AS Roma host Salernitana at the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A on Sunday, looking to bounce back from their Europa Conference League setback.

For the second time this season, Bodo/Glimt beat the Giallorossi in Norway, pulling off a 2-1 victory in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.

The defeat was their first in all competitions in 11 games since a 2-0 loss to Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia two months ago.

On the league front, though, Jose Mourinho's side haven't lost in 10 consecutive games, winning six.

This has boosted their top-four ambitions as Roma sit just five points off Juventus in fifth.

Salernitana, back in the top-flight after 23 seasons, have endured a miserable return, sitting rock bottom of the standings with just three wins and 16 points.

The sides clashed for the first time in history during the August reverse when Roma pulled off a stunning 4-0 victory.

A brace from Lorenzo Pellegrini, coupled with goals from Jordan Veretout and Tammy Abraham in the second half, gave the Giallorossi a comfortable win.

Oh yes! 💛❤️We turn it on in the second half - Pellegrini (2), Veretout and Abraham clinch the win tonight!#ASRoma #SalernitanaRoma
