With Juventus and Napoli picking up wins this weekend, Roma travel to the San Siro on Monday night looking to keep the pressure on their title rivals.
The Giallorossi remain unbeaten so far this season, and with talismanic captain Francesco Totti nearing a return to action they will look to regain their momentum ahead of the winter break.
Having drawn four consecutive games at the back end of November and beginning of December, the capital club returned to winning ways against Fiorentina last time out and will take great confidence from that performance ahead of facing the Rossoneri.
Victory would move them back to within three points of Juve, and simultaneously open up a five point gap over Napoli in third.
In contrast, the picture looks bleak for Massimiliano Allegri who has failed to turn things around domestically, and the pressure is still on despite their progress in the Champions League.
They remain 17 points adrift of a top-three finish, and although several members of the squad have not yet given up hope of reaching their target, another loss on Monday night could be fatal to their chances.
Milan can take inspiration from their miraculous turnaround last year where they secured a last gasp place in the Champions League, but it will take a monumental effort this time round as the competition is much more fierce and the quality level has increased.
Roma haven’t beaten Milan at San Siro since December 2010, but given the current form of both sides they will undoubtedly fancy their chances ahead of Monday’s encounter. Nevertheless, with Mario Balotelli and Kaka looking in good form, it is impossible to rule out the hosts.
