Mourinho, Roma 2 on the pitch against Monza. The sides change

After the 1-1 draw at Allianz Stadium against Juventusthe Rome takes the field tonight at the Olympic Stadium against Monza to try to earn a victory that would make the Giallorossi fly to 10 points in the standings.


As Il Tempo analyzes, this time we change: against the team coached by Stroppa José Mourinho he seems intent on changing four pawns on his chessboard with respect to the match held last Saturday in Turin. The goal is to breathe those who have almost never stopped and give a chance to the elements of the squad who started between the second lines.

I am sure of a jersey from the first minute Celik and Zalewski, who will play their first game as owners of the season. The former Lille arrived in Trigoria applying for a starting position and, in the half hour played against Juventus, he showed that he has what it takes to try to undermine Karsdorp. Zalewski instead started the season with the handbrake on due to some physical problems, plus the performance of Spinazzola convinced the Special One to field the number 37 always the owner. But the Pole is ready to carve out his space.

A rest should also be Smalling, who did not miss even a minute with Salernitana, Cremonese and Juventus. English will be replaced by Kumbulla. But the changes will mainly concern the initial set-up of midfield and attack. Pellegrini should be moved back to the median, close to one between Cristante and Matic. To fill the hole left by the captain near Dybala and Abraham instead it will be El Shaarawy, who in the first appearances of the season has shown that he is already in top condition. At least initially Belotti will attend the match against Monza from the bench but, if the match progress allows it, he could take the field in front of his new fans for a few minutes.
