Milan are still looking for their first win under their new owners as they take on Roma at the Stadio San Siro on Sunday.

The Rossoneri are in danger of again missing out on a European football spot. Vincenzo Montella’s side have earned just two points from their last three games, and come into this tie having dropped points against Empoli and Crotone. After seemingly turning a corner by fighting back to earn a 2-2 draw against Inter in the Derby della Madonnina, they suffered a major setback by first losing 2-1 to Empoli, and then throwing away valuable points against relegation candidates Crotone.

Still, despite that, they are not totally out of the race for a Europa League spot. Inter and Fiorentina haven’t fared much better, but Milan are not exactly flying high on confidence at the moment. Meanwhile, their upcoming opponents Roma will be desperate to get back on track after a demoralizing loss to Lazio in the Derby della Capitale. The Giallorossi now are just one point ahead of Napoli in the race for a runners-up spot, and should they lose to Milan, they effectively will hand Juventus the Scudetto.

Whilst they have no realistic chance of catching the Bianconeri, the least the Lupi will be looking for is to finish in second in order to avoid the much dreaded play-off. However, they will come into this game with key players Antonio Rudiger and Kevin Strootman suspended, meaning that Luciano Spalletti will have to mix things up in his starting XI.
