AC Milan are taking on AS Roma in the Serie A this evening in a six pointer tie that directly bears upon the race for the UEFA Champions League spots. Milan currently sit in second place with 49 points whilst Roma sit in 4th place with 44 points. The big news is that Stefano Pioli is expected to bench the captain Alessio Romagnoli for newcomer Fikayo Tomori in a huge game. Roma will also be without their captain as Edin Dzeko picked up an injury in the mid week. This clash ended 3-3 in the first half of the season but Milan are now in desperate need for a win after a poor string of games.
Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma, Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, Hernandez, Kessie, Tonali, Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic, Ibrahimovic.
