Mancini returns to starting line-up vs Bødo/Glimt, Zaniolo on the bench

Roma defender Gianluca Mancini

“Mancini’s doing well,” said José Mourinho in yesterday’s press conference ahead of a crucial second leg vs Bødo/Glimt in the Conference League quarterfinals.

According to Il Tempo, Mancini has fully recovered from a strong contusion to the knee he first suffered in Norway.

The Italian centre-back is expected to start in the defense alongside Chris Smalling and Roger Ibañez.

In the meantime, the newspaper reports that Nicolò Zaniolo will provide energy off the bench after a convincing display against Salernitana on the weekend.

Mkhitaryan and Pellegrini will start behind Tammy Abraham in the attack.
