This is a return to the Stadio Olimpico for Stramaccioni, who developed his career in the Roma youth academy.
"I have many friends in Rome and all my life is there apart from the time I played at Bologna. Even within the Giallorossi I have many friends and people who care for me. I'll never deny that.
"However, tomorrow will be an important game and all the focus will be on the players. I am certain it'll be a wonderful game between teams who play open and attacking football.
"Any predictions for this match? It could be win, lose or draw - it'll be completely unpredictable."
