Line-ups: Adriano starts in Verona

Roma field Adriano from the start in their trip to Chievo alongside Mirko Vucinic, as Claudio Ranieri makes big changes.

The Giallorossi must get back on track after their defeat at Palermo, but also rest stars ahead of the crunch Champions League match with Cluj.

John Arne Riise, Aleandro Rosi, Simone Perrotta and Juan are absent, while Daniele De Rossi does make it despite suffering from a stomach upset this week.

Coach Ranieri makes numerous changes to his side, especially in attack, where Adriano gets a very rare start alongside Vucinic.

Francesco Totti, Marco Borriello and Jeremy Menez are all rested at the Bentegodi.

Conditions are very tricky in Verona, where heavy rainfall and snow in the last few days have left the pitch in a muddy state.

The only players missing for the Flying Donkeys are Luciano and Cyril Thereau, so Sergio Pellissier starts with Davide Moscardelli.

Chievo: 28 Sorrentino; 21 Frey, 12 Cesar, 3 Andreolli, 4 Mantovani; 6 Fernandes, 16 Rigoni, 7 Marcolini; 23 Costant; 80 Moscardelli, 31 Pellissier

Chievo bench: 18 Squizzi, 17 Jokic, 20 Sardo, 9 Bentivoglio, 26 Bogliacino, 83 De Paula, 11 Granoche

Roma: 27 Julio Sergio; 77 Cassetti, 5 Mexes, 29 N Burdisso, 3 Castellini; 23 Greco, 16 De Rossi, 33 Brighi; 30 Simplicio; 8 Adriano, 9 Vucinic

Roma bench: 1 Lobont, 2 Cicinho, 7 Pizarro, 11 Taddei, 22 Borriello, 10 Totti, 94 Menez
