Verona right-back Kevin Ruegg will be missing as he remains injured, while Thomas Henry is nursing a long-term injury.
While Roma will be without Tammy Abraham and Marash Kumbulla who are both set to return from their respective injuries next year.
"I really missed being myself. Last year, I, unfortunately, had a very difficult season. I didn’t have pre-season, I had some injuries," Roma striker Andrea Belotti said after scoring twice against Salernitana.
"For sure, I was never at one hundred percent. This year I started from the beginning and did all of the pre-season without any problems. When I feel one hundred percent, I know I can be of great help. 
"Today, I tried to contribute, but the squad was unable to win. We are deeply disappointed because we have to win.”
Roma claimed a 1-0 win over Verona in their last meeting in Serie A which was on 19 February 2023 at the Stadio Olimpico.
The Yellow and Reds are undefeated against the Wolves in their last three matches in Serie A.
Roma have recorded two wins and one draw against Verona whose last victory over the Yellow and Reds came on 19 September 2021.
