Mourinho to rely on Andrea Belotti, Marash Kumbulla in Ludogorets clash

Preparations are underway for the upcoming return leg with Ludogorets to conclude Roma’s chapter in this year’s Europa League groupstage and determine whether the Giallorossi will go through to the knockout round.

Jose Mourinho is planning a minor turnover following Roma’s victory at the Stadio Bentegodi on Monday. The Portuguese technician is considering replacing Tammy Abraham with Andrea Belotti, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The Englishman could be rested and available off the bench ahead of the weekend Derby della Capitale.

In the meantime, Gianluca Mancini will be in the stands due to his suspension for accumulation of yellow cards. As a result, Marash Kumbulla will have the chance to take his spot in Roma’s starting eleven.

Rick Karsdorp and Nicola Zalewski are expected to regularly feature on the wings, with Matic and Camara possibly starting together for the first time in the midfield.
