Team News
Set to host Lecce at the weekend, Roma will once again refresh their starting XI on Thursday, as they continue to fight on two fronts.

Rui Patricio should step aside for cup goalkeeper Mile Svilar, while Andrea Belotti may start up front after scoring his first Europa League goal against HJK last time out in Group C.

Having battled through the clash with Inter, captain Lorenzo Pellegrini is likely to miss out due to an ongoing muscular problem, and Dutch pair Georginio Wijnaldum and Rick Karsdorp remain long-term absentees. However, Marash Kumbulla and Stephan El Shaarawy were back at Jose Mourinho's disposal on Saturday, and both are likely to be involved after being consigned to the bench in Milan.
Roma possible starting lineup:
Svilar; Mancini, Ibanez, Kumbulla; Celik, Cristante, Matic, Spinazzola; Zaniolo; Belotti, Abraham

Real Betis
While Betis forward Juanmi is out of action until after the World Cup due to an ankle injury, chief creator Nabil Fekir could now return to the starting side after a spell on the sidelines.

After making his comeback as a substitute in Vigo, the French midfielder may be ready to support lone striker Borja Iglesias, who has scored six La Liga goals so far this term. Willian Jose is an alternative option for Manuel Pellegrini to consider up front, having found the net twice already in the Europa League.

Forty-one-year-old skipper Joaquin is set for selection on the wing, as he closes in on a century of career appearances in European competition - he currently stands four games short.
Real Betis possible starting lineup:
Bravo; Montoya, Pezzella, Felipe, Moreno; Rodriguez, Carvalho; Henrique, Canales, Joaquin; Iglesias
Prediction: Roma 2-2 Real Betis
