AS Roma :
AS Roma has recovered from the weak weeks and won the last three matches. Previously, the Romans could not make seven games in a row victorious. In this phase, the captains have lost the Cup and also the championship. Surprisingly, Rome lost the home game in the second round of the Cup against Turin. Dzeko missed a penalty in the 77th minute and Schick’s goal came too late – sealing the Turin’s 2-1 win.
In the championship, the captains at the end of the season will also not be at the top. The distance to Naples is already 16 points. The race for the Scudetto will take the southern Italians with Juventus Turin. The bright spot for Rome could be the Champions League this season. The Italians have surprisingly completed the group stage in first place in Group C. Chelsea and Atletico Madrid were relegated to the rear. AS Roma were assigned a – supposedly – feasible lot for the knockout stages. In the first leg in Ukraine last Wednesday, the Italians took the lead in the first half. After the break, the game changed significantly. The Romans completely lost control of the game. Fred beautifully transformed a free kick into the goal. Only with luck was the result 2-1 for Donetsk. With that the Italians got away with a black eye and got a solid starting position for the second leg. In the upcoming home game, the Romans can rehabilitate directly. AC Milan seems to be the capital city. The last four direct matches won AS Roma clearly. The last defeat occurred in 2015. Thus, the Romans go as a favorite in this match.
Milan has not lost a game this year. Six of the eight games ended the Milanese as winners. In general, the troupe of Genaro Gattuso is better off than at the end of the year. In the championship, the Rossoneri increased steadily. Last weekend’s victory over Sampdoria put them in seventh place in the standings, with Milan tied for the Genoa side. Thus, the Milanese have steered back into the race for the Europa League places. AC Milan is still in the cup as well. In the quarter-finals, city rivals Inter were beaten on penalties. In the semi-final Lazio faces as opponent. The first leg in San Siro ended 0-0 scoreless. The second leg will take place next Wednesday in Rome. Thus, important games against the Roman teams these days for Milan.
Also European ensures – the formerly large – Milan again for headlines. In Group D of the Europa League, the Italians were group winners ahead of AEK Athens, Rijeka and Austria Wien. Ludogorets was awarded for the 1/16 Finals. The first leg in Bulgaria won the Northern Italians 3-0. Cutrone met shortly before the break to 1-0. Switzerland’s Ricardo Rodriguez came on as a substitute in the 60th minute and converted a penalty just four minutes later. The end of this game was played by Borini in added time. With this starting position, Milan started quietly in the second leg and was able to qualify thanks to another 1-0 success for the knockout stages.
