The Lupi need a single point to be sure to pass the Group C albeit a win in the last home match against Qarabag could even confirm Roma’s leading position in the group.

Di Francesco already stated that a turnover will be necessary to face every competition with the right players. Italian outlet ‘Corriere della Sera’, reported that Juan Jesus should replace one between Manolas and Fazio. Bruno Peres will operate on the right flank also because Florenzi experienced a few physical issues in the derby. El Shaarawy, Defrel, or Gerson will play on the right offensive side. Gonalons should replace De Rossi as a playmaker while Pellegrini could get Strootman‘s or Nainggolan‘s spot in midfield.
