Welcome to our preview of the Serie A fixture between Roma and Fiorentina which will be played in the Olympic Stadium in Rome. The home side began the Italian league season like a steam train, but have floundered in recent weeks, drawing four consecutive league fixtures. Nevertheless, they remain unbeaten in Serie A, and are still in touch with leaders Juventus. Fiorentina had high hopes for this season, and are still reasonably placed, but with a ten point gap between them and leaders Juventus, and a four point gap between Fiorentina and the Champions League places, they need to start winning soon if they are to fulfil their ambitions.

Team and Selection News

Roma have missed the inspirational presence of their talismanic forward Francesco Totti in recent weeks, and though the veteran striker is nearly ready to return from injury, he is unlikely to start here. The rest of the Roma team pretty much picks itself, as their midfield trio of Pjanic, Strootman and de Rossi is outstanding and has done an exceptional job of shielding their midfield this term. Fiorentina are likely to be unchanged from their dramatic 4-3 win over Verona.
