All you need to know about AC Milan vs Roma

AC Milan can't afford to drop points in the title race

AC Milan picked up 3pts from their last league game away at Empoli in what was an action-packed 90-minutes. Kessie scored twice in the first half and AC Milan lead 2-1 at the break with the second-half following a similar pattern thanks to goals from Florenzi and Hernandez which put the visitors 4-1 up before a late penalty for Empoli made the final scoreline 4-2. AC Milan remain 4pts behind the league leaders heading into this week's clash with Roma and can't afford to drop many more points in the race for the Serie A title.

AC Milan Predicted Lineup: Maignan, Florenzi, Romagnoli, Tomori, Hernández, Kessié, Bennacer, Saelemaekers, Tonali, Giroud & Messias

Roma had the home advantage against Sampdoria but failed to make it count as the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Neither side could find a breakthrough in the first half but when Shomurodov put Roma 1-0 up in the 72nd-minute, the home fans must have thought that their team would go on to win the game. However, Gabbiadini continued his excellent run of form in front of goal by scoring an equaliser for Sampdoria with just 10-minutes left on the clock.

Roma Predicted Lineup: Patrício, Smalling, Karsdorp, Mancini, Viña, Ibañez, Mkhitaryan, Veretout, Cristante, Zaniolo & Afena-Gyan

Team News

AC Milan: Tatarusanu, Pellegri, Kjær and Plizzari could all miss out on Thursday.
