Line-ups: Chievo-Roma

Roma stick with Miralem Pjanic, Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Francesco Totti in their 4-3-3 system against Chievo.

The Giallorossi are on fire after five consecutive wins in all competition, reaching the Coppa Italia Quarter-Finals this week too.

Erik Lamela is back in the side after his injury problems, but only on the bench along with Daniele De Rossi.

Osvaldo was sent off in the Coppa Italia against Atalanta midweek, but his ban will be in that competition rather than Serie A.

Chievo go into this game without Luciano, Kamil Vacek and Nicolas Frey, but have on-form Alberto Paloschi leading the attack.

Although Eugenio Corini’s men have won their last two Serie A outings, they’ve never beaten Roma at the Bentegodi with six draws and four defeats.

Chievo: Sorrentino; Sardo, Dainelli, Andreolli, Dramè; Guana, L Rigoni, Cofie; Hetemaj; Thereau, Paloschi

Chievo bench: Puggioni, Squizzi, Papp, Jokic, Farkas, Cesar, Cruzado, Stoian, M Rigoni, Pellissier,Moscardelli, Di Michele

Roma: Goicoechea; Piris, Marquinhos, Castan, Balzaretti; Bradley, Tachtsidis, Florenzi; Pjanic, Osvaldo, Totti

Roma bench: Stekelenburg, Lobont, Burdisso, Dodò, Romagnoli, De Rossi, Perrotta, Marquinho, Lamela, Lopez, Destro
