Matías Viña to start vs Inter, Pellegrini could replace Mkhitaryan

Andy Mattioli

Today Jose Mourinho will decide whether to place Lorenzo Pellegrini among the starting eleven or deploy him off the bench against Simone Inzaghi’s Inter in the Coppa Italia, reports Il Tempo.

The Roma captain has continued to train individually over the past few days after recovering from a muscular injury that had sidelined him for three weeks.

The midfielder’s status for Inter is still unclear, although the 25-year-old will likely be called up by the Special One.

If Mourinho decides to give Pellegrini a chance from the start, the Italian international could replace Mkhitaryan behind the two strikers.

Matías Viña is ready to take back his starting spot on the left flank with Ainsley Maitland-Niles remaining on the bench.

Veretout is expected to be paired alongside Sergio Oliveira.
