Wednesday January 31 at 21:00, AS Roma will welcome AC Milan in the return leg of the semi-final of the Coppa Italia.

After the 2-2 draw in Milan in the first leg, the Romans will vie for a spot in the final, where they would probably encounter Inter, which won its first leg 3-0 away to Sampdoria.

In the Coppa Italia at the Stadio Olimpico, the head-to-head between Roma and AC Milan is equal: 2 wins each and 2 draws.
Milan’s last win goes back to January 22 2004 (2-1) in the return leg of the quarter-finals.
You have to go back all the way to March 10 1993 to find the last Roman victory (2-0) in the semi-final first leg.

Huge winter signing Ronaldo hasn’t been called up for the match by Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti.
For this match Luciano Spalletti has selected a 22-man squad that includes the talismanic Francesco Totti, who missed last week’s league game against Siena.
The AS Roma squad: Bertagnoli, Cassetti, Chivu, Curci, De Rossi, Faty, Ferrarri, Mancini, Marangon, Mexes, Okaka, Panucci, Perrotta, Pizarro, Rosi, Taddeï, Tavano, Tonetto, Totti, Virga, Vucinic, Wilhelmsson
