Probable line-ups: Wolfsberger-Roma

Nikola Kalinic is expected to lead the line for Roma against Austrian side Wolfsberger in the Europa League this evening.

Kalinic has played just 31 minutes of football for Roma since returning to Italy from Atletico Madrid over the summer.

However, he should get a chance up top, replacing Edin Dzeko as the Giallorossi’s lone striker, at Wolfsberger.

The Croatia striker should be supported by Javier Pastore, with Nicolo Zaniolo and Justin Kluivert providing the width.

On the other hand, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan join Diego Perotti and Cengiz Under on the sidelines.

Wolfsberger, meanwhile, thrashed Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 away from home in their first Europa League game.

They have been unstoppable, winning eight straight matches and keeping seven clean sheets, although that run was halted by a 2-2 draw with Swarovski Tirol last weekend.

Wolfsberger (probable): Kofler; Novak, Sollbauer, Rnic, Schmitz; Schmid, Leitgeb, Ritzmaier; Liendl; Weissman, Niangbo

Roma (probable): Pau; Florenzi, Juan Jesus, Fazio, Spinazzola; Diawara, Cristante; Zaniolo, Pastore, Kluivert; Kalinic

Referee: Martins (POR)
