Totti could make his comeback after more than a month on the treatment table.
"Francesco has always been the added value for Roma. I am proud to still have an extraordinary rapport with him and every Christmas we exchange gifts. This year he could give me the gift of not playing against Lecce..." joked Di Francesco.
"I will have some very special sensations before the game, of course. I have great memories of the city and the Roma fans. However, once the match kicks off, I will have room in my head only for Lecce.
"We are in good shape at the moment and must now give consistency to our results. The lads have improved a great deal in terms of focus and concentration."
