Serie A line-ups: Torino vs. Roma

by | May 20, 2022 18:34

Roma can only rotate the squad so much ahead of the Conference League Final, but Tammy Abraham and Leonardo Spinazzola start against Torino in a must-win Serie A match.

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

The Giallorossi are torn between two huge demands on this end to their campaign, as the Conference League Final is coming up against Feyenoord in Tirana on Wednesday evening.

However, a win here would guarantee Europa League qualification for next season, without having to wait for Fiorentina and Atalanta results tomorrow.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is out of action, with Chris Smalling, Rick Karsdorp and Nicolò Zaniolo only fit for the bench and not risked ahead of the Final.

Abraham is therefore supported by Lorenzo Pellegrini and Eldor Shomurodov, while Spinazzola starts on the right flank as he continues his return from an Achilles tendon tear during EURO 2020.

Torino could be saying goodbye to Andrea Belotti, whose future is not yet known ahead of the contract running out on June 30.

Josip Brekalo is leaving, as he refused to make the loan permanent from Wolfsburg, while Gleison Bremer and Alessandro Buongiorno are injured, so with a shortage in defence, Ivan Juric surprisingly moves to a 4-3-3 formation.

Torino: Berisha; Ansaldi, Rodriguez, Zima, Aina; Pobega, Ricci, Lukic; Brekalo, Belotti, Praet

Roma: Rui Patricio; Mancini, Kumbulla, Ibanez; Spinazzola, Oliveira, Veretout, Zalewski; Pellegrini, Shomurodov; Abraham
