Between the weather alert and the nightmare of accidents, two new things are seen on the horizon as regards the Rome. It is about Kalinic is Shepherd, so far never seen since the first minute in the league, and at this point authoritative candidates for a token against the Sampdoria. Fonseca – emphasizes the Corriere dello Sport – prepares the number 17 and 18 holders to try to overcome the Genoa trap, hoping that they will work better than the unlucky Graz experiment in the Europa League.
Kalinic or Dzeko? – Kalinic has been working intensively for a week, in Trigoria, with the idea that his time has come. In reality Fonseca and the doctors of Rome have not yet lost the hopes of recovering Dzeko, but the chances that the first one will play against Sampdoria grow.
At least 60 minutes – The situation of Pastore is slightly different, having had the usual calf problem during the summer but through a more rational management of the neuromuscular resources he avoided to lengthen the list of the injured of the team. Fonseca used him as a starter in both European matches, receiving in both cases fluctuating but not completely negative answers. Now, with 17 days without competitive stress behind him, Pastore is in the ideal position to play at least 60 minutes. If the indications were to be confirmed, the trident of midfielders will be completed by Kluivert and Zaniolo.
