In a statement, Italy's top flight confirmed coach Inzaghi would not take charge of Saturday's match in Rome after picking up his fifth booking of the season during Inter's 1-0 win over Juventus at the weekend.

Inter are four points clear of Juve at the top of Serie A after beating their closest title rivals at the San Siro on Sunday.

Roma are in fifth, one point from the Champions League positions, after three straight wins since Daniele De Rossi replaced Jose Mourinho.
