Roma have Francesco Totti, Daniele De Rossi and Michael Bradley back in the squad to face Sampdoria, but Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is still sidelined.
De Rossi has been out of action since picking up a muscular injury while on international duty with Italy earlier this month.
Bradley returns from surgery, while Totti had been set to miss Sunday’s game with Cagliari, but that fixture was called off due to security fears. Roma were awarded a 3-0 victory. 
Roma squad for Sampdoria: Balzaretti, Bradley, Burdisso, Castan, De Rossi, Destro, Goicoechea, Florenzi, Lamela, Lopez, Marquinho, Marquinhos, Perrotta, Piris, Pjanic, Romagnoli, Stekelenburg, Svedkauskas, Tachtsidis, Taddei, Tallo, Totti
