Vucinic (flu) and Pizarro (injury) won't play, so Perrotta will be trequartista behind Totti and Baptista, which is a slow attack.

I predict that the team Spalletti will choose is most probably

Doni; Cassetti, Mexes, Juan, Tonetto; Perrotta, De Rossi, Brighi; Taddei, Baptista; Totti

It is possible Menez will play for Taddei I suppose, I think that would be the best option as he gives us a different option to the res of the team I posted above. However, Spalletti might go for safe, play Taddei for 60 or so and if we need Menez he will bring him on.

A draw is not a terrible result here, as it would most likely mean being in the driving seat going to our last game v Bordeaux (unless Chelsea lose tomorrow)

I never understand this attitude about it being "safe" to play the likes of Taddei over Menez. The point of football is to win by scoring goals and I think we have more chance to do that with Menez than with Taddei.

By that I would mean that Spalletti knows what he gets out of Taddei, where as with Menez its up in the air... I would prefer Menez, but Taddei in form is a good player... unfortunately he isnt.

Ah, OK, I understand. an attack of Taddei or Perrotta, Baptista and Totti looks slow to me. I do not believe we can score a goal like Mirko scored on Sunday with that combination.

I wouldnt mind a 1-0 in the manner of the derby to be honest. A scrappy win would do, we can not take this for granted.

I agree. But alot will depend how we start this match, I just hope we don't give them too much freedom and time.

A performance like last year against Shator Donetsk would be great...

Vucinics fever has gone down, it at this very moment possible he could play tonight. Remains to see if Spalletti will utilize him, and if his fever stays down so he can be utilized.

Hope Spall' won't rush him... I say bench him and maybe sub him in the 2nd half if needed. We need Vucko fit for Viola.

I will play Vuci from the start , he is vital these days and today's game is more important than Viola's game .
