Roma were in action on Monday night when they had a tough away game against Hellas Verona in Italian Serie A.
Fatigue may thus well play the role here, especially if we know that the Romans have a big Derby della Capitale on schedule for Sunday.
It will be interesting to see whether Jose Mourinho will mix up his starting XI for this tie although he knows only a victory would leave the team in the competition.
