Roma defender Gianluca Mancini is expected to be available for Thursday night’s Europa League showdown.

The Italian centreback walked off the pitch on Sunday night with muscle pain in his calf after scoring the opening headed goal against Udinese.

According to Il Tempo, Mancini will most likely be back at Mourinho’s disposal in the next few days.

The Roma vice-captain is going to train with rest of the team while on painkillers, allowing him to be called up for the Giallorossi’s trip to Switzerland where they will face Servette on Thursday night.
