Milinkovic-Savic came off the bench, scored the equaliser and provided the assist for Ciro Immobile's winner at the Olimpico.
“I didn't change the game, it was the whole team that raised the tempo. The first half was not the performance we wanted, but we won and can now prepare for Celtic," the Serb told Sky Sport Italia.
“The lads wanted to give their all, we weren't able to in the first half, but the game lasts 90 minutes and it was important to get the points.
“It's especially important to win when you don't necessarily play well. We now have two wins in a row under our belts and hope to get a third with Bologna this weekend."
