Lukaku, Dybala partnership to debut in Roma-Empoli

Andy Mattioli

Roma are looking to bounce back after the international break following a disappointing start to the season.

With eleven players gone on international duty, Jose Mourinho will have to make do with the ones who stayed behind at Trigoria including Paulo Dybala who is set to return to group training this week.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Dybala is aiming to return to Roma’s starting eleven versus Empoli on 17 September.

The same newspaper claims that Romelu Lukaku could make his first starting appearance in that game, paired alongside the Argentine forward.

This would mark their first playing time together as Dybala remained out for Roma’s last match against Milan.
