Mile Svilar to make Roma season debut in Sheriff Tiraspol clash

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho is expected to rely on back-up goal-keeper Mile Svilar in Roma’s first Europa League match of the season.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Svilar is ready to make his first start for the Giallorossi this season on Thursday night, replacing Rui Patricio in goal.

Mourinho is also expected to rotate his defense with either Mancini or Llorente being sent to the bench.

In fact, Zeki Celik could feature as a central defender with Rick Karsdorp slotting in on the right wing in the absence of Rasmus Kristensen.

Zalewski and Bove are also predicted to start with Cristante and Aouar.

It remains to be seen whether Mourinho will choose to line-up El Shaarawy alongside Romelu Lukaku, or have Andrea Belotti play alongside the Belgian striker.
