Roma have the chance to move back into the Champions League places in Italy's Serie A when they travel to Chievo.

Head coach Eusebio di Francesco welcomes back Juan Jesus from injury while Bryan Cristante and Steven Nzonzi return following suspension.

The Giallorossi have won three and drawn two of their last five Serie A matches but were thrashed 7-1 by Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia.

Chievo, meanwhile, are cut adrift at the bottom of the table having won just one of their 22 games so far this season.

Elsewhere in Europe this evening, struggling Villarreal go to Real Valladolid in Spain's La Liga, Mainz host Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga and Marseille are at Dijon in France's Ligue 1.
