Roma look to bounce back from their latest defeat to Napoli in this week’s Europa League fixture with Helsinki. This time around, the match will unfold on Helsinki’s artificial pitch in Finland on Thursday night.

The capital club may also use this as an opportunity for squad rotations. As learned by Leggo, Jose Mourinho could choose to rest Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nemanja Matic.

The Roma captain has been fighting with a nagging muscle injury for the past few weeks and the Special One is hesitant in risking him any further. Similarly, Matic came on in the final minutes of Roma-Napoli as he’d suffered a muscle tweak before kick-off.

As a result, the Italian newspaper reports that Bryan Cristante and Mady Camara will continue to feature in Roma’s starting eleven.
