Roma v AC Milan Preview

The two clubs have very similar records in the Serie A are currently separated by three points in the league table. AC Milan has a 16-6-4 record with 54 points and AS Roma has a 15-6-5 record with 51 points. Roma’s home record is 11-0-2 while AC Milan’s away form is 7-4-2. A win for Roma would put them tied on points and possibly ahead of Milan (depending on goal difference).

AC Milan have climbed their way back to reach of first place Inter Milan and can’t afford to get no points at Roma. A win for Milan would be ideal and put pressure on Inter Milan who plays Genoa on Sunday. Roma has moved in third place and had a eight point lead over 4th place Palermo. Roma will have most of its top stars for the match but Milan could be without their lead striker, Pato.

It’s an important match for Milan who want to show they are capable of challenging Inter Milan. Can Leonardo lead AC Milan to within one point of Inter Milan with a win on the road or will Roma move back into second place?
