Tammy Abraham to lead Roma’s attack vs Empoli in Lukaku’s absence

Andy Mattioli

Tammy Abraham is expected back in Roma’s starting line-up for their last match of the season.

The English striker is in fact favored to replace Romelu Lukaku – who will serve his suspension after taking off his shirt in his celebrations in the recent win over Genoa – as Daniele De Rossi wants to give him one more chance to redeem himself after a difficult return from injury.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Abraham could start alongside Tommaso Baldanzi as Dybala continues to nurse a muscle injury and his available is limited after playing less than 30 minutes vs Genoa on Sunday.

In the meantime, Edoardo Bove will replace Leandro Paredes who is also suspended.
