Top marksman

While Alvaro Morata could be available, Paulo Dybala has no chance of returning from a thigh injury. The pair’s absences could prove key for this fixture. Lorenzo Pellegrini has managed to hit the target 4 times in the last half dozen matches for Roma. It is probably safe to say that they will both be looking to add to their total here once again.
