Roma vs AC Milan – Preview
With identical points and goal difference in the league standings, the clash at Stadio Olimpico will be crucial for both Italian giants this weeknd.
Roma failed at Atalanta last week and gave Milan the chance to step up and draw level in the table, which Rossoneri took fully advantage by beating Lecce, thanks to a brace by Rafael Leao.
Giallorossi’s shock defeat by Atalanta was a huge blow to their top-four race as they are now fifth in the standings with seven games to go.
A win is mandatory for Jose Mourinho’s men, but the situation is no different for Milan.
Stefano Pioli’s men are depending on the brilliance from Leao who has been enjoying his best scoring season with 12 league goals. Last season champions are improving their recod of just six points from as many games previously, while became UEFA Champions League semifinalist for the first time since 2007.
The title hope has been given up for a long time, because their unstable form had them 22 points adrift of top spot, but a top four place is still at their own fate to decide.
