Zaniolo and Pellegrini to start behind Abraham in Leicester showdown

Nicolo Zaniolo of AS Roma

With only one more day to go before Roma’s first leg of the Conference League semifinal with Leicester, the Giallorossi are finalising the preparations to Thursday night.

Corriere dello Sport reports that Nicolò Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini are expected to start behind Tammy Abraham.

José Mourinho has been testing a 3-4-2-1 line-up with Zaniolo playing alongside Pellegrini instead of partnering with Tammy Abraham up top.

Bryan Cristante is likely to feature from the start as well after recovering from back pain issues that had sidelined him against Inter.
