Luis Enrique's side will be hoping to bounce back from its disappointing defeat to Lecce when the team welcomes the Zebrette to the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.


PROBABLE LINEUPS

ROMA

Stekelenburg
Rosi, Kjaer, Heinze, Jose Angel
Gago, De Rossi, Pjanic
Totti
Bojan, Osvaldo
UDINESE

Handanovic
Coda, Danilo, Domizzi
Pereyra, Pinzi, Pazienza, Asamoah, Armero
Abdi
Di Natale

Roma coach Luis Enrique will be without the services of Juan who is nursing a knee injury, while Fabio Borini has flu-like symptoms and will likely miss Wednesday's encounter.

Miralem Pjanic should receive the nod ahead of Marquinho in midfield, while Francesco Totti returned to training this week after shaking off a calf injury and will play behind Bojan Krkic and Pablo Osvaldo upfront.

Meanwhile, Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin will not be able to call on Antonio Floro Flores, Dusan Basta, Diego Fabbrini and Cristian Battocchio, who are all out injured.

Mehdi Benatia sustained a groin injury on Saturday against Parma and will not be available for selection and will likely be replaced by Andrea Coda.
