Nemanja Matic is expected to be back at Jose Mourinho’s disposal for Sunday’s Derby della Capitale with city rivals Lazio.

According to the latest report by Il Messaggero, the Serbian midfielder has reportedly recovered from the issues that prevented him from taking part in Thursday night’s Europa League match with Real Sociedad.

The veteran player is thus predicted to take his place in Mourinho’s starting line-up on Sunday as Roma prepare to face Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio.
