Roma return to action on Sunday, hoping to shake-off their shocking defeat from earlier in the week versus Cremonese.

The Giallorossi host Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico tomorrow evening in a clash that could have important top-four implications. 

Max Allegri’s men travel to Rome fresh off their victory in the Derby della Mole over rivals Torino. After going down early, Juve fought back to draw level on two different occasions before sealing a win in the final twenty minutes. 

The victory extended their winning streak to four and brought them within 12 points of the fourth and final Champions League place following the 15-point deduction levied against them in January.

As for the hosts, Jose Mourinho’s men suffered their worst defeat of the season last Tuesday when they lost to bottom of the table Cremonese, marking their first league win of the campaign. 

The Giallorossi struggled to throughout the clash with several of their key pieces failing to make an impact, captain Lorenzo Pellegrini the most notable of the group.

Though, there was a bit of good news for Roma that emerged 24-hours ahead of kick-off. Jose Mourinho will be available and on the bench for Sunday’s showdown after the club appealed his two-match suspension handed down after he was sent off in last week’s loss. 

The Italian FA suspended the review of the appeal until next week, meaning the Special One can take his usual place on the Giallorossi’s sideline.

Kick-off is scheduled for 20.45 CET at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

ROMA (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Celik, Cristante, Wijnaldum, Spinazzola; Dybala, Pellegrini; Abraham

JUVENTUS (3-5-2): Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Sandro; De Sciglio, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostić; Di Maria, Vlahović
