Another chance for Joao Mario this Saturday against Genoa?
After Marcelo Brozovic, another midfielder that could be “regenerated” by Spalletti is Joao Mario. The coach entrusted him with a starting role against Lazio and received excellent response.
“Maybe the Portuguese will get another chance this Saturday against Genoa, this would be a perfect game for him to regain the positive feeling with the fans. The last memory of him was in the Coppa Italia game against Milan where he wasted several chances back in December of 2017. The condition of Nainggolan is unknown and so it will be a duel between Joao Mario and Borja Valero for a starting spot.”
