Roma-Palermo lineups likely: goal to win

Roma today are called to win to take advantage of AC Milan's victory over Juventus staged yesterday at San Siro. By winning the Giallorossi they would reach the Rossoneri in second place. Thus, only two points of detachment from Juventus at the top of the classification would become.

Spalletti must give up injured Perotti but recover Strootman, Florenzi and El Shaarawy who could also start from the first minute tonight at the Olimpico. Here are the latest news on probable Roma-Palermo formations scheduled for tonight (23 October 2019) at 8.45pm.

Rome-Palermo: the probable formations

Spalletti still has some doubts to resolve ahead of tonight's game. The ballots appear to be one for each department.

In defense Florenzi should play from the first minute having recovered after Thursday's Europa League game. If Spalletti does not want to risk it (considering also the midweek commitment against Sassuolo) there will be room for Emerson.


In midfield he should play Walls: in this way Spalletti would grant Strootman a few more days of rest even if the injury seems to have totally recovered.

In attack ballot between The Shaarawy and Iturbe with the former Milan player currently favored over the Paraguayan player. For the rest, no particular surprise with Edin Dzeko as the attack terminal.

Goal second place

Roma have in front of them the glorious possibility of reaching two points from Juventus reaching Milan in second place in the standings. In the next round (Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26), Roma will face Sassuolo while Milan will be engaged against Genoa. Juventus will return to the Juventus Stadium where they will receive Sampdoria.


A victory today would be important to leave room for the pursuers since Turin, Naples and Lazio are just two points behind the Giallorossi.
