Competition: Serie A Date: Sunday 27th November 2016 Venue: Stadio Olimpico Kick-Off: 19:45 GMT
Roma are expected to be without Kostas Manolas and Stephan El Sharaawy, with the duo suffering from muscle injuries.
The absence of Manolas adds to Roma’s defensive worries, with Federico Fazio and Antonio Rudiger set to start.
Pescara’s injury problems in defence are far more significant though, with the club without four central defenders for their trip to Rome.
As a result, Cristiano Biraghi is likely to play out of position.
After being defeated by Atalanta last week, Roma bounced-back to secure top-spot in their Europa League group and will now be looking to close the gap on current leaders Juventus. The Turin giants play first tomorrow but it won’t change Roma’s aims of winning this tie.
Losing their last five league games, Pescara are looking like favourites for relegation and need a swift turn of fortune if they are to keep their place in the top-tier of Italian football. They’ve also failed to score in their last four games, which raises the likelihood of a victory for the hosts tomorrow.
Roma will be favourites for a win and they need to pick-up all three points, as their next three league games see them face Lazio, AC Milan and Juventus.
Szczesny, Peres, Rudiger, Fazio, Jesus, Rossi, Strootman, Salah, Nainggolan, Perotti, Dzeko
Bizzarri, Zampano, Zuparic, Biraghi, Crescenzi, Brugman, Cristante, Memushaj, Aquilani, Benali, Caprari
Pescara have lost five consecutive matches and haven’t found the net in their last four.
Roma have won their last nine Serie A matches at the Stadio Olimpico.
