Roma could reportedly rest Edin Dzeko against Sampdoria, giving an opportunity to Patrik Schick.
The striker has played more minutes than anyone for the Giallorossi this season, but has scored only two Serie A goals.
It has been suggested in recent games that he looks jaded, and there will be no respite when he goes on international duty with Bosnia.
Therefore, reports Gazzetta dello Sport, Coach Eusebio Di Francesco could give Schick an opportunity from the first minute.
The Czech international has just three goals in 27 games since a big money move from Samp in the summer of 2017.
With Dzeko starting up-front many of his appearances have come on the wing, but on Sunday afternoon he could be given his chance through the middle.
