Florenzi out of Roma squad

Alessandro Florenzi has been left out of the Roma squad for tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.

The Giallorossi need only a point in Madrid to secure their place in the Last 16, while they’ll win the group if they win and Chelsea don’t beat Qarabag.

Today Coach Eusebio Di Francesco has named his squad, with Florenzi not travelling with the rest of the squad.

The Italian international had to be substituted during the Derby della Capitale win over Lazio, with a slight inflammation on his right knee.

Florenzi has been training separately this week, and Di Francesco has decided not to risk him at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The squad is otherwise largely as expected, with Bruno Peres back in after replacing Florenzi in the derby.

Patrik Schick is still out.

Roma squad to face Atletico Madrid: Alisson, Skorupski, Romagnoli, Juan Jesus, Kolarov, Moreno, Fazio, Bruno Peres, Manolas, Radja Nainggolan, Strootman, Pellegrini, De Rossi, Gonalons, Gerson, Perotti, Dzeko, Under, Defrel, El Shaarawy
