Cyril Thereau caused a huge upset when snatching Chievo's victory in the final minute away to a shocked Roma. The Giallorossi were on sparkling form and hoping to continue their march on Europe after a surprise win away to Fiorentina. Bogdan Lobont started just three days after fracturing his nose, as Maarten Stekelenburg is injured and Federico Balzaretti banned. Erik Lamela was rested to test a new strike partnership and 3-4-1-2 system. Chievo were on the fringes of the drop zone, but missed Francesco Acerbi, Sergio Pellissier, Alberto Paloschi and the suspended Luca Rigoni.
