Zaniolo probable to start in Roma-Atalanta

Andy Mattioli

As he continues his recovery from a dislocated shoulder suffered two weeks ago in Roma’s 1-0 win over Cremonese, Nicolo Zaniolo is now eyeing Roma-Atalanta as the game for his return from injury.

According to Il Tempo, the 23-year-old will not be risked in Roma’s upcoming league engagement with Empoli as he is yet to participate in the team’s group training sessions.

The player will be reintegrated with the rest of Jose Mourinho’s men before Roma’s second Europa League fixture with Helsinki.

However, the medical staff has been impressed with the boy’s recovery and the player is expected to go as far as start in the big match with Atalanta before the international break.
