Lorenzo Pellegrini to start on the bench versus Fiorentina

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is still not feeling 100% match fit after his recent return from injury.

The Italian midfielder struggled to keep up in the last few games for Roma and now his status for the match against Fiorentina on the weekend is doubtful.

According to Sky Sport, Jose Mourinho is leaning toward keeping Pellegrini on the bench on Sunday, with the possibility of him coming on as a late substitute in the second half.

In his place, Edoardo Bove is ready to start alongside Bryan Cristante and Leandro Paredes as Roma look to secure another three points after their comeback win over Sassuolo.
