Francesco Totti will face a fitness test on Saturday to ascertain whether he’ll be available for Roma’s trip to Napoli.
The club captain took no part in this morning’s training session amidst reports of a fever and a muscle complaint.
The medical staff will evaluate his condition tomorrow before boss Zdenek Zeman names his squad for the San Paolo visit.
Should Totti not be available, then Zeman could go with a front-three of Erik Lamela, Mattia Destro and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
However, Miralem Pjanic is on stand-by too just in case Osvaldo is not 100 per cent after his missed the trip to America for fitness reasons.
