Zaniolo could rest in Conference League clash vs Vitesse

Andy Mattioli

Nicolo Zaniolo managed to avoid suspension ahead of a crucial derby game despite being one yellow card away from receiving such ban.

According to Corriere dello Sport, however, the 22-year-old is likely to be benched against Vitesse in Roma’s midweek Conference League fixture at the Stadio Olimpico.

Mourinho indicated in his post-match comments following Udinese-Roma that he’d noticed some key players looked tired, one of them being Zaniolo.

Whereas Tammy Abraham is bound to start once more, Zaniolo should be on the bench with El Shaarawy slotting in alongside the Englishman to lead the Giallorossi’s attack.
