Line-ups: Roma-Catania

Roma welcome back Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and use Marquinho at left-back as they take on Vincenzo Montella’s high-flying Catania.

This could well be Luis Enrique’s final game at the Stadio Olimpico, as he has refused to confirm or deny whether he’ll leave at the end of the season.

Osvaldo and Erik Lamela return from suspension, although only the Italian is in the starting XI, but Aleandro Rosi, Marten Stekelenburg, Nicolas Burdisso, Juan and Marco Cassetti are unavailable.

Marquinho is re-routed from the left midfield to the new role of left-back, allowing Fernando Gago and Miralem Pjanic to flank Daniele De Rossi.

Roma are out of the running for a Champions League spot, but must now battle to secure Europa League qualification.

Catania have Nicolas Spolli out on a ban, joining the injured Ciro Capuano, David Suazo, Alessandro Potenza and Cristian Llama.

This is a very familiar stadium for Elefantini boss Montella, who was here as both a player and a Coach.

Roma: Lobont; Taddei, Kjaer, Heinze, Marquinho; Gago, De Rossi, Pjanic; Borini, Totti, Osvaldo

Roma bench: Curci, Perrotta, Greco, Simplicio, Bojan, Lamela, Tallo

Catania: Carrizo; Motta, Legrottaglie, Bellusci, Marchese; Izco, Lodi, Almiron; Bergessio, Gomez, Barrientos

Catania bench: Terracciano, Capuano, Seymour, Calapai, Ricchiuti, Catellani, Lanzafame
