Mourinho to rely on Matic, Smalling and Abraham vs Juventus

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho and his staff are preparing the starting eleven which will face Juventus on Sunday night at the Stadio Olimpico.

After a deflating performance against Cremonese, Roma’s line-up is expected to undergo some changes which will see Mourinho revert back to his most reliable players including Chris Smalling and Nemanja Matic.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Smalling will return to the starting line-up after serving his suspension. In the meantime, Matic will replace Gini Wijnaldum who played his first full match on Tuesday and is in need of rest.

Finally, Tammy Abraham will lead Roma’s attack, replacing Andrea Belotti.
