Two of Italy’s giants meet for the first time this season as AC Milan host unbeaten AS Roma (2:45pm, beIN Sport USA).
AC Milan is mired in the bottom half of the table as they’ve struggled to establish themselves in Serie A, although they did make it out of the UEFA Champions League group stage. Meanwhile, though they’ve slowed down, AS Roma were the hottest team in Italy, winning their first ten matches and remaining unbeaten through 15 games. The two clubs tied the last time they met at the San Siro, though Roma had the better of Milan last December when the two faced off at the Stadio Olimpico as Roma stormed off to a 4-2 victory.
American midfielder Michael Bradley starts today for Roma while captain Francesco Totti makes his second straight appearance on the bench since he suffered a thigh injury in early October. Mario Balotelli, Kaka, and Ricardo Montolivo all start for the Rossoneri today.
