Line-ups: Roma-Siena

Roma have Francesco Totti, Erik Lamela, Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Bogdan Lobont as they welcome strugglers Siena.

Last week the Giallorossi were held to a 1-1 draw at the Olimpico by bottom of the table Pescara and don’t want a repeat. Click here for a match preview.

That result dented their European hopes, while they go into this game without goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, Marquinho, Marquinhos and the suspended Mattia Destro.

Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli gives the nod to Lobont rather than Zdenek Zeman’s favoured shot-stopper Mauro Goicoechea.

Siena are only one point clear of the relegation zone, despite their six-point penalty in the betting scandal, and could achieve a remarkable comeback to survive.

Alessio Sestu and Nicola Pozzi are unavailable, but January signing Innocent Emeghara leads the attack.
