Roma's Totti likely to return for Arsenal clash

AS Roma captain Francesco Totti looks set to return for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Arsenal.

Roma are down a goal after the Gunners won 1-0 in London in the first leg but the inclusion of Totti is a major bonus for the Italians.

"Francesco will try and train with (the rest of) the squad tomorrow, even though he'll feel pain," Vito Scala was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport's website.

"It's normal to feel pain at this stage. I'm optimistic because I know Francesco and I'm sure he'll grit his teeth and take to the field on Wednesday."
