Line-ups: Roma-Parma

Roma have Francesco Totti, Fabio Borini and the returning Pablo Daniel Osvaldo for their match against Sebastian Giovinco’s Parma this afternoon.

The Giallorossi must do without the suspended Simon Kjaer and injured Nicolas Burdisso, but have Osvaldo back in the starting XI for the first time since he suffered that thigh strain two months ago.

January signing Marquinho is on the bench and could well receive his Roma debut in this match, but surprisingly Erik Lamela is not in the starting line-up.

Parma miss Gabriel Paletta in defence, so Stefano Ferrario steps in to the back three.

The big danger is Giovinco in attack, who is partnered by Raffaele Palladino, but Stefano Okaka is on loan from Roma and could come off the bench.

Roma: Stekelenburg; Rosi, Juan, Heinze, Taddei; Gago, De Rossi, Pjanic; Borini, Totti, Osvaldo

Roma bench: Curci, Cassetti, José Angel, Marquinho, Perrotta, Lamela, Bojan

Parma: Mirante; Ferrario, A Lucarelli, Zaccardo; Jonathan, Mariga, Gobbi, Morrone, Musacci; Giovinco, Palladino

Parma bench: Pavarini, Santacroce, Gobbi, Biabiany, Modesto, Valdes, Okaka
