Borriello to get the nod?

Reports in Italy suggest Vincenzo Montella will start Marco Borriello instead of Francesco Totti when Roma play Bologna at the Renato Dall'Ara tonight.

Montella is said to be switching Roma's system back to the 4-2-3-1 formation, which was so successful under Claudio Ranieri's predecessor, Luciano Spalletti.

Totti was the figurehead of that formation, pioneering a strikerless role at its apex.

This morning's La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed he would reprise his old position, but the latest news suggests otherwise.

Radio Radio and Il Corriere dello Sport, the Rome-based newspaper, understands Borriello has got the nod and Totti will be on the bench.

Borriello is Roma's top scorer this season with 14 goals in Serie A.
