The highly anticipated friendly match between Roma and AC Milan is set to take place at the Optus Stadium on Friday.

With both teams wrapping up their seasons on different notes, this post-season game offers a chance for fans to see their favourite players in action and for the teams to end on a positive note.

Roma's Recent Form

Roma ended their 2023-24 Serie A campaign with a disappointing 2-1 loss to Empoli, marking their second defeat in the last three games.

The Giallorossi's late-season slump saw them drop out of the Champions League spots, finishing below Atalanta.

However, Roma will look to bounce back and extend their undefeated streak against AC Milan to three games, having won both fixtures in their Europa League quarter-final clash earlier this season.

AC Milan's Recent Form

AC Milan, on the other hand, managed to secure second place in Serie A despite a shaky end to their season.

Their final game, a thrilling 3-3 draw with Salernitana, showcased their attacking prowess but also highlighted defensive frailties.

With manager Stefano Pioli set to depart and Daniele Bonera taking charge for this friendly, Milan will aim to put on a show for their Australian fans.

Team News

Roma

Roma will be without several key players for this friendly.

Lorenzo Pellegrini, Gianluca Mancini, Bryan Cristante, and Stephen El Shaarawy are all with the Italian national team for Euro 2024.

Romelu Lukaku and Rui Patricio are also absent. However, fans can look forward to seeing Paulo Dybala and potentially Tammy Abraham, who has recovered from a knee injury.

AC Milan

AC Milan's squad for the Perth friendly includes Theo Hernandez and Olivier Giroud, both expected to feature despite their upcoming commitments with the French national team.

Notably, Rafael Leao and Christian Pulisic are missing, which might disappoint some fans.

Predicted Lineups

Roma

Svilar, Karsdorp, Smalling, Ndicka, Angelino, Bove, Tumminelli, Aouar, Dybala, Abraham, Azmoun

AC Milan

Sportiello, Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez, Adli, Reijnders, Musah, Loftus-Cheek, Okafor, Giroud

Prediction

With both teams lacking momentum and several key players missing, this friendly match promises to be an entertaining affair with goals on both ends.

We predict a high-scoring draw, with a 2-2 outcome being a likely result.
