-

AC Milan will host AS Roma at the Stadio San Siro on Serie A Matchday 20, and they face a Giallorossi team that are struggling to remain in the places for European qualification.

The Rossoneri comfortably sit in third place on the table with 39 points, six points clear of Fiorentina in fourth and seven clear of Bologna in fifth. They have won three out of their last four matches, and earned a comfortable 3-0 victory against Empoli in their previous game.

Meanwhile, AS Roma are eighth in the Serie A table with 29 points, one place below and one point behind city rivals Lazio, who currently occupy a Europa Conference League spot. The Giallorossi have only won once in the last five rounds, earning a 2-0 victory against Napoli on Matchday 17, and they were held to a 1-1 draw by Atalanta in their latest fixture.

Matches between AC Milan and AS Roma often have a lot of drama, and this encounter should not be any different. The Rossoneri will want to gain ground on Inter and Juventus, and the Giallorossi without the suspended Jose Mourinho on the bench will try and get back into European contention.
