Allegri: Roma vs Milan is a title battle

serie a live betsMilan are on a good run in Serie A having won three in a row heading into the match at the Olimpico on Saturday and the coach feels a win in Rome will be highly profitable in terms of their Scudetto credentials.

Massimiliano Allegri has rallied his players for their Serie A encounter against Roma, as he believes it could be a defining moment in the race for the title.

"What awaits us at the Olimpico is a direct clash which is worth the Scudetto," Allegri told the press.

"If we get points against Roma it will allow us to stay towed to those at the top of the table. So, this game is a very important one for us."

However, Allegri believes Roma will be eager for three points after losing 2-1 to Genoa in midweek.

"Roma played an excellent game against Genoa and they did not deserve to lose," Allegri said.

"We will need to be careful and play an excellent game on every level. "We want to bring home a positive result and get the three points as well as continue on the path we have taken in our last three games." Kick-off at the Stadio Olimpico is at 18:00 CET. Milan's Philippe Mexes will miss out against his former club after suffering an injury in training.
