Roma coach Luis Enrique will likely be without the team's leading scorer Pablo Osvaldo after the striker was stretchered off during Wednesday's training session with a thigh injury. The Spanish boss will have to reshuffle his backline due to injuries to Marco Cassetti and Nicolas Burdisso.

Chievo coach Domenico Di Carlo will be unable to call on defensive midfielder Marco Rigoni who is out through injury.

The veteran striker has three goals to his name this season and will hope to pester Roma’s backline as the visitors look to pull off the upset in the Eternal City at the weekend.
