Roma star Paulo Dybala is likely to be on the bench for the club’s Europa League clash against Slavia Praha later today.
The Argentine has been a vital player for the Giallorossi since last season, but he has also faced multiple injury issues. He recently returned from injury and even picked up a vital assist in the Serie A against Lecce, who conceded two late goals.
But with a game against Slavia Praha coming up today, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via TMW) state that Dybala is likely to be on the bench. Jose Mourinho wants to make sure that the 29-year-old’s minutes are carefully managed and the Roma boss wants to keep his best players fit for the upcoming tie against Lazio.
It is seems likely that Romelu Lukaku will start, but he will be paired with either Andrea Belotti or Stephan El Shaarawy. Gianluca Mancini, Evan N’dicka and Diego Llorente are expected to start at the back, with Zeki Celik and Nicola Zalewski to operate as wing-backs.
