CdS – Joao Mario favourite to replace Brozovic, Cancelo on bench
Ahead of the derby, Luciano Spalletti has a few selection doubts according to Corriere dello Sport. With Marcelo Brozovic injured, a replacement is required to fill the trequartista role. Joao Mario is the favourite to play but the ideas that Eder being deployed there or another midfielder such as Borja Valero being deployed further up the field can not be dismissed.
Moreover, Joao Cancelo will be part of the squad but will not be granted a starting berth as he returns from a period on the sidelines, instead the Portuguese full back will be on the bench for Sunday’s match.
