Maicon Set for Start vs. Chievo

Brazilian rightback Douglas Maicon is set to return Saturday against Chievo.

The former Inter man hasn’t featured for the Giallorossi since sustaining an injury against Lazio on 9 February. Maicon was given the green light by the Roma medical staff after completing a full week of training without pain in his thigh, which has hampered him throughout the season.

Maicon and Greek Vasilis Torosidis are expected to line-up at rightback and leftback, respectively, against the Venetian club on Saturday.
