Roma’s Expected Starting Lineup for Derby della Capitale vs Lazio

By Apollo Heyes -

Roma are looking to strengthen their spirits with an important Derby della Capitale win over Lazio tomorrow.

Team News

The Giallorossi have started 2022 in decent fashion, only losing twice in the league since the start of the new year. Draws against Genoa and Udinese have raised some eyebrows, but it seems as if Jose Mourinho is finally starting to get the performances out of his squad in the Italian capital.

Only Leonardo Spinazzola is unavailable for Roma heading into tomorrow’s derby, although there are some doubts surrounding Lorenzo Pellegrini as well.

Expected Starting Lineup

Mourinho is set to field a strong squad to face Lazio in tomorrow’s derby, with Tammy Abraham and Nicolo Zaniolo leading the attack. January signings Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sergio Oliveira are both expected to start the game on the bench.

Doubts include Roger Ibanez, who could lose out to Marash Kumbulla, and Nicola Zalewski, who could be benched in favour of Matias Vina.

Below is Roma’s expected starting lineup for tomorrow’s Derby della Capitale against Lazio:

  • Roma (3-5-2): Rui Patricio; Ibanez, Smalling, Mancini; Zalewski, Mkhitaryan, Cristante, Pellegrini, Karsdorp; Abraham, Zaniolo.
