The capital club played for more than an hour with ten men and lost Lukaku due to injury, but still beat the red and black.

The return match between Rome and Milan was quite eventful. For its results we recognized another participant in the round of 16 of the Europa League.

A week ago, Roma beat their rival at San Siro (1-0) and significantly increased their chances of progressing to the next round. Between two games against Milan, Daniele De Russia’s team stopped in Udine. In the 71st minute, the Roman club’s defender Evan N’Dika lost consciousness on the same field, after which he was taken to the hospital. The teams decided not to continue the match; the remaining minutes will be played another day. Fortunately, on April 17, N’Dick was already released from the hospital.

Another Italian club finished in the LE semi-finals:

Liverpool couldn’t. “Atalanta” with Miranchuk – in the semi-finals of the Europa League!

Two goals, a hit on the crossbar, a straight red card, three substitutions, an injury, and all this happened in the first half of Roma’s second leg against Milan. Half eventful! Milan settled for 0-2 in the 22nd minute. What do you think of this start? First, the post helped the visitors after a shot by Lorenzo Pellegrini, but Gianluca Mancini was the first to finish. The center back scored into an empty goal from the center forward position. By the way, Mancini scored in the first game, but then scored with a header after a set piece.

After 10 minutes, the Milan fans became completely sad. Matteo Gabbia, interrupting a rival cross, threw the ball directly to Paulo Dybala. The Argentine showed once again that he has a magical left foot. A precise shot at the farthest angle: take it out! 0:3 on aggregate: did anyone believe in Milan’s progress after such a failure in the first minutes?

Between Roma’s goals, the visitors had a good chance. Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s shot bounced off the pitch, but the ball hit the crossbar. Milan did not take advantage of their opportunity and Roma did not forgive their rival. In the 29th minute, De Rossi sent off Romelu Lukaku. The muscular Belgian was injured and indicated with a gesture that he needed a substitute. And after a couple of minutes, “Roma” was left with ten men. Zeki Celik crashed into Rafael Leau’s heel from behind and saw a red card in front of him. It’s hard to say if this foul resulted in an elimination, but Szymon Marciniak didn’t change his decision.

At the end of the first half, De Rossi also changed Dybala, replacing him with defender Diego Llorente. Of Roma’s three main forwards, only Stefan El Shaarawy came off in the second half. It should be noted that after the withdrawal the owners did not panic. They maintained their formation and played calmly until the break. Milan did not pose unsolvable tasks to its rivals.

After the break, the guests had the ball, but the capital team defended calmly. In the 75th minute, Milan had fired 16 shots, but only one of them was on target. Very revealing! The guests needed to score three goals, but they only scored one. Leau made a great cross and Gabbia headed the ball into the near corner. And already in added time, Theo Hernández openly hit El Shaarawy’s legs and saw a red card in front of him. However, after the replay, Marciniak replaced her due to a yellow card.

Milan beat Roma twice this season in Serie A, but things took a different turn in the Europa League. De Rossi has done what José Mourinho has not been able to do this season. Furthermore, a year ago, the Portuguese were one step away from winning the Europa League. What result will De Rossi achieve? Roma’s next rival is Bayer Leverkusen, who have not lost a game this season. It will be interesing!

Who will we now call the favorite of the tournament?
