Aleksandar Kolarov has been left out of Roma’s squad to face SPAL in Serie A on Saturday, but Diego Perotti is back.
It comes after Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco confirmed he would rest Kolarov, with next week’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Liverpool in mind.
However, Perotti has overcome a calf injury to end his two-game absence, although the forward may be wrapped in cotton wool for the Anfield showdown.
Roma squad for SPAL: Alisson. Lobont, Skorupski; Luca Pellegrini, Juan Jesus, Capradossi, Fazio, Florenzi, Peres, Jonathan Silva, Manolas; Nainggolan, Strootman, Lorenzo Pellegrini, De Rossi, Gonalons, Gerson; Perotti, Dzeko, Schick, Cengiz, Antonucci, El Shaarawy
