The Biancocelesti boosted their confidence with a 3-2 Derby della Capitale win over Roma at the weekend, but the defeat to Galatasaray has made Europa League qualification an uphill struggle.

That loss in Turkey was decided by a Thomas Strakosha howler, but the goalkeeper retains the gloves in this competition.

Sarri rotates his squad only to a degree, keeping in big names like Pedro, Felipe Anderson and Immobile, giving Basic his first start.

Lokomotiv Moscow are not to be under-estimated, as they held Olympique Marseille to a 1-1 draw in their opening game.

Fedor Smolov has scored six goals in nine league games so far this season.
