The battle for Champions League qualification heats up when AC Milan travel to the Stadio Olimpico to face AS Roma in Matchday 32 of Serie A on Saturday. The two rivals are level on points, with Milan sitting in fourth place thanks to a superior attacking record.

After a shaky spell of form, Milan have returned to winnings ways and overcame Lecce 2-0 last time out, just days on from booking a place in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Roma, meanwhile, fell to a 3-1 defeat to Atalanta and face a battle to maintain their push for a top four finish, with a series of tough fixtures to come after a clash against the Rossoneri.

AS Roma vs AC Milan: Predicted line-ups

Roma coach Jose Mourinho was cursing his luck in the defeat to Atalanta as his side dropped crucial points and lost key players. Star man Paulo Dybala was left hobbling in Bergamo, and as per La Gazzetta dello Sport, will be evaluated but is unlikely to start against Milan.

With Chris Smalling ruled out through injury, Roma also lost fellow centre-back Diego Llorente against Atalanta, whilst Georginio Wijnaldum and Rick Karsdorp are out of contention.

Milan coach Stefano Pioli is without strikers Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whilst midfielder Tommaso Pobega is a doubt with injury.

Rossoneri quintet Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori, Simon Kjaer, Pobega, and Ante Rebic are all a booking away from suspension, as is Roma midfielder Nemanja Matic.

AS Roma predicted XI vs AC Milan (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Kumbulla, Ibanez; Celik, Cristante, Bove, Zalewski; Solbakken, Pellegrini; Abraham

AC Milan predicted XI vs AS Roma (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Krunic, Tonali; Messias, Diaz, Leao; Rebic
