Nemanja Matic to make first official Roma start vs Juventus

Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic is expected to make his debut starting appearance for Roma in the Giallorossi’s showdown with Juventus in Turin on Saturday night, reports Il Tempo.

In Nicolò Zaniolo’s absence, captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is expected to play more advanced alongside Paulo Dybala and behind Tammy Abraham.

The midfield will involve the duo of Bryan Cristante and Nemanja Matic, who recently came off the bench in Roma’s first two games with Salernitana and Cremonese.

Jose Mourinho is expected to rely on this line-up for the duration of Nicolò Zaniolo’s recovery as the 23-year-old is reportedly going to miss at least 3 weeks of action.
