Line-ups: Roma-Bologna

Francesco Totti shook off an injury to complete Roma’s trident with Mattia Destro and Erik Lamela against Alberto Gilardino’s Bologna.

The Giallorossi aim to keep the enthusiasm going after their victory away to Inter, though Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is suspended following his red card at San Siro.

Totti shook off an injury in training to partner Destro and Lamela, while Miralem Pjanic is included in a very young midfield.

Federico Balzaretti returns from his thigh strain to start at left-back, but Daniele De Rossi, Michael Bradley, Dodo and Bogdan Lobont are out.

Bologna have lost both their games so far this season and hope Gilardino can break his goal drought, joined by Alessandro Diamanti and Panagiotis Kone.
