Roma set to recall Heinze for Juve clash - report

The Argentine defender was demoted to the bench for last weekend's clash with Udinese, but lined up alongside Simon Kjaer in training on Thursday
Roma coach Luis Enrique looks set to recall Gabriel Heinze for Sunday night's crucial Serie A clash with league leaders Juventus.

The veteran stopper was dropped to the bench for last weekend's victory over fellow Champions League chasers Udinese, with midfielder Daniel De Rossi dropping back into defence alongside Simon Kjaer.

However, according to the Corriere dello Sport, Heinze was paired with Kjaer during a training game at Liguria on Thursday between the first-team and the reserves.

Going on the respective line-ups, it seems that Aleandro Rosi will get the nod at right-back ahead of Jose Angel, with Taddei set to continue on the opposite side of the back four.

Roma are currently just four points behind third-placed Lazio ahead of this weekend's games. Juventus, meanwhile, top the table by a solitary point from defending champions AC Milan.
