña on the left flank instead.
In the end, it was El Shaarawy long pass to Karsdorp that helped Roma level the game in the final minutes on Thursday night.
According to Corriere dello Sport, the 29-year-old has a concrete chance of featuring from the first minute in the Derby della Capitale.
Mourinho counts on his experience in order to secure the left flank and offer considerable attacking output in what is setting up to be a crucial match to keep the hopes of reaching top four alive for both teams.
