Rui expected to make Roma debut

Il Corriere della Sera: The good news for Luciano Spalletti ahead of his team’s Coppa Italia clash against Sampdoria is the number of players at his disposal – 21.

There is the return of Diego Perotti from injury. Alisson will likely start in goal and in front of him we could see a back three of Fazio-Vermaelen-Juan Jesus. Almost one certainty, though, is the debut of Mario Rui, who Luciano Spalletti said he must decide whether he will start the player or introduce him as a substitute.

In midfield one of Paredes, De Rossi and Strootman will be out with Spalletti likely relaunching El Shaarawy and Nainggolan behind Dzeko with Totti likely being introduced in the second half.
