Zeki Celik to return to Roma’s starting formation vs Lazio

Andy Mattioli

Roma are only one day away from playing their final Derby della Capitale of the season against arch-rivals Lazio.

The Giallorossi are expected to make some changes to their starting formation compared to the most recent outing with Lecce.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, with Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini returning to the team’s starting XI, Daniele De Rossi is going to make adjustments on the wings.

The newspaper suggests De Rossi is pondering the option of fielding Turkish fullback Zeki Celik on the right and giving him the necessary freedom to roam on the right flank and play as advanced as he wishes, to help the team in their offensive maneuver.

In the meantime, Roma will heavily rely on the duo Cristante-Dybala, to give stability in the midfield and facilitate the connection between the midfield and the attack.

Leonardo Spinazzola has fully recovered and is also set to earn a place in Roma’s line-up.

Diego Llorente is currently favored to replace Evan Ndicka – out for suspension – alongside Gianluca Mancini.
