Likely lineups

Jose Mourinho’s Roma will play for access to the Europa League round of 16 against Bulgarian outfit Ludogorets. The two sides have both earned seven points in their first five group matches, and on Thursday evening, November 3, it will be discovered who will advance to the next stage.

The Portuguese coach will be able to count on a rediscovered Nicolò Zaniolo, who, after returning to goal against Hellas Verona, had his three-day disqualification handed to him after being sent off in the home loss to Real Betis reduced. However, he weighs the bruise he received against the Venetians in the Week 12 Serie A post-match. Also in contention for a starting spot is youngster Cristian Volpato.

Probable formations.

ROME (3-4-1-2): Rui Patricio; Kumbulla, Smalling, Ibanez; Karsdorp, Cristante, Camara, El Shaarawy; Pellegrini; Belotti, Abraham. All: Mourinho

LUDOGORETS (4-2-3-1): Padt; Witry, Verdon, Nedyalkov, Cicinho; Piotrowski, Pedrinho; Tekpetey, Cauly, Rick; Thiago. All. gencev.
