Line-ups: Torino-Roma

Roma have revamped for their trip to Torino, as Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, Erik Lamela and Dodo’ form a new attack.

The Giallorossi are tempted into some changes ahead of Wednesday’s Coppa Italia semi-final against Inter, so Francesco Totti is rested.

Osvaldo and Ivan Piris return from suspension after missing the Derby, as does Federico Balzaretti after injury, while Daniele De Rossi is not risked with an ankle problem.

Dodo’ and Lamela join Osvaldo for a new attack and a very unusual one, as the Brazilian is unaccustomed to this position.

Torino are strong on home turf and can count on Roma youth project Alessio Cerci out wide in their trademark 4-2-4 system.

Valter Birsa and Matteo Brighi are injured with Migjen Basha sitting out a ban, but Giuseppe Vives returns to the squad.

Rolando Bianchi gets a rare start after his last-gasp goal earned a draw in Bologna.

Torino: Gillet; Darmian, Ogbonna, Glik, Masiello; Gazzi, Vives; Cerci, Meggiorini, Bianchi, Santana

Torino bench: Coppola, Di Cesare, Rodriguez, D'Ambrosio, Caceres, Bakic, Stevanovic, Diop, Menga, Barreto, Jonathas

Roma: Stekelenburg; Piris, Burdisso, Castan, Balzaretti; Pjanic, Bradley, Perrotta; Lamela, Osvaldo, Dodò

Roma bench: Goicoechea, Lobont, Marquinhos, Romagnoli, Torosidis, Taddei, Tachtsidis, Marquinho, Florenzi, Lopez, Totti, Destro
