Jovetic ready to face Roma

Stevan Jovetic is named in the squad for tonight’s fascinating Roma-Fiorentina showdown, although he was a late addition.

The Montenegro international has been out of action for a month due to muscular problems and flew to Germany for specialist tests this week.

He was given the all-clear by doctors and returned to Florence on Friday afternoon.

Because of the amount of travelling involved, Jovetic was given permission to stay home for a few more hours, so he made the trip down to Rome separately from the rest of the Fiorentina squad.

David Pizarro will not be taking part in tonight’s game against his former club, as he is in Chile for the funeral of his sister, who died suddenly this week at the age of 32.

Adem Ljajic, Michele Camporese and Ahmed Hegazy are absent due to injury.

Fiorentina squad for Roma: Aquilani, Borja Valero, Bernardeschi, Cassani, Cuadrado, Della Rocca, El Hamdaoui, Fernandez, Jovetic, Llama, Lupatelli, Migliaccio, Neto, Olivera, Pasqual, Rodriguez, Romulo, Roncaglia, Savic, Seferovic, Tomovic, Toni, Viviano
