AC Milan vs Roma 02/10/2017
A mini crisis is brewing at AC Milan following their second league defeat of the season last weekend. They lost 2-0 to Sampdoria last weekend, which has not given much justice to their massive spending of almost 200m euros. Throw in the news that Carlo Ancelotti is a free man following his sacking as Bayern Munich manager, and you tend to worry for Vincenzo Montella.
Roma have shaken off a lazy start and have notched up three league wins on the bounce, but the quality of their opposition is not quite top grade. While Roma can count on Edin Dzeko, who has five goals from his last three league turnouts, there’s no one that can hold the fort for Milan. Both teams have found the net in five of the last six corresponding fixtures here at San Siro.
