This is a direct confrontation for European ambitions, although both run the risk of losing continental competition.

Claudio Ranieri is the interim coach following the dismissal of Eusebio Di Francesco but only managed a point in his last three Serie A games, a 2-2 draw with Fiorentina on Wednesday night.

Davide Santon joined Alessandro Florenzi and Javier Pastore on the treatment table, although Stephan El Shaarawy was back on the bench after injury problems.

Daniele De Rossi returns to the midfield and Kostas Manolas is back from the suspension, but again Robin Olsen is dismissed in favor of Antonio Mirante.

Nicolò Zaniolo was only a substitute against Fiorentina, but now he recovered from this stomach problem.

Schick has the chance to shine in his old hunting lane and hopes that the sight of the Sampdoria shirts can bring back the player that Rome signed almost two years ago.

As for the Blucerchiati, they need to get back on track after a 2-1 loss to Torino midweek, which led them to the overall standings.

Quagliarella remains the Capocannoniere in 21 Serie A goals this season and is supported by Gregoire Defrel (who is on loan from Rome) and Riccardo Saponara.

Bartosz Bereszynski is suspended, with Albin Ekdal, Gianluca Caprari and Edgar Barreto injured.

Lorenzo Tonelli enters for Omar Colley, who had a bruise on his jaw against Torino.
