Captain Francesco Totti should be able play in AS Roma's Champions League last-16 second leg against Arsenal on Wednesday even though his knee still hurts after an injury, his personal fitness coach said. "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." Arsenal won the first leg in London 1-0.
