After an encouraging win at San Siro on Saturday night, Roma are already looking ahead to their third Europa League engagement of the season. The Giallorossi will face Real Betis on Thursday.

Mourinho could choose to implement some changes to the starting eleven as some of the players who featured on Saturday night may risk muscle fatigue playing only three days apart.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Leonardo Spinazzola will likely be rested. In his place, Nicola Zalewski is ready to suit up.

Meanwhile, Chris Smalling – who gave a towering performance in Milan on Saturday, gifting Roma the winning goal from a headed effort – could be replaced by Marash Kumbulla who recently completed his recovery.

Then, Tammy Abraham or Andrea Belotti could lead the attack as Lorenzo Pellegrini remains doubtful after feeling a minor tweak in his leg in the second half with Inter.
