Roma manager Jose Mourinho spoke about the impact the absences of Paulo Dybala and Romelu Lukaku could have on the match against Bologna.

In his pre-match interview with DAZN, Mourinho remarked, “We will be missing our two most important attackers tonight. But we want to show our strong mentality tonight.”

“We played on Thursday, so we had little time to prepare but we did well enough. Dybala and Lukaku are two important players for us, one is injured and one is suspended, we trust whoever replaces them. A door that closes but there is a window that opens for those who play little – those are players who work very well during the week and are prepared to play.”
