It’s back to domestic duties for Roma who host a Chievo side still not assured of their place in Serie A next season.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s wounded troops suffered first leg heartache at Anfield on Tuesday night but must now refocus if they are to secure a top four place.

Last time: The teams played out a goalless draw back in December after a heroic performance from Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino. The stopper was the undoubted man of the match, frustrating Edin Dzeko from the first whistle to the last.
Roma v Chievo Predictions and Preview
Following the stunning comeback against Barcelona earlier in the month, Roma hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons after the the humiliating defeat at Anfield, and Di Francesco now has a job on his hands to lift a dejected squad.
For the Giallorossi, the fear is such a bruising loss could impact their league campaign and Daniele De Rossi and company need to find a way of getting over the line this weekend.
Edin Dzeko, one of a small number of players to come away from the opening tie with his head held high, is the 3/1 favourite to open the scoring and the Bosnian will relish the chance to come up against a side who have kept only two clean sheets this calendar year.
Roma are 3/10 to claim a morale boosting victory while a 3-0 scoreline is available at 7/1.
Visitors Chievo currently sit two points above the drop zone, but, crucially, have their fate in their own hands, with showdowns against fellow strugglers Crotone and Chievo still to come. The Flying Donkeys are available at 18/2 to earn a triumph and Rolando Maran should certainly be encouraging his men to go for the jugular because an unlikely success in the Eternal City could be the difference in where the Veneto based outfit play next season.
Both teams to score is 21/20 and should come to fruition if history dictates, as the two clubs have shared a whopping 15 goals from the last four meetings.
One to watch for Roma: Radja Nainggolan is enjoying playing in a more advanced role, developing a fine understanding with Dzeko in the process. The Belgian heartbeat is 17/2 to net last.
One to watch for Chievo: Roberto Inglese leads the way for the Gialloblu this term with nine efforts. The Napoli owned forward is 11/5 to bag anytime during the duel.
Long shot: Roma have struck 14 goals against Chievo across five matches and the expected outcome is another Giallorossi win. However, in the same period, the Flying Donkeys have responded seven times, a figure all the more impressive given their regular battle with the drop and inferior resources. A stubborn performance and 2-2 draw is priced at 25/1.
