Roma had decent start of this campaign but in last nine matches in all competitions they achieved only one victory over Genoa at home 2:0, and dropped at 5th position at the table in league, while in Champions league managed to reach knockout stage despite that they didn't show some impressive performances. Roma will now host Milan in 19th round of Italian Serie A and it won't be easy for them to earn some points here. In previous round Roma divided points with Chievo on the road in very exciting match and despite that they had a lead in the end have failed to save their net and won only one point. Roma now has six points less than league leaders Inter but they must improve their form to reach higher positions and include themselves in title race. They now must go for a victory at all costs in order to get back on the track, Roma showed great attacking skills and after Fiorentina they are 2nd most effective team in league with 35 goals scored, they suffered only three defeats in league but now in last six rounds got four draws. They suffered defeat in last meeting with Milan in previous season and it will be very hard now against Milan who showed significant improving of their form in comparison to a start of this campaign. Defensive midfielder Kevin Strootman and midfielder Salih Ucan (5/0) will stay out of action for this match due to injuries, forward Edin Dzeko (20/5) and midfielder Seydou Keita (9/0) will miss this match due to a suspensions, while forward Mohamed Salah (19/6) and defensive midfielder Daniele De Rossi (18/3) are having problems with minor injuries and their appearances are in doubt.

Milan on the other hand suffered defeat in previous round against Bologna at home 0:1 but despite that bad result they showed improving of their form and managed to climb up to a 7th position. Milan had big ambitions for this season, they have spent large amount of money during last summer on transfers and seems that finally began to pay off. Milan showed decent performances in matches on the road, but it will be very hard now against Roma which is well known as very unpleasant host. Milan so far scored 24 goals and conceded 22 and to achieve some results and include themselves in title race they must show much more than that. Milan now has 11 points less than first placed Inter and must play on very high level to decrease that difference. Milan celebrated in last duel against Roma at home but before that were without victory against them in five duels. They had pretty poor previous few seasons, they ended previous season at 10th position and failed to reach European competitions, now are fully focused on domestic league, they also managed to reach quarter finals of the Italian Cup by eliminating Sampdoria. Milan will for sure give their best here to achieve their first victory in 2016 but to achieve that they must show great performances. Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic can't count on forward Jeremy Menez (1/0) and goalkeeper Diego Lopez (8/0), they will stay out of action due to injuries while forward Mario Balotelli is having problems with slight injuries and his appearance is in doubt.

This will for sure be very interesting clash, both sides must go for a victory and there is a big pressure on them, Roma must try to consolidate their squad and start achieving some results, while Milan is coming here after unexpected defeat and they must try to recoup that negative result, I expect great match and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
