Cagliari will entertain the Giallorossi without the services of Lorenzo Ariaudo, with the former Juventus youth still nursing the back injury that has seen him miss the club's last two encounters, while long term casualties Sebastian Eriksson and Nene will also miss out.
Luis Enrique's Roma will go into Wednesday's clash without long-term absentees Dani Osvaldo and Nicolas Burdisso, with the pair still suffering from a muscle strain and a ligament problem respectively.
However, the capital club could be boosted by the potential return of Daniele De Rossi and Marco Cassetti, and although the duo are unlikely to start the match, they may well make an appearance from the bench.
