Renato Sanches, Marash Kumbulla to be called up for Juventus showdown

Andy Mattioli

Roma are expected to involve both Renato Sanches and Marash Kumbulla in the last match of the year with Juventus.

The two players were recently excluded – for different reasons – from the Giallorossi’s 2-0 win over Napoli.

According to Il Tempo, Sanches was excluded very last-minute due to having contracted a bad cold on the eve of the match at the Stadio Olimpico. He is expected to fully recover for the game at the Allianz Stadium on 30 December.

Marash Kumbulla, on the other hand, is set to earn his first call-up since suffering a long-term ACL injury. He is not expected to feature in the match at all, but Mourinho wants to start including him on the bench.
