Goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has been left out of Roma's starting XI for the match against Cagliari.
The Dutch shot-topper was on the verge of a move to Fulham yesterday evening, but was asked to stay at the club at the last minute, despite getting on a plane to London.
Mauro Goicoechea will be between the posts, as Zdenek Zeman goes with a front-three of Erik Lamela, Pablo Osvaldo and Francesco Totti.
Roma: Goicoechea; Piris, Marquinhos, Burdisso, Dodò; Bradley, Tachtsidis, Florenzi; Lamela, Osvaldo, Totti
Cagliari: Agazzi; Pisano, Rossettini, Astori, Avelar; Ekdal, Conti, Nainggolan; Thiago Ribeiro, Ibarbo, Sau.
