AC Milan and Roma will play the next match in Serie A.
AC Milan, in this season, is struggling in defense and attack and currently sits 16th with 12 points in 14 matches (9-5-0). The team has really poor statistics in terms of possession (48%) but has scored 15 goals so far which is a pretty average output for a Serie A team.

Roma, on the other hand, is not doing well in this part of the season and currently sits 8th (14 pts.) with a same number of matches as AC Milan played (14). The team has poor statistics in terms of ball possession (46%) but managed to score 20 goals which is more than AC Milan’s. They play 4-2-3-1 in most matches except against weak teams when they change to 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 formation.
