Europa League, all the numbers of Milan Rome

European night for the Italians, the only ones still in the running. In the Conference League there is the Fiorentina, who will face Vitkoria Plzen at 6.45pm. In the Europa League, however, there are the tastiest challenges: Liverpool Atalanta and the Italian derby between Milan and Rome.

A clash certainly not positive for the purposes of the UEFA ranking which could establish fifth place in the Champions League for the Italians. A clash that however brings with it dreams, expectations, crossroads. Daniele De Rossi and Stefano Pioli said it in the press conference. The fans know this, as they approach this challenge with obviously different moods.

Head to head talks about Rossoneri

Thank God tomorrow there won’t be a ranking burden, an advantage to recover. They are two different competitions. If in recent years they have scored more points than us it should be recognized as a universal value”. He’s honest Daniele De Rossi when he speaks in front of cameras and journalists. He knows well, deep down, that the match between Milan and Roma sees the Devils as favourites. This is said by the numbers of the moment (the Rossoneri team is in a period of 7 consecutive victories) but above all those of the past.

In fact, to find Roma’s last victory you have to go back almost 5 years, toOctober 2019. 2 to 1 at the end of that match, with goals from Theo Hernandez on the one hand and of Edin Dzeko e Nicolò Zaniolo on the other. Pioli was already on the Milan bench, while Fonseca was on the Roma bench. Only Mancini, Smalling and Spinazzola remained from that team. Since 2019, however, he has only collected Milan 6 wins and 3 draws.

The latest from the fields

Two disqualified on each side, Tomori for Milan e I’m sorry for Rome. Main doubts for Pioli, who will have to choose between Gabbia, Kjaer and Thiaw for the rearguard, while the midfield should be entrusted to Bennacer and Reijnders. In front, however, there are no doubts: Rafa Leao, Pulisic and Loftus Cheek are ready behind Giroud.

Some doubts also for Daniele De Rossi, who in the conference, between the lines, made it clear that Smalling will sit on the bench. Central pair therefore composed of Mancini e Llorente, who both come from an excellent derby. Doubts on the lanes with the runoffs between Spinazzola and Angelino and Celik and Karsdorp. Obvious moves instead in the middle of the field (Pellegrini with Cristante and Paredes) and in front (with Lukaku, Dybala and El Shaarawy). The right names to question Milan’s supremacy.
