Probable line-ups: Roma vs Lecce

Roma coach Paulo Fonseca is expected to make several changes for his side’s clash against Lecce following their 1-0 win against Gent in the Europa League.

Pau Lopez will retain his position in goal, however Bruno Peres will start at right-back, with Aleksandar Kolarov on the opposite flank.

Chris Smalling is expected to be partnered by Federico Fazio, with Gianluca Mancini dropping to the bench.

Roma’s midfield should consist of Bryan Cristante and Jordan Veretout.
