Serie A Preview: AC Milan - Roma

Massimiliano Allegri's men failed to progress past Juventus in the semifinal cup clash on Tuesday, but will nonetheless try to resume their winning run when the Lupi come to town.



Bonera, Mexes, Thiago Silva, Mesbah
Aquilani, Van Bommel, Nocerino
Ibrahimovic, El Shaarawy

Taddei, Kjaer, Heinze, Jose Angel
Gago, De Rossi, Pjanic
Borini, Osvaldo

AC Milan has a seemingly endless list of names on the sidelines, as Alexandre Pato, Filippo Inzaghi, Rodney Strasser, Ignazio Abate, Robinho and Flavio Roma, Mathieu Flamini and Antonio Cassano are all out of contention.

With that to contend with, plus the suspension of Luca Antonini, three changes are set to be made from the 2-2 draw with Juventus in the Coppa Italia semifinal second leg on Tuesday, as Daniele Bonera, Mark van Bommel and Antonio Nocerino are waiting in the wings.

Meanwhile Roma is also likely to make minimal alterations from the side that picked up a 1-0 win against Genoa earlier in the week. Miralem Pjanic and Francesco Totti should come into the XI at the expense of Leandro Greco and Erik Lamela.

However, defensive pair Nicolas Burdisso and Juan are not expected to return to fitness until the latter stages of the season.

  • AC Milan has won just two of its last five home games in Serie A despite leading the table.
  • However, it has won five of its last six in the league, including three straight victories without conceding a goal.
  • The Rossoneri have a clear advantage in the head-to-head, winning 70 of the 152 league matches the two have contested, drawing 45 and losing 37.
  • Roma come into the match on the back of two successive victories, having ended a run of consecutive defeats.
  • Its away form is one of the worst in the division, having lost four of its last five games on the road prior to the recent win against Palermo.
  • The Giallorossi won the last time these two teams met at San Siro, as Marco Borriello scored the only goal in a 1-0 win here last season.
