Renato Sanches could make surprise start versus Lazio

Roma must turn their attention to the upcoming derby with Lazio after a deflating defeat to Slavia Praha on Thursday night.

The Giallorossi will have less than two days to prepare the highly anticipated Derby della Capitale.

Jose Mourinho – who exited last night’s match frustrated and unhappy with his team’s performance – is expected to make some changes to the Giallorossi’s starting eleven on Sunday.

Besides Paulo Dybala and Bryan Cristante – both of whom will resume their place in the team’s XI – Mourinho could choose to give Renato Sanches a surprise start, reports Corriere dello Sport.

After coming off the bench with Lecce and Slavia Praha, Sanches is reportedly nearing full availability to play from the start and could potentially replace Houssem Aouar in Roma’s line-up versus Lazio.
