The Serie A leaders welcome back Rodrigo Bentancur from suspension, with Giorgio Chiellini, Medhi Benatia and Sami Khedira also now available after injury.

Juan Cuadrado, Joao Cancelo and Andrea Barzagli remain on the treatment table.

It’s reported Bonucci will be rested for the return of Chiellini, with ex-Roma men Benatia and Wojciech Szczesny stepping in.

Miralem Pjanic completes the trio of former Giallorossi stars.

Paulo Dybala again looks likely to take the trequartista role behind Mario Mandzukic and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Roma are forced to do without Daniele De Rossi, Stephan El Shaarawy, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Ante Coric, while Edin Dzeko is probably not fit enough for a place from the start.

Zaniolo is bumped back to the position of trequartista with Cengiz Under and Florenzi, as the right-back is placed in a more advanced role.
