Probable line-ups: Benevento vs. Roma

Probable line-ups: Benevento vs. Roma

Paulo Fonseca is dealing with an injury-hit Roma defence and could start Federico Fazio, Gianluca Mancini and Leonardo Spinazzola in a three-man backline against Benevento today.

Fazio has five appearances in Europa League so far this season, but hasn’t played a Serie A match yet.

Paulo Fonseca could give him a chance against Benevento today as Roma have Chris Smalling, Roger Ibanez and Marash Kumbulla injured.

The same is true of Bryan Cristante who, at times, has been deployed as a centre-back this season.

Leonardo Spinazzola is expected to start in Roma’s three-man defence along with Fazio and Gianluca Mancini.

Borja Mayoral is likely to stat ahead of Edin Dzeko with Lorenzo Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan behind him.

Probable line-ups: Benevento vs. Roma

Benevento (4-3-2-1): Montipò; Depaoli, Tuia, Glik, Barba; Ionita, Schiattarella, Hetemaj; Viola, Caprari; Lapadula.

Roma (3-4-2-1): Pau Lopez; Mancini, Fazio, Spinazzola; Karsdorp, Villar, Veretout, Peres; Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan; Mayoral
