Zeki Celik eligible to start ahead of Nicola Zalewski versus Inter

Andy Mattioli

Turkish fullback Zeki Celik is hoping to earn a place in Mourinho’s starting eleven that will face Inter later today.

Roma will turn their attention to Inter less than two days after playing in the Europa League which means Mourinho is set to make a minor turnover.

According to Corriere della Sera, Spinazzola’s absence will likely prompt the Special One to reconsider Nicola Zalewski’s position on the wing.

Given the importance of the match and the caliber of the opponent, Mourinho could in the end choose to rely on Zeki Celik who has proven himself in previous games against top sides.

Rick Karsdorp appears to be a lock for the right wing, with El Shaarawy and Belotti duelling for a spot alongside Romelu Lukaku.

Meanwhile, Bove is reportedly set to start over Houssem Aouar in the midfield: he will be paired up with Bryan Cristante and Leandro Paredes.
