Totti out, Pjanic in for Roma

Roma are assured of Miralem Pjanic’s availability for this weekend against Lecce, but not Francesco Totti’s.

Both Giallorosso men were a doubt for the trip to the Stadio Via del Mare this Saturday, Totti for continued struggles with a calf injury, Pjanic for a slight muscle strain.

Where club captain Totti was forced to miss training again today, with his injury ruling him out of being called up to the matchday squad for Week 31, Roma at least welcomed Pjanic back to on-pitch practice.

The Bosnian is in line to be named for the weekend’s match, but even so it is thought likely that he is only to start the game against Serse Cosmi’s relegation-threatened side from the bench.

Totti is one of eight players unavailable to Coach Luis Enrique this weekend.
