After the success in the Europa League, the Italian representatives of Roma and Milan will continue with their obligations in the domestic championship with a duel scheduled for Sunday, and the Roman club welcomes the derby of the 24th round with an unresolved question of the striker.
After eliminating the Red Star from the Europa League, Milan will return to their obligations in the Apennines on Sunday, and a new challenge for the Rossoneri will be the visit of the Roma. Like the next rival in the championship, Roma welcomes the match after the European challenge, overwhelmed by the success achieved against Braga, however, a touch of bitterness in the sweet taste of victory (3: 1) over the Portuguese representative was left by Edin Dzeko's injury.
The experienced center forward opened the duel in Rome with the leading goal, but in the 67th minute, he suffered a groin injury due to which he was forcibly replaced. Dzeko is perhaps the most important player of Roma and it will be very difficult for Roma without their captain
The place in the team was taken by Mayoral instead of the player of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the replaced striker immediately ended up on medical examinations.
Although the official report on the issue of the injury has not been announced yet, the Italian media claim that Dzeko is under a big question mark for the match with Milan and that he will almost certainly not be among the starters, which would be a significant misfortune for the host.
Let us remind you, Dzeko was in the second plan because of coach Fonseca in January due to disagreements, but in the February challenges, he was returned to the competition and was the starter in both duels with Braga in which he scored a goal.
If Dzeko does not have the opportunity to be on the grass of the Olympics from the first referee's whistle, it is certain that his place will be taken by Borja Myjoral, who replaced him yesterday, which is not a bad option for Fonseca, considering that the Spanish striker scored two goals in the previous three matches of Roma.
In addition, Mayoral has shown in previous games that he is a very good striker, and that he just needs time to show his full potential. Maybe right now he has a chance to use Dzeko's injury to show how much he can do in a Roma jersey.
