Probable line-ups: Roma-Liverpool

Roma are expected to us a 4-3-3 formation with Patrik Schick and Stephan El Shaarawy flanking Edin Dzeko in the Champions League semi-final with Liverpool.

The first leg ended 5-2 to the Reds and the decider is at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday evening.

Eusebio Di Francesco used a three-man defence for the 3-0 victory over Barcelona in the quarter-final, but that same system proved terribly naïve at Anfield.

According to multiple sources, the tactics will be closer to the traditional 4-3-3 tomorrow night.

Some adjustments are forced, because Kevin Strootman, Diego Perotti and Gregoire Defrel are out injured.

Lorenzo Pellegrini should step in for Strootman, joining Daniele De Rossi and Radja Nainggolan, while Juan Jesus is benched after his dismal performance in the first leg.

There are several changes in attack, where Schick and El Shaarawy are finding their form and confidence again following Saturday’s 4-1 win over Chievo.

El Shaarawy is preferred to Cengiz Under and Schick has found the net in his last two Serie A appearances.

Dzeko, as always, leads the front line.

Liverpool have Emre Can, Joe Gomez, Adam Lallana, Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out of action, but Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold available again.

Mohamed Salah will relish the opportunity to play at the Stadio Olimpico again after leaving Roma last summer, joined upfront by Roberto Firmino.

Roma have not conceded a single home goal in the Champions League this season.
