Torosidis to get Roma debut

Vasilis Torosidis receives his first call-up for Roma, but there is a striker shortage going into the lunch-time kick-off with Bologna.

The Giallorossi begin the Sunday action at the Stadio Dall’Ara at 11.30am GMT. Click here for a match preview.

Mattia Destro and Daniele De Rossi are out injured, while Erik Lamela is suspended and Nico Lopez on international duty.

Destro is a huge blow, as he has damaged the meniscus in his knee and could be out for anything up to two months.

New signing Torosidis is thrown straight into the deep end with a place in the squad travelling to Bologna just days after completing his transfer from Olympiacos.

Roma squad: Balzaretti, Bradley, Burdisso, Castan, Dodò, Florenzi, Goicoechea, Lobont, Lucca, Marquinho, Marquinhos, Osvaldo, Piris, Pjanic, Romagnoli, Stekelenburg, Tachtsidis, Taddei, Torosidis, Totti
