In what is being billed by Italian fans as the first Serie A “American Derby,” AS Roma, which is owned by a business group from Boston, Massachusetts, according to The Associated Press, travels to San Siro where they will face AC Milan, a team recently taken over by a New Jersey-based financial consortium, in a game that will live stream on Friday.
So far in the young Serie A season, Roma have played two matches with a win over Torino and a dramatic draw last week against Atalanta. But AC Milan have played just one, a loss to 2017/2018 league runner-up Napoli, 3-2, at Stadio San Paolo, according to 90Min. But Milan continue to set their sites on the top of the Serie A table, and Friday’s game is likely to mark the debut of 24-year-old Italy international Mattis Caldera, coming off the best season of his young career with his hometown club of Atalanta, where he appeared in 43 games and netted a career-high seven goals from the center back position.
AC Milan have recorded 73 Serie A wins against AS Roma over the years, according to Yahoo! Sports, making the Giallorossi the team to be beaten by AC Milan more than any other top flight club.
