Roma tied Milan with two goals for each team in a match that took place at the Sen Siro Stadium in the 17th round of the Italian League.

The match saw the absence of Roma coach Jose Mourinho and Salvatore Fotti leading the team due to being suspended by the Italian Federation.

Milan’s goals in the match were scored by Pierre Kalulu and Tommaso Pobega, while Roger Ibanez and Tammy Abraham scored for Roma.

The tie raised Milan’s balance to 37 points in third place, on goal difference from Juventus, who rose to second place, 7 points behind leaders Napoli, and Roma’s balance rose to 31 points in sixth place.


Milan started the match with an offensive line consisting of Olivier Jerome, followed by Rafael Leao, Brahim Diaz and Salimakers.

Roma played the match with a defensive trio consisting of Chris Smalling, Ibanez and Gianluca Mancini.
