Roma Vs AC Milan
Sports news - Get €5 FreeBet - Roma is looking forward to welcoming the struggling AC Milan to the Stadio Olimpico this Sunday for all the promises to be a lively clash in Serie A. They have gone four games in all the competitions without any home win, while Milan have got the 12th position following a poor beginning to their 2019-20 campaign. Roma entered this campaign with a completely black slate following the supervision of the new manager Paulo Fonseca and the exit of legend Daniele De Rossi. However, their performances, as well as the outcomes seen so far this term, have not reflected meaningful change, with Roma standing on the familiar position of sixth place after eight games.
Maybe this should not come as a surprise, though, since Roma have made nine managerial hirings in as many years, with Luciano Spaletti's tenure between 2005 and 2010 acting as the last time that the club had a manager keep his position for three whole seasons or more. It appears as if Roma players, irrespective of who takes over the dugout, have a way of making life tricky for rivals, with key players like Edin Dzeko, Javier Pastore, Aleksandar Kolarov setting a tone of belligerence and severe discipline.
Moreover, Roma will be particularly fired up on Sunday as they seem to avenge a 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach during which loanee Chris Smalling was incorrectly penalized for the handball in the box in the 94th minute, the ball visibly hitting his face instead. Although Roma is a compact and strong outfit, one question mark regarding their form is the number of matches drawn. They have just tasted defeat once in their last 17 Serie A matches and now the host Milan in what seems like a fascinating contest in which both teams are expected to score well.
