Turkish fullback Zeki Celik could be once again deployed from the first minute in Thursday’s Europa League showdown with Milan.

Celik was given the chance to start in the latest Derby della Capitale, where he delivered a convincing performance that might make Daniele De Rossi reconsider his starting-line up ahead of Thursday’s fixture.

According to Corriere dello Sport, in fact, De Rossi is said to be leaning toward including Celik in the team’s formation.

His mission will once again entail man-marking Milan attacker Rafael Leao, a duel that Celik repeatedly lost in the previous encounters.
