Lorenzo Pellegrini becomes only Roma player to feature in seven consecutive European Rounds of 16

Andy Mattioli

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is ready to reach a personal milestone in his career as club captain.

The Italian midfielder has recently been one of the leading players in his position in Europe, scoring 5 goals and 3 assists in the last 8 games.

Tomorrow night, Pellegrini will lead the Giallorossi in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16 versus Brighton.

According to Leggo, this will be the first time a Roma player features in seven consecutive European Rounds of 16; only Totti and De Rossi managed to appear in 8 Rounds of 16 in Europe across the years but never in a consecutive succession.

Over recent years, Pellegrini reached two European semi-finals and two European finals.
