There are concerns over Paulo Dybala’s fitness ahead of Roma’s Europa League semi-final match with Bayer Leverkusen. The Giallorossi host the Bundesliga side in the first leg on Thursday, but are facing an injury crisis with Chris Smalling, Marash Kumbulla, Diego Llorente and Rick Karsdop all on the sidelines.
Coach Jose Mourinho has managed to recover Gini Wijnaldum and Andrea Belotti ahead of the match, but Il Messaggero report that Paulo Dybala is a slight doubt for the match.
The newspaper outline how the Argentine sat out training yesterday due to a problem with his left ankle, but he aims to be working with the team today.
Despite the news, Mourinho has reportedly been practicing an attacking formation that includes using Belotti and Tammy Abraham together as a backup option.
