Form Guide

Roma: L, D, W, W, W

Players to Watch

Edin Dzeko

The veteran striker almost left Roma this summer transfer window to join Juventus but somehow the deal did not go through. He has two goals in three games thus far but they both came in the last game against Benevento but also provided an assist in the UEL. He is always a threat and will be a nuisance for Simon Kjaer and Alessio Romagnoli and could change the game.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic has been in fantastic form despite being ruled out for a few weeks with the coronavirus. The striker has four goals in the league and one in the UEL. He will be expected to lead from the front and bag another goal against Roma if Milan hope to continue their streak. He will need to outsmart and outplay Mancini and Ibanez to do so.

Mkhitaryan vs Calhanoglu/Diaz

As has been the case with a number of key games in Serie A, the trequartista who thrives usually wins the game. Mkhitaryan has been stunning but Calhanoglu is having some of the best form of his life (should he return in time). Youngster Diaz has also been impressive but has not had to handle pressure yet. The CAM who can find the key players to unlock the defence will win this game.

Prediction

Milan 2 - 1 Roma
