Probable Roma-Cremonese formations: decision on Wijnaldum made. Mourinho focuses on the Dutchman in midfield, an excellent exclusion.
Today at 18:30 the second day of Serie A officially begins with four matches scheduled. At 18:30 Lazio will face Torino away, while Salernitana after their debut defeat against Roma will look for points at the Dacia Arena against Udinese. Then at 20:45 a candidate to win the Scudetto, Inter, who has an easy commitment on paper against Spezia, will take the field. The Sassuolo-Lecce program closes.
For the Roma match we will have to wait until Monday, the match against Cremonese is one of the two postponements together with Sampdoria-Juventus, with the bianconeri who will then be the next opponents in the league. Coach José Mourinho’s goal is, of course, to get to the clash with the Bianconeri with full points. The starting line-up will be highly competitive against the grigiorossi, with a decision that seems to have been taken with regard to Wijnaldum.
Probable Roma-Cremonese formations: who makes room for Wijnaldum?
According to the Corriere dello Sport and the Gazzetta dello Sport, Wijnaldum will be a confident starter of the match. The doubt is about who will make room for it. According to the Corriere, it will be Cristante, match winner of Salerno. A formation perhaps too unbalanced forward, with Pellegrini and Wijnaldum in the middle, Zaniolo and Dybala on the frontline and Abraham central striker. Cremonese at home, however, could be the right opponent to make a test of this type.
For the Gazzetta dello Sport, Cristante will make room for Wijnaldum, but the Dutchman’s partner would be Matic and not Pellegrini, moved to the trocar with Zaniolo on the bench. Naturally, Mourinho will decide, happy to be spoiled for choice. And it will be even more so if Belotti arrives in attack and a central defender who can represent another valid alternative to Smalling, Mancini, Ibanez and Kumbulla.
