Sabella watched midfielder Lamela and defender Burdisso during Roma's 3-1 loss at Sampdoria on February 10 with the duo helping Roma complete a 1-0 win over Serie A champions Juventus on Saturday.

“They are in good form right now, but their footballing state is not the only factor to consider... their behaviour also counts.”
