Mile Svilar earns surprise start over Rui Patricio versus AC Milan

Andy Mattioli

Roma are hours away from kick-off to their must-win showdown at San Siro with AC Milan.

Jose Mourinho’s men will look to bounce back from the painful defeat at the hands of Lazio in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals.

Tonight’s starting formation for the Giallorossi will include a major surprise in the form of Mile Svilar.

Roma’s back-up goal-keeper is set to replace Rui Patricio between the sticks, reports Sky Sport journalist Angelo Mangiante.

This is reportedly a technical decision made by Jose Mourinho, and will be Svilar’s first Serie A start of the season.
