Luis Enrique welcomes back Daniele De Rossi to the Roma squad for Tuesday’s trip to Verona, but has to make do without a couple of defensive enforcements.
De Rossi has been named in the matchday group to travel north to face Chievo this midweek after serving a ban, but will not be joined by Maarten Stekelenburg or Aleandro Rosi.
Goalkeeper Stekelenburg has been struggling in recent days with a left shoulder injury that ruled him out of the weekend match with Napoli and the Corriere dello Sport suggested may keep him out for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, Rosi misses out after pulling out of Monday afternoon’s training session with a problem to his left ankle, thought the result of a knock sustained to it during the weekend’s game.
Roma squad to face Chievo: Lobont, Curci, Pigliacelli, Cicinho, Josè Angel, Heinze, Kjaer, Taddei, Marquinho, Pjanic, De Rossi, Gago, Perrotta, Greco, Simplicio, Viviani, Totti, Bojan, Tallo, Borini, Piscitella.
