Zaniolo to start from the bench against Bodø/Glimt

Roma forward Nicolò Zaniolo is once again going to start off the bench in Roma’s upcoming second leg of the Conference League quarterfinals against Bodø/Glimt, reports Sky Sport.

In fact, Jose Mourinho is reportedly thinking of deploying the same line-up that won the Derby della Capitale, with Lorenzo Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan behind Tammy Abraham.

Zaniolo will be utilized as a weapon off the bench, similarly to how he was used against Salernitana – a positive outing for the 22-year-old who provided a much needed spark off the bench in the second half.

In the meantime, Gianluca Mancini is nearing a return to the starting line-up after suffering a heavy blow to the knee in the first leg in Norway.
