Aurelio Andreazzoli's first game in charge of Roma has brought sweeping changes for their Serie A clash against Sampdoria.

Andreazzoli has adopted a 3-5-2 system, with Francesco Totti partnering Pablo Daniel Osvaldo up front and Erik Lamela out wide.

Pedro Obiang returns from suspension for Sampdoria, but Eder is missing due to family issues.
