AS ROMA v AC MILAN Stadio Olimpico, Rome Saturday 9th Jan, 2016, 19:45 GMT *** Roma and AC Milan meet on Saturday in Rome, and with the recent results showing no signs of improvement for either clubs, this game could well be decisive for the future of the respective managers Rudi Garcia and Sinisa Mihajlovic. The anger of the fans of both the clubs have reached a boiling point and all these factors make this game a must win for both. Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is reportedly furious with their 1-0 defeat to Bologna at San Siro, and is ready to sack Mihajlovic if things don’t improve quickly.

Berlusconi is livid because after spending €80m in the summer, the club are still plagued with the same problems they had a year ago. Reports believe that Mihajlovic must turn things around against Roma on Saturday to […]

Last year Roma made some decisive mistakes in the transfer window and they must get it right this winter. Juan Iturbe, who will go down as one of the costliest blunders in Roma’s history, has already been offloaded, while Seydou Doumbia has returned after his loan […]

The Serie A season so far had no shortage of twists and turns, thrills and spills as the resurgence of Inter Milan, Napoli and Fiorentina have coincided with a stuttering start for defending champions Juventus.   There have been four different leaders since the start of the season and all of them are realistic contenders for the Scudetto. Remarkably Juventus are yet to reach the summit although they have bounced back strongly after a horrible start. With teams like Empoli, Torino and Sassuolo playing attractive football while traditional giants like Roma and AC Milan struggle in patches, the contest in the peninsula has captured the imagination so far. Inter Milan have made their best start since 1966, Fiorentina were at the top of the table for the first time since 1999, Napoli did the same for the first time in quarter of a century, and that has made the title race fascinatingly unpredictable. With some bigger names failing to make an […]
