The battle for Champions League qualification reaches boiling point as AS Roma welcome Inter to the Stadio Olimpico in Matchday 34 of Serie A on Saturday. The Nerazzurri are in fourth place but sit just two points clear of the Lupi in seventh.
Roma have struggled for domestic form recently, having picked up just two points from their last three games and a 1-1 draw against Monza last time out compounded their growing injury crisis.
Inter, on the other hand, have no such worries and comprehensively overcame Hellas Verona in a 6-0 win in midweek, just days after beating Lazio 3-1. The Biscione are in control in the race for fourth and would go some way to cementing a place in the Champions League with victory in Rome.
AS Roma vs Inter: Predicted line-ups
As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma coach Jose Mourinho is short of options as he comes up against his former club, with Chris Smalling, Diego Llorente, Marash Kumbulla, and Rick Karsdorp are all out.
In addition, Stephan El Shaarawy picked up a knock against Monza and is ruled out, whilst Andrea Belotti remains unavailable. Mehmet Zeki Celik is suspended after a red card last time out, and Roger Ibanez is one booking away from a ban.
Inter coach Simone Inzaghi has an almost full-strength squad to choose from, with Milan Skriniar and Robin Gosens the only absentees.
Ex-Roma midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be suspended if he picks up a yellow card, whilst Francesco Acerbi and Denzel Dumfries are in the same position.
