Sky Italia via MilanNews.it are reporting that AS Roma will miss two key players in their fixture against AC Milan on Monday night in Serie A. Their defender Gianluca Mancini has tested positive for the coronavirus hence will almost certainly be out of the fixture. On top of that, one of the best performers from last season Chris Smalling who returned to the club from Manchester United is struggling to recover from a knee injury. He has yet to play this season and it does not look like Roma will rush him back into action thus he will also likely miss the game.

Milan have just welcomed back Leo Duarte from being sidelines with the coronavirus, Matteo Gabbia is still out with the coronavirus. Milan are also struggling in the attack with injuries as Ante Rebic is out with a dislocated elbow and Hakan Calhanoglu is out with a sprained ankle.
