Tactical Preview: Roma v Milan

It’s all about getting crosses and set-plays into the box for the target men, as Marcello Cossali-Francis breaks down the Roma-Milan systems.

The Giallorossi win a lot of games by the odd goal and their scoring record is considerably weaker than the rest of the top four. They’re very solid defensively, the third best in the league, and are always very difficult to beat.

4-2-3-1 vs 4-3-3

Defrel still out for Roma

Gregoire Defrel isn’t fit enough to travel with Roma to face Juventus, but Aleksandar Kolarov returns to the squad.

The Giallorossi face the Old Lady in Turin tomorrow night, as they look to get a first win away at Juve since January 2010.

Defrel returned to training this week after struggling with a knee injury, but Coach Eusebio Di Francesco hasn’t deemed him fit enough to make the squad.

Kolarov returns after being rested in the midweek Coppa Italia defeat to Torino, meaning it’s pretty much a full squad for the Lupi.

Nicola: 'Roma penalty invented'

Crotone Coach Davide Nicola is still furious after his team lost to Roma thanks to “a penalty that was totally invented.”

The 1-0 result at the Stadio Olimpico last night was decided by a Diego Perotti spot-kick, but although VAR has now been introduced, there seemed to be precious little contact between Mario Sampirisi and Aleksandar Kolarov.

“Apparently, the Stadio Olimpico doesn’t bring us much luck with referees,” Nicola told reporters.

Kolarov: ‘Pointless to talk Scudetto’

Roma goalscorer Aleksandar Kolarov says it’s “pointless” to talk about the Scudetto at this stage of the season.

The left-back scored a stunning free-kick to beat Torino this afternoon, but refused to discuss the Giallorossi’s title chances after the match.

“It’s pointless to talk about the Scudetto after so few games,” Kolarov shrugged, speaking to Premium Sport after the final whistle.

“It was important to win after London [the 3-3 draw with Chelsea] and now we have two home games that we have to win.
