Roma Can End Milan’s European Hopes

AS Roma are looking to secure second spot in the league and they can continue their good work with a win over AC Milan this weekend. They travel to Milan and a win would not only help them claim second but also prevent AC Milan from playing European football next season. Roma will not be able to catch Juventus at the top of the table but are just one point ahead of Napoli who are in third and chasing them down. AC Milan are five points away from European football right now and with just four games to go, they can’t afford to lose this one.

Roma lost at home to Lazio last time in a game that all but ended their title hopes. However, away from home, they have been impressive, winning their last five away games. They have scored 13 goals in those four games so they clearly know how to find the back of the net away from home. They will want to secure second place, come here in good form on the road and look capable of beating Milan.

AC Milan are on the brink of failing to qualify for European football through their league position. They have four games to overcome a five-point deficit and their chance will pretty much be gone unless they win this. A home loss to Empoli recently put a huge dent in their hopes and it is vital they bounce back. They have won just once of their last five, and if they fail to qualify for Europe, they only have themselves to blame.

Roma have played well all season and deserve second place, they can take another step towards securing it here with an away win against AC Milan. While Milan are desperate, they have struggled recently and look to be there for the taking for Roma this weekend.
