UEFA accept Roma’s appeal: Zaniolo will be available against Ludogorets

Andy Mattioli

Good news for Jose Mourinho who will be able to rely on Nicolo Zaniolo in Roma’s upcoming return leg with Ludogorets at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night.

UEFA have accepted Roma’s appeal to reduce the three-match ban to two for the 23-year-old attacker following his red card in the home match with Real Betis earlier in the month.

Zaniolo will be at Mourinho’s full disposal on Thursday night given that he has been able to shake off the painful knock to the thigh suffered in the Giallorossi’s recent outing at Verona.
