Sports Mole previews the Serie A clash between Roma and Hellas Verona.

Roma will be looking to maintain their 100% in Serie A this season when they host Hellas Verona in the Italian league on Saturday.

The team are second in the table, only behind Juventus on goal difference, but needed a late goal to secure a 2-1 win over Parma last time out.

The hosts will be without several of their first-team players, including Daniele de Rossi, who will miss a couple of weeks with a calf injury, joining Juan Iturbe and Davide Astori on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Verona have been in strong form so far this season, sitting fourth in the table after an unbeaten start to the campaign.

The team had to come from behind in their last match though, sharing a 2-2 draw with Genoa in their midweek outing.

Verona have no fresh injury concerns heading into the match, but Emil Hallfredsson and Jacopo Sala are still expected to be absent.
