AS Roma are looking to keep up their good form since Christmas and push on for Champions League qualification when they visit Lecce at the Stadio Comunale Via del Mare in Matchday 22 of Serie A on Saturday. The Giallorossi sit in third and could go level on points with second-placed Inter with a win.

Having lost late on against runaway leaders Napoli at the end of January, Roma bounced back with a comfortable 2-0 win over Empoli last weekend, and will fancy their chances in Apulia.

The hosts have enjoyed a positive return to the top flight after winning the Serie B title last season, with their 14th place position putting them far closer in points to the top half than the relegation zone.

Roma coach Jose Mourinho has been boosted by the return to fitness of Georginio Wijnaldum and the Netherlands midfielder could see his first minutes of Serie A action since breaking his leg after his debut in August.

Lecce are without long-term absentee Marin Pongracic, whilst defender Kastriot Dermaku faces a late fitness test.

Lecce predicted XI v AS Roma (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Gallo; Blin, Hjulmand, Gonzalez; Strefezza, Colombo, Di Francesco

AS Roma predicted XI v Lecce (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; El Shaarawy, Cristante, Matic, Zalewski; Pellegrini, Dybala; Abraham
