Giallorossi Playmaker Pellegrini a Doubt for Real Betis Showdown

With the top spot of Group C in the Europa League at stake within match-week three of the competition, some concern commences to creak in Roma’s dressing room as the Giallorossi playmaker Lorenzo Pellegrini is considered a doubt for the capital club’s showdown against Spanish outfit Real Betis.

According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 26 year-old central midfielder was forced off the field this weekend at the San Siro against Inter during the second half due to a minor strain within his thigh.

Although the injury is not extremely serious following the results from several medical assessments, the skipper has been labelled as a doubt for Roma for their vital mid-week fixture.

So far this season, Pellegrini has played a tremendous role within Roma’s success throughout the start of the campaign as he acquired three assists in eight appearances within the Serie A.

With Mourinho’s squad already thin on depth within the central area of the pitch following Georginio Wijnadlum’s long-term injury, it remains to be seen how Roma will adapt to their current circumstances with three vital points at stake Thursday evening.
