Genoa-Roma: the probable formations

Genoa host Roma this evening at the Stadio Ferraris

Roma travel to Liguria to face-off against Genoa this evening at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Both teams will be forced to deal with several key absences as new Grifoni manager Andriy Shevchenko will be without his top scorer, Mattia Destro, along with two of his strongest defenders, Nikola Maksimović and captain Domenico Criscito.

As for Roma’s José Mourinho, he won’t be able to rely on midfield duo Bryan Cristante as well as Gonzalo Villar—who both tested positive for COVID-19.

However, there is some positive news for the Giallorossi: Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicolo Zaniolo are both expected to start after suffering minor knocks during the international break.

Kick-off is at 20.45 CET.
