Strong Roma Selection For CSKA Sofia Europa League Match

'The Tinkerman' is counting on his best players to gather three points at the Stadio Olimpico...
Roma coach Claudio Ranieri has named his 20-man squad for the Europa League match against CSKA Sofia on Thursday evening, as reported by forzaroma.info.

The Giallorossi are desperate for a positive result after suffering a shock 2-0 loss to Basel two weeks ago, which has left them at the bottom of Group E.

Key players Rodrigo Taddei and Philippe Mexes will miss out through injury. Talismanic captain Francesco Totti is expected to pull the strings in attack again, probably alongside Mirko Vucinic.

Brazilian full-back Cicinho could make his return to the starting XI after missing several months with a knee injury.

The full squad is listed below.

Goalkeepers: Doni, Lobont, Julio Sergio

Defenders: Andreolli, Burdisso, Cicinho, Juan, Motta, Riise, Tonetto

Midfielders: De Rossi, Perrotta, Pizarro, Menez, Guberti, Greco

Strikers:
Cerci, Totti, Vucinic, Okaka
