Lecce Vs. AS Roma: Lineups

The lineups are out for the Serie A match between Lecce and AS Roma, and there are minimal surprises. Roma should line up in their regular narrow 4-4-2 diamond setup, while Lecce will probably look to stifle play with a 4-5-1 setup. Francesco Totti is suspended, and Vincenzo Montella still appears to have no place in his first XI for Jeremy Menez. Marco Borriello and Mirko Vucinic will form a strike partnership up top, while David Pizarro gets another start. The Chilean was one of Roma's best players last season, but he was not first choice this year under Claudio Ranieri. 

AS Roma lineup (4-4-2 narrow diamond): Doni; Riise, Mexes, Juan, Cassetti; De Rossi, Pizarro, Perrotta, Taddei; Borriello, Vucinic

Lecce lineup (4-5-1): Rosati; Fabiano, Gustavo, Brivio, Donati; Vives, Olivera, Giacomazzi, Mesbah, Munari; Jeda

Lecce's defense is the worst in Serie A, so it wouldn't be stunning to see the pairing of Borriello and Vucinic get on the score sheet early if they're clicking. Attacking midfielder Ruben Olivera is likely to be Lecce's biggest threat, but he's got his hands full with Pizarro and Daniele De Rossi. His time on the ball will probably be limited.
