Luis Enrique's rejuvenated side will welcome the Viola to the Eternal City on Wednesday, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals of the competition.


PROBABLE LINE-UPS

ROMA


Stekelenburg
Taddei, Juan, Heinze, Jose Angel
Pjanic, De Rossi, Greco
Lamela, Totti, Bojan


FIORENTINA



Boruc
Gamberini, Natali, Nastasic
Cassani, Lazzari, Montolivo, Kharja, Vargas

Jovetic, Ljajic


Injuries to defenders Marco Cassetti and Nicolas Burdisso will see Taddei move into a full-back role and Gabriel Heinze partner Juan in central defense. Leading scorer Pablo Osvaldo will likely miss the match with a thigh injury he sustained in training last week.

Fiorentina coach Delio Rossi could rest Valon Behrami after the Switzerland international picked up a knock at the weekend, while Khouma Babacar is still not yet ready to feature for the Viola.
