Roma could score a major upset today if they can keep Zlatan in check.

There are never any shortage of story lines when you face Zlatan Ibrahimović; the guy is a one-man show for a reason. Zlatan might not have the same widespread appeal (or quite the same legacy) as Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, but he's one of the very few athletes in the history of modern sport known the world over by just one name: Zlatan. He's right up there with guys like Jordan, LeBron, Messi, Ali and Tiger.

Zlatan may garner all the headlines, but today's clash at the San Siro is notable for one other very impressive and very important reason: Milan are riding an absurd 21 match unbeaten streak, making this—without a doubt—the biggest match of Roma’s young season and arguably the toughest test of Paulo Fonseca's Roma tenure thus far.

The lineups are in, now let's see if the Giallorossi can foment an upset.
