Roma Welcoming Back Multiple Players After Injuries

Roma recovered a few pieces during the break, and there were no new injuries during international duties. Paulo Dybala being called up by Argentina after missing the previous game raised questions, but he watched two friendlies from the stands.

As Corriere dello Sport reports, La Joya will be assessed upon returning, but his problem was minor, and he should be good to go for the Inter clash. The same goes for Lorenzo Pellegrini, who skipped two Nations League games due to muscle fatigue. He practiced on the side last week but will go back into full training in the next couple of days.

Roma also recuperated two backups, Marash Kumbulla and Stephan El Shaarawy, that had sat out multiple matches with thigh injuries. Their returns will allow José Mourinho to rotate more during the upcoming stretch of matches with short turnarounds. In addition, Leonardo Spinazzola and Nicolò Zaniolo perfected their conditioning as they weren’t called up by the Azzurri, the first one by choice.

The Special One won’t be on the bench versus his former team due to a suspension. He will be highly tempted to field all his four best attackers together, but it’ll hinge on how fit Dybala is. Conversely, despite previous optimism, Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to start as he’s not 100 percent. His presence is still a question mark, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs. Instead, Hakan Calhanoglu will be available.

Our Take on the Roma Injuries

The break has gone wildly differently for the top Serie A sides, as the Nerazzurri and Milan lost key pieces, while the Giallorossi and Juventus replenished their squads. A shake-up at the top might be in order in the next few rounds.
