Ndicka set to start in Torino showdown, Cristante and Lukaku will rest

Andy Mattioli

Daniele De Rossi is expected to apply a minor turnover to his team’s starting formation ahead of tonight’s showdown with Torino.

The Giallorossi will face the Granata only a few days after having played well over 120 minutes + penalties in the match against Feyenoord.

According to Il Tempo, De Rossi does not wish to revolutionize the team’s line-up but will decide on resting a select number of key players including Romelu Lukaku and Bryan Cristante. They will replaced by Sardar Azmoun and Edoardo Bove, respectively.

In the meantime, Evan Ndicka is fit and ready to earn his first start since December as defender Diego Llorente is still nursing a head injury suffered versus Feyenoord.

Kristensen and Angelino will play on the flanks with Pellegrini and Paredes leading the midfield.
