Lorenzo Pellegrini doubtful for Rome derby after suffering back injury

Andy Mattioli

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is doubtful for tomorrow night’s Derby della Capitale with Lazio.

The Italian midfielder was not involved in training earlier today as he is currently dealing with a back injury suffered in the match against Atalanta on Sunday.

According to Il Romanista, Pellegrini underwent tests on his back and is now likely to be called up for the derby although Mourinho is not expected to rely on him from the start.

The Roma skipper will sit on the bench with Edoardo Bove ready to replace him in Mourinho’s formation.
