Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro), Milan, Italy
79′ Çalhanoğlu Sent off (Second bookable offence)
Thanks for joining us.
FT: The result means that Roma remain fifth but move onto 15 points, while Milan remain seventh on 12 points, before the rest of the weekend’s fixtures.
FT: Milan created some good chances and went close when Silva fired wide from a Rodríguez cross from a tight-angle before Bonucci forced Alisson into a fine save with a strike, following a corner. Kalinić then produced a good save from Alisson on the turn before Silva fired an effort just over the bar. Çalhanoğlu was then sent off, receiving a second booking for a foul on Nainggolan.
FT: Roma created some good chances and should have opened the scoring when Florenzi was sent through on-goal, but his effort was smothered by Donnarumma before Džeko fired home via deflection. Florenzi then doubled their lead after following-up after Donnarumma parried a Nainggolan strike.
FT: So Roma defeat Milan to move into fourth in Serie A.

HT: So will Roma make their dominance count or will Milan make the visitors rue their missed opportunities in this match? Join us again for the second-half.
HT: Roma will have to be more clinical in front of goal in the second-half as they won’t want to rue their missed opportunities. Milan have to make the most of their chances in the second-half themselves as it won’t be easy to get the better of the Roma defence. Both sides know the importance of the first goal and neither side will want to be the one to concede it.
HT: Roma created some good chances and went close when Strootman fired just wide of the post after a misplaced pass from Donnarumma before Florenzi tested Donnarumma with a volley from a cross-field pass from Kolarov.

HT: Milan didn’t created many chances but went close when Çalhanoğlu cut-inside to fire an effort just wide.
