Roma vs. Milan
October 31, 2021 3:45 pm EDT

Roma is hosting Milan at Stadio Olimpico in a derby match of round 11 in the Italian Serie A. Roma is back on track with 2 games without a loss, but now it’s time to get consistent. Milan is still undefeated in Serie A this season, but they are playing their crucial game in the Champions League next week.

Overall, Roma has had a great start to the season, and they are now in 4th place with 19 points. Offensively, Roma could do a lot better, but 18 scored goals aren’t bad, while defensively, Roma is solid with 10 conceded goals. Pellegrini is Roma’s leading goalscorer with 5 goals, while Veretout added 4 goals. Pellegrini has also added 4 assists. Spinazzola and Smalling are both injured. Roma was playing against Cagliari in their last game earlier this week, and they have had 59% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 85% of accurate passes. Roma has conceded first, in the 52nd minute, but with 2 goals in the last 20 minutes of this game, Roma has deservedly won this game 1-2. I know that Roma doesn’t care much for the Conference League they are playing in next week, which makes me think they won’t rest any players here, and they will go full head-on Milan.

As I’ve mentioned, Milan is still undefeated in Serie A, and they have the same number of points as Napoli. Milan is in second place only because of a slightly worse goals difference. Milan has scored 23 goals so far, but they seem to be struggling lately with that, probably because of all the injuries in the team. Giroud and Leao each have 4 goals to their names, while Hernandez added 3 assists. Earlier this week, Milan was playing against Torino at home, and honestly, it wasn’t their best game. Milan has had 45% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. Good thing Milan’s defense was focused, and the one goal they have scored was enough for a 1-0 win. Milan will be hosting Porto in the Champions League next week, and that is a must-win game for them, otherwise, they can say goodbye to the Champions League, and probably the Europa League. Milan has had some great games this season, they have scored a ton of goals, but they are still winless in the Champions League.

This is one of the biggest derbies in Italy, and I think it will be a good one. Milan is still undefeated on the road, while Roma is undefeated at home. Milan is definitely in better form, but Roma is the home team, and I think they will get on the scoreboard.
