Roma will be without their starting XI after losing 1-0 at Parma on Sunday.

The game, which featured an early red card for Federico Fazio, saw the hosts suffer a 3-0 loss in front of a home crowd of 21,741.

The Giallorossi also had a 0-0 draw with Udinese on Sunday, while their next game is at home to Atalanta.

Here are five things to look out for on Monday: First leg The winner will have to wait until Sunday to return to the Parma Stadium to face the Gialloros.

This is a crucial fixture for the home side as they are only three points behind the leaders, as they have a game in hand.

Roma are without the services of their two main strikers, and only the return of Stefano Mauri could see them get into the match with the visitors.

If they do manage to pick up the ball in the opening minutes, they could well find themselves facing a strong Udinese side.

Roma’s best chance of opening the scoring would come when they were level with their hosts just before half-time.

The hosts started brightly as the visitors were awarded a free kick.

Alessandro Florenzi took advantage of the slackness of the defence to slot the ball into the path of Diego Godin.

The Italian then raced towards goal with his back to goal, only for the ball to be stopped by a diving Toni Kroos.

It was a poor mistake by the Pescara defender, as the ball hit the wall just as Kroos had crossed the ball past Federico Federico in the box.

As Roma were looking to regain the lead, they were awarded another free kick when Marcelo Brozovic was called into action to clear a shot from Andrea Ranocchia.

A well-worked pass from the Udinese striker resulted in a cross from Andrea Pasquali to Mario Mandzukic, who took it from goal.

A fine finish from the Roma striker gave the visitors the lead in the 55th minute.

Roma responded immediately, with Federico Rossi heading in a neat pass from Mario Mandazzi.

It made it 3-1 to the Giallsini side.

A penalty from Andrea Mandzuki brought a level of urgency to the proceedings, as Roma could only watch as Andrea Pasquinoni scored again in the 71st minute.

The lead lasted just over an hour, as Mandzuka scored from a corner, and the Gialli took the lead again.

Mandzukeli had a clear chance in the 75th minute, but he took a touch from his striker and headed over the crossbar.

The final whistle was met with a loud ‘thud’ as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
