Luis Enrique's rejuvenated side will welcome the Viola to the Eternal City on Wednesday, with the winner advancing to the quarter-finals of the competition
Taddei, Juan, Heinze, Jose Angel
Pjanic, De Rossi, Greco
Lamela, Totti, Bojan
Injuries to defenders Marco Cassetti and Nicolas Burdisso will see Taddei move into a full-back role and Gabriel Heinze partner Juan in central defence. 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.
