Sports Mole previews this weekend's Serie A clash between Roma and Chievo.

Roma will attempt to overcome their disappointment of losing to Juventus when they take on Chievo at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday.

Rudi Garcia's side have had an impressive start to the season by winning their first five league matches in Serie A, but their unblemished record was ruined by the Old Lady.

Roma came from behind to take the lead in Turin, but eventually suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of their rivals prior to the international break, which resulted in their first loss of the campaign.

Despite the blow, Roma are favourites to get back on track and snatch all three points at the weekend as they prepare to face a side who have grabbed just one victory so far in the league this season.

Eugenio Corini's side last tasted victory with a 1-0 win over Napoli back on September 14, but since then have recorded three defeats and a draw.

With the visitors desperate to pick up points, Alberto Paloschi and Maxi Lopez are likely to be tasked with providing attacking threat.

For Roma, Kevin Strootman has returned to training following a lengthy injury layoff, but is not expected to be involved at the weekend, while Gervinho is likely to start up front.
