Roma welcomed AC Milan this Sunday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in Italian Serie A’s Matchday 10. The hosts ended up beating AC Milan 2-1 and moved up to 5th in the standings, counting on 16 points. The home-team triumph led the Roman team to head to the qualifying zone to the UEFA Europa League.

As for the traditional club of Milan, which has won only one of their last six games, bitter the 13th position with ten points and is already flirting with the risk of fighting against relegation – the first team in this risk zone of the table is Brescia, 18th placed, with seven points.

In this duel on Sunday night in Italy, Roma opened the scoring in the 38th minute when Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko seized a fine pass from Gianluca Mancini and headed into the net to beat goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. 1-0 Roma.

After the break, Milan showed strength and reacted at the Olimpico. On 55 mins, French left-back Theo Hernández received a pass from Davide Calabria and left everything equal in the scoring. 1-1.

However, shortly after, at 58, young midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo, was the Roman hero and scored for the hosts to secure the 2-1 win.

Being 2-1 down away, Milan’s coach Stefano Pioli decided to sub off Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta and Argentine Lucas Biglia for Krzysztof Piatek and Ismael Bennacer. However, the changes promoted by the coach did not have the desired effect and the team led by Paulo Fonseca sustained the 2-1 win.

Honestly, how can a coach leave Piatek off benched in this Milan team? The Polish striker was responsible for a lot of goals scored by the Rossoneri last season, and now he’s benched. I cannot really conceive this idea. AC Milan needs to bring back the winning mentality, otherwise, they will end up relegated and will never go back to its glory days. A true Nottingham Forest.

After this home triumph, the Roman team will be back on the pitch in the Italian Serie A next Wednesday, when they will take on Udinese as visitors. The following day, Milan will try to take advantage of the home court factor to beat SPAL in the match that will close the 11th round of the competition.
