AC Milan vs. AS Roma Match Analysis and Prediction

Mid-table Serie A matches are heating up with the top six sides battling for a decent finish. The San Siro stadium sets to come alive this weekend as rivals AC Milan welcomes Roma for the Serie A weekend fixture. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 18:15 GMT.

AC Milan is struggling to get back to elite top six royalty tag in the Serie A. The side is currently eight on the table with 39 points and nine points behind rivals Roma. A win this weekend will elevate the side to Europa football royalty.
