Team News

  • Except for Marquinho, Zeman has his full squad available and is going to leave some potential starters on the bench.
  • Pjanic is in competition with Florenzi, while Tachtsidis could play in front of the defence instead of De Rossi.
  • Osvaldo is pretty certain to play, while Destro will start on the bench.
  • Pato and Robinho are in transfer talks and Milan are evaluating the offers, therefore the latter may not start in Rome despite his availability.
  • Pazzini should be the main striker with Boateng on his right side, unless Emanuelson plays wide and the international from Ghana acts as false nine.
  • De Sciglio and Constant will play as full-backs leaving Abate and Antonini out.

Prediction

  • Roma just ended their winning streak in a controversial match in Verona, and now they have to face Milan's furious fight back. If they were to lose, they would drop below their opponents in the table.
  • Milan are in pretty good form and can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the European qualification places not far off. The Champions League draw was tough but also a reminder of Milan's fame all around Europe, which could be a useful boost for the league.
  • Allegri knows that his team sometimes struggle in defence, so he may match Zeman's offensive style with a similar approach. El Shaarawy's work rate will be key to cover the full-back's runs on his side and then attack right back in return, while Boateng may be asked to do the same on the other side.

  • milan should lose 7-0

  • match should've ended 4-0, 5-0, maybe even 6-0 to Roma should've never ended in 4-2 Milan's 1st goal oi49.tinypic.com/n2irfn.jpg Milan's 2nd goal sphotos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/150680_512632752091820_1872014886_n.jpg excerpt from goal.com on marquinhos: "The young centre-back responded magnificently to the challenge of shackling Milan's potent forward line, conceding very little space in defence alongside Burdisso. Victim of a RIDICULOUS red card decision that put Roma in trouble"

  • This is what happens when I pick the correct formation. And when DDR is in dead center middle.

  • Has Milan Played Tonight,I have not see them on Field hehehehe Bravo Roma

  • anways. BATTLE OF BEARDS, NOCERINO VS DE ROSSI

  • Samanja is stupid. there is marquinho(S) and marquinh(o). like jacop said

  • @JacopoP thats rlly confusing!

  • milan wins 0-2 or 1-3

  • @samanja they are two different players: Marquinhos and Marquinho (with no "s") ;)

  • 2:2

  • You indicated Marquinho out with Injury yet still made your possible line up..

  • This will be an exciting tactical battle, Roma's physicality will be a problem for Milan unless they can chose the right time to damange, which is something they have been fairly good at this year.

  • are you talkin about the red card? the only stays for coppa italia games. so serie a games he can play. he is only banned 3 games for coppa italia we also could put DDR in the back like during Euro 2012 to pair with marcos. then have taxi in the middle

  • I feel you. I'm down for De Rossi in the middle, hopefully he doesnt slow down the game by holding the ball too long. Zeman used your formation during training, hopefully Osvaldo could actually be part of the game this week.

  • i hope zeman does this formation stek piris burdisso marcos balza bradley DDR pjanic lamela osvaldo totti castan is suspended for yellow cards ddr is the man to make the middle flow and control it.
