Roma vs. Milan: Preview, Predicted Formations, and Odds

John Solano


Predicted Formations


Roma face their toughest test of the new year on Sunday evening when they travel away to face Milan at the San Siro.

The two sides face-off in Milano after both enjoyed a winning return to the pitch midweek, the Rossoneri narrowly defeating Salernitana 2-1 while the Giallorossi enjoyed a 1-0 victory over Bologna.

The fixture will undoubtedly be a huge test for Jose Mourinho’s side as Milan have won all but 1 of their home league fixtures this season. The last time Stefano Pioli’s men dropped points at San Siro was nearly four months ago when they lost to 2-1 to Napoli in mid-September.

However, Mourinho’s team have been excellent on their travels so far this term and Roma are unbeaten in their last five games on the road in the league, winning 4 and drawing 1.

Both coaches will also be dealing with notable absences with Mike Maignan, Alessandro Florenzi, Ante Rebic, Simon Kjaer, Divock Origi, Fodé Ballo-Touré, Rade Krunic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Junior Messias unavailable for the hosts.

Meanwhile, Roma will be without Gini Wijnaldum and Rick Karsdorp, who has been frozen out of the squad after his row with Jose Mourinho.

Kick-off is scheduled for 20.45 CET at the San Siro in Milano.

MILAN (4-2-3-1) Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Tonali, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leão; Giroud

ROMA (3-4-2-1) Rui Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Celik, Cristante, Pellegrini, Zalewski; Dybala, Zaniolo; Abraham
