Dzeko doubt for Crotone-Roma

Edin Dzeko is in doubt for Roma’s match against Crotone tomorrow, so Borja Mayoral is expected to start.

It kicks off on Wednesday at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Dzeko is struggling with a slight muscular problem in training.

It is not a serious issue, but considering the packed fixture list and upcoming clashes against Inter and Lazio, the Giallorossi could err on the side of caution.

Borja Mayoral is the natural replacement and would start with support from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Roma made the trip without injured Leonardo Spinazzola, Davide Santon, Pedro Rodriguez, Riccardo Calafiori, Antonio Mirante, Federico Fazio and Nicolò Zaniolo.

Coach Paulo Fonseca did not make the journey to Calabria this afternoon due to gastroenteritis and could well miss the match.
