AC Milan Women face AS Roma Women in the Coppa Italia final tonight as the Rossonere hunt down their first ever piece of silverware. Maurizio Ganz’s side has not lost to Roma this season and will look to keep that record intact. The Rossonere ended the season on a strange path with draws and a poor scoring record but will need to channel their mid-season performances to finish off the tie early on.

H2H

Roma 0 - 0 Milan

Milan 1 - 0 Roma

Milan 3 - 2 Roma

Roma 0 - 3 Milan

Milan 4 - 1 Roma

Form Guide (all competitions)

Milan: W, D, L, D, D

Roma: W, D, D, L, D

Players to Watch

Valentina Giacinti

A big opportunity for the Rossonere captain and top scorer to pick up her first piece of silver ware and the first for the club ever. She will need to be relentless and clinical tonight as she is often the one to make the difference for us in these games. She scored the winner from the spot in the league earlier in the season and will need to come up clutch for the side once more as a cagey affair is afoot.

Annamaria Serturini

The attacking midfielder has easily been one of the best performers in a Roma side that has underperformed this season and will be a constant threat for Milan. She has the ability to change a game and this should worry Fusetti and co. who have been shaky at times. She has 9 goals this season and Milan to ensure she doesn’t get ton 10.

Veronica Boquete

Vero was brought in for her experience and this will be the stage for her to show her maturity. The midfielder will need to break the lines for the Rossonere and guide her team to silverware. She will need to command the midfield and be able to break away whilst losing the compactness of the unit. She does have an eye for goal but should rather focus on playing in the strikers tomorrow as Roma tend to have a solid defence.

Prediction: Milan 2 - 0 Roma
