Primavera’s Joao Costa trains with Roma’s first team ahead of Servette

Andy Mattioli

Roma have began preparations for their upcoming midweek Europa League fixture.

After coming out with a victory in Tiraspol two weeks ago, Roma will play against Swiss side Servette at home on Thursday night.

Jose Mourinho is expected to apply a minor turnover to his starting eleven as well as call-up a few players from the Primavera.

Young fullback Joao Costa was once again included in today’s training session after earning his first call-up on Sunday with Frosinone.

Mourinho considers him a valid option in case Roma were to switch to a 4-2-3-1 during the match.

As a result, Costa will be on the bench on Thursday evening, ready to possibly come on in the final minutes.
