Serie A Preview: Roma v Juventus
The Old Lady travel to the capital hoping to maintain unbeaten record, while the hosts look to end two-game losing streak
By Adam Wheeler
Rosi, De Rossi, Heinze, Taddei
Perrotta, Simplicio, Pjanic
Lichtsteiner, Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini
Pepe, Vidal, Marchisio, Giaccherini
Luis Enrique will be missing several key personnel for the visit of the league leaders, with Juan, Bojan and Fernando Gago all suspended after the trio saw red in last week's defeat to Fiorentina. David Pizarro remains a doubt for the Giallorossi, along with Simon Kjaer, meaning Daniele De Rossi is likely to fill in as a makeshift centre-back.
However Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is in line to return for the hosts following his internal suspension following his clash with Erik Lamela.
The visitors will travel to the capital without former Roma forward Mirko Vucinic, who has been ruled out with the muscle strain sustained in last week's victory over Cesena.
On the plus side for the Old Lady, Andrea Pirlo should make his return following suspension, with the former Milan midfielder expected to sit in behind central partners Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio.

The former Lyon playmaker has impressed in the capital, since signing for the club in the summer, putting in some impressive performances for his new side. The 21 year old is currently leading the assists chart for the Giallorossi, with six already this season, and he will need to be at his creative best, if his side are to overcome the league leaders on Monday night.
The versatile winger has been in excellent form for the Bianconeri in recent weeks, netting three goals in his last four league appearances, and after grabbing the winner at the Stadio Olimpico a few weeks back, he will be hoping for a repeat performance on his return to the capital.
With Luis Enrique's side struggling for form at present, along with the visitors recent record against the Giallorossi, another defeat for the hosts could be on the horizon.
