Andrea Stramaccioni has to reorganize his team considered the numerous absences: Milito, Castellazzi, Chivu, Gargano, Nagatomo, Palacio, Cassano, Mudingayi and Obi will not be available due to  injuries, while Guarin and Pereira are out due to a disqualification. The coach needs Juan and Alvarez, even if, during the trainee session of yesterday, they have not shown a perfect physical condition. Rocchi will play for sure as only striker in this team that is passing through a difficult period.

Aurelio Andreazzoli declared yesterday that this one will be Mattia Destro’s match. The young player will play for sure together with Francesco Totti. Absent for sure Osvaldo, due to a disqualification. In the midfield Pjanic will be not available, while the presence of Daniele De Rossi is still a doubt. Roma will count also on Marquinhos, that will return regular in the defense.

The match is important to increase the morale of both the teams: Roma and Inter Milan have still the possibility to win this competition and to gain the qualification for 2013-2014 Europe League.
