Lamela ready for Roma debut

Maarten Stekelenburg and Erik Lamela are included in the Roma squad to face Lazio this evening.

As is tradition for Luis Enrique, the Coach did not name the players for the game until this morning.

Francesco Totti is out with a thigh strain, but Rodrigo Taddei and Juan are also not included.

However, goalkeeper Stekelenburg is back for the first time since he was knocked unconscious during a clash with Inter defender Lucio last month.

Also in the list is 19-year-old Argentine Lamela, who has finally recovered from the ankle problems he had during the Under-20 World Cup.

This means Lamela could make his debut in a Giallorossi jersey during the derby, which kicks off at 19.45 UK time.

Roma squad: Bojan, Borini, Borriello, Burdisso, Cassetti, Curci, De Rossi, Gago, Heinze, José Angel, Kjaer, Lamela, Osvaldo, Perrotta, Pjanic, Pizarro, Rosi, Stekelenburg
