Team News: AC Milan
Léo Duarte (Thigh Problems), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Disrupted Calf Muscle) and Mateo Musacchio (Ankle Surgery) will be missing for Milan manager Stefano Pioli.
We are thinking that i Rossoneri could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, utilising Gianluigi Donnarumma, Theo Hernandez, Alessio Romagnoli, Davide Calabria, Andrea Conti, Franck Yannick Kessie, Ismaël Bennacer, Hakan Calhanoglu, Giacomo Bonaventura, Samu Castillejo and Ante Rebic.
Team News: Roma
Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has a number of players out of action. Pau López (Broken wrist) and Nicolò Zaniolo (Fitness) are those who can’t be considered.
From our viewpoint, i Giallorossi will likely utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation, choosing Antonio Mirante, Bruno Peres, Chris Smalling, Roger Ibañez, Aleksandar Kolarov, Amadou Diawara, Jordan Veretout, Carles Pérez, Javier Pastore, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Edin Dzeko.
We envisage that Roma and AC Milan may well end up cancelling each other out here. Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We’re therefore expecting a very close game with a 1-1 score draw at full-time.
