Lorenzo Pellegrini tries to recover for Rome derby

Andy Mattioli

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is questionable ahead of the highly-anticipated Derby della Capitale.

The Italian midfielder has been out of action for over a month due to a muscular injury which affected his calf.

According to Il Tempo, Pellegrini made considerable progress recently and is hoping to make himself available to Jose Mourinho for the derby on Sunday.

The club are expecting Pellegrini to make his return to group training today and train enough with the rest of the team in order to be able to come off the bench versus Lazio.

However, there is no guarantee Pellegrini will be called up by Mourinho who could decide against risking him right before the international break.
