After drawing at the death with Fiorentina in a 2-2 thriller, Roma look ahead to their return leg with Brighton in the Europa League Round of 16.

The Giallorossi will fly to England on Wednesday prior to Thursday’s fixture which will likely see a lot of players return to the starting formation.

First and foremost, Corriere dello Sport reports that Lorenzo Pellegrini will be back in the line-up after coming off the bench on Sunday versus Fiorentina.

Moreover, Zeki Celik and Leonardo Spinazzola will also feature in Roma’s starting XI: the Turkish fullback was fatigued following an intense performance in the first leg with Brighton whereas Spinazzola was rested for precaution.

De Rossi will evaluate further rotations by also taking into account Roma’s next Serie A fixture with Sassuolo.
