Mourinho ready to give Belotti and Zaniolo a chance with Napoli

Andy Mattioli

Roma are only two days away from a crucial Serie A showdown with Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome where Mourinho’s men will face the league’s top team led by Luciano Spalletti.

The Giallorossi will have to defend well against Italy’s most prolific side and this will require several adjustments on the part of Jose Mourinho.

As reported by Il Tempo, the Portuguese technician is faced with a dilemma concerning his team’s attack for Sunday night.

Mourinho wants to rely on Belotti’s physicality, strength and work rate and at the same time give Nicolo Zaniolo – who missed the return leg with Betis due to suspension and came off the bench in Genova earlier in the week – a chance to finally unlock his scoring.

The Italian newspaper claims that in all likelihood the two will start on Sunday with Lorenzo Pellegrini slotting into the midfield alongside Mady Camara who should replace Nemanja Matic.
