Milan 2.20, the draw 3.45, Roma 3.05
Where Juventus and Napoli faltered, Milan once again found a way.
Despite playing with 10 men for most of Wednesday’s game against Ajax, the Rossoneri clung on to make it through to the Champions League knock-out phase.
The disparity between this team’s resilience in Europe and its shortcomings domestically remains one of football’s great mysteries. Right now the Rossoneri sit ninth, 22 points behind league leaders Juve.
They will have their hands full against a Roma side who got back to winning ways last weekend, and who expect to have Francesco Totti back from injury.
Miralem Pjanic is suspended for the Giallorossi after picking up a needless second booking in the dying moments of last week’s victory over Fiorentina, but his absence is more than made up for by the captain’s return. Still unbeaten after 15 games, Roma have played much better football in Serie A than Milan this season. Away win.
Best bet: Back Roma to win at 3.95.
