Fourth consecutive victory for the Rossonero side as they head straight for the Scudetto. The team led by Massimiliano Allegri are fighting to lift the Italian League title as they beat Roma by 1-2 this Saturday, a club that boasts two ex-Azulgranas Luis Enrique and Bojan Krkic.

In one of the most complicated match-ups, the Milan side overcame the initial goals from Osvaldo, who scored minutes before the break. However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic turned the game around with a brace in the second half, which allows the team that plays at the San Siro to stay atop the Calcio table. A goal from the penalty spot minutes into the second half brought the teams level. Then again, the Swede striker, in the dying minutes, scored the go-ahead goal to decide the outcome of the match with a header that beat Stekelenburg.

Notable absence

Center back Thiago Silva had to leave the pitch on 10 minutes with a muscle injury. The Brazilian’s match-fitness is very doubtful for this week’s Champions League match against FC Barcelona. “It will be practically impossible to play Thiago Silva in the Champions League,” said the AC Milan coach after the game with Roma.
