Roma: Fazio recovers from COVID, Smalling out against Cluj

Federico Fazio has reportedly recovered from COVID but has not been included in Roma’s squad list to face Cluj, Chris Smalling is also out with an injury.

The former Tottenham defender has reportedly recovered from Coronavirus and needs to undergo general medical examinations before resuming training with the rest of the team.

Roma’s squad list vs. Cluj:

Goalkeepers: Pau López, Berti, Mirante
Defenders: Karsdorp, Juan Jesus, Bruno Peres, Spinazzola, Calafiori
Midfielders: Cristante, Pellegrini, Villar, Veretout, Diawara, Milanese, Tripi, Mkhitaryan
