Match Preview

Totti a huge concern for Roma Roma face two huge challenges in the space of five days this week and captain Francesco Totti is doubtful for both. The Italians visit Basle knowing anything other than victory will severely dent their chances of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League, while this weekend they take on bitter rivals Lazio in Serie A. Totti, who was sent off in Saturday's 2-0 win over Lecce, is set to miss the Rome derby through suspension. To complicate matters for Roma coach Claudio Ranieri, Totti is fighting against the clock to recover from a shoulder injury sustained at the weekend. "I really don't want to sit out the game against Basle," said Totti. "More so, considering that I will probably be out for the Sunday's derby, which is a very important game for me. "I will do everything possible to recover and play against Basle." Roma are ninth in the Serie A standings after nine matches and bottom of Group E in Europe after one win and two losses. Ranieri is optimistic heading into both games. "It's going to be a delicate game against Basle," he said. "But the team is serene and fighting to turn the corner. "We head into the encounter having kept a clean sheet for our second consecutive game and I am happy that we have taken seven points in our last three league games." Ranieri will be without defenders Philippe Mexes and Matteo Brighi, with the former out with the flu and the latter injured. Roma have never won on Swiss soil and Basle will fancy their chances of taking a positive result at the St Jakob-Park stadium. Thorsten Fink's men will be looking to pick up where they left off in their 3-1 win over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico last month. The result lifted Basle to second in Group E, level on three points with Roma and Cluj. Basle used the victory as a launchpad for a good run in the domestic league. They claimed 3-1 wins over St Gallen and Bellinzona to climb to the top of the Swiss Super League, their position heading into Wednesday's match. Basle have rewarded Fink with a two-year contract extension that will keep him tied to the club until June 2013.

Match Report

Roma boost Champions League hopes Roma moved up to second in Group E of the Champions League with a hard-fought 3-2 victory away at Basle. The Italian outfit secured a 2-0 lead through Jeremy Menez (16) and Francesco Totti's 26th-minute penalty. The hosts deservedly hit back in an entertaining clash through Alexander Frei's close-range header after 69 minutes, but Roma restored their two-goal cushion seven minutes later through substitute Leandro Greco. Basle refused to throw in the towel and Xherdan Shaqiri made it 3-2 on 82 minutes with a smart finish, but Roma held on for the win. The Italian side had the first chance after just three minutes when Mirko Vucinic set up Menez to fire just over the bar from a narrow angle. But Basle should have taken the lead on 11 minutes when Valentin Stocker headed down to Benjamin Huggel just six yards out. He controlled the ball on his chest and struck a left-footed shot towards the bottom corner, but Roma goalkeeper Julio Sergio pulled off a superb reaction save. Somewhat against the run of play Roma took the lead on 16 minutes when Menez pounced on a loose ball to sidefoot home into the bottom corner. And the same player almost repeated the trick moments later only to fire wide as he looked to be clipped from behind by Huggel. Roma did not have to wait long to double their lead however, John Arne Riise being brought down just inside the area by Stocker and Totti converting the penalty despite goalkeeper Franco Costanzo guessing the right way and getting two hands to the ball. Basle could count themselves unfortunate to be two goals down and came out in determined fashion in the second half, with David Abraham firing a curling effort just inches over the bar. And they got back into the game on 68 minutes when Stocker's cross from the left flicked off the head of Nicolas Burdisso at the near post to allow Frei to head home from three yards. Marco Streller then hammered a shot against the post as Basle threatened once more, but Roma went straight down the other end and Greco fired home from 12 yards after Marco Borriello dived to try to win a penalty. Xherdan Shaqiri pulled a goal back with a superb left-footed finish into the bottom corner on 82 minutes, but Basle could not find an equaliser and ended the game with 10 men after Stocker was shown a second yellow card in the closing minutes for a foul on Totti.
