Zaniolo to return against Salernitana

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho seems intent on confirming once again the same starting eleven featured in the Derby della Capitale and against Sampdoria in Roma’s upcoming Conference League fixture vs Bodø/Glimt.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport reports that the Special One will field the same eleven in a 3-4-2-1 formation in Norway.

Meanwhile, Zaniolo is still nursing an injury to his flexor muscle which he picked up on international duty with Italy.

The 22-year-old will likely miss out on the midweek fixture and prepare for Roma’s league game against Salernitana.

In fact, Zaniolo is then expected to return to the starting line-up and replace captain Lorenzo Pellegrini who will be out serving a one-match ban due to accumulation of yellow cards.
