Roma will face Inter on Sunday but coach Di Francesco is forced to play many young talents due to injuries.
When the Roma sporting director Monchi had planned the summer transfer window, he couldn’t have imagined that all his new young purchases would have been fundamental to Di Francesco’s roster.
On Sunday, Roma will face his former coach Luciano Spalletti at the Stadio Olimpico. Although Radja Nainggolan will probably be unavailable for that match, an experienced side will challenge a group of talented but very young players.
EDF will be forced to play Zaniolo, Kluivert, Ünder, and Schick altogether due to the multiple injuries his team has suffered in the past few weeks.
81 years in four for the Roma offensive players. Zaniolo (19) should replace Pellegrini as a trequartista. The Dutch prodigy (19), instead, should be playing on the left flank due to El Shaarawy‘s unavailability. Cengiz Ünder (21) will be confirmed on the right side while Patrick Schick (22) will be the striker in substitution of Dzeko.
It will be very interesting to see them playing together at the same time. The Roma youngsters are now in charge and Di Francesco can only rely on his boys.
