De Rossi and Perrotta banned

Roma's Champions League hopes have been hit by three-match bans handed to Daniele De Rossi and Simone Perrotta.

The two capital players were dismissed on Sunday night at Bari for violent conduct during their thrilling 3-2 victory.

Unless the Giallorossi successfully appeal against the suspensions then De Rossi and Perrotta won't appear in Serie A again this term.

The same applies to Lecce striker David Di Michele and Bari's Kamil Glik who have been punished with three-match stops too because of TV evidence.

Meanwhile, eight players have been halted for just one match and thus they will miss the Week 36 fixtures.

They are: Cristian Ledesma (Lazio), Della Rocca, Mudingayi, Mutarelli (Bologna), Alvarez, Pablo Ledesma (Catania), Cossu (Cagliari), Mariga (Inter).
