The Flying Donkeys are without a goal in their last four games, while Luis Enrique's side needs to boost its flagging hopes of finishing in a Champions League qualifying spot.
Sardo, Cesar, Acerbi, Drame
Luciano, Bradley, Hetemaj
Rosi, De Rossi, Heinze, Taddei
Pjanic, Gago, Marquinho
With Nikola Gulan and Davide Moscardelli's seasons already over, while Marco Andreolli and Dario Dainelli require late fitness tests, Chievo coach Domenico Di Carlo should make two changes from the goalless draw with Cagliari on Sunday, as Gennaro Sardo and Perparim Hetemaj look set to feature.
Meanwhile for Roma, Maarten Stekelenburg, Nicolas Burdisso and Juan all remain sidelined, while Erik Lamela and Pablo Osvaldo are banned from participation. Regardless, just one alternation looks set to come to fruition for the visitors as Simon Kjaer is to be dropped for the returning Daniele De Rossi.
