Roma come into this encounter as the 2nd best team in the league and the best offensive team with 35 goals in 15 games so far with a great offensive line that has been entertaining throughout the season. Roma have only seen 3 games out of their 15 so far with less than 3 goals, which shows your the entertainment value that they provide; however they have also leaked a goal almost every game with 16 goals so far. Roma will rely heavily on the offensive unit of Dzeko, Perotti and Salah who have netted 25 goals among the 3 of them. The supporting cast of Strootman, Nainggolan, El Sharaawy have been also contributing with the goals and also assists for their front line. Salah who has been extremely influential will miss this game due to injury with el Sharaawy expected to take his place.
Milan are looking at being resurgent this season as they have now moved into 3rd spot without this fixture being played also. They have been fairly solid both home and away so far and managed to find the back of the net with some consistency despite the merry go round of attacking strength of Bacca, Suso, Lapadula and Niang. Milan games have also been high scoring this season with an average of 3 goals per game, with 9 out of 15 being over the 3 goal mark. Defensively despite having one of the best young goalkeepers in the world in Donnarumma; the supporting cast has not been able to give him enough support as Milan has conceded goals in 5 out of their last 6 games in Serie A. Milan will know that victory tonight will take them into sole control of 2nd spot; so they will be extremely motivated to take the attack to Roma in this encounter.
Over 2.5 goals
