AC Milan vs Roma – Serie A: AC Milan has made a very strong investment this season in order to try and win some titles once again.
But the team has shown some inconsistency so far on their playing level and they are not showing the same flash they showed on the initial rounds, where they did very well, and that can be explained by some questionable decisions of their manager.
One of them has been the fact that he almost never starts André Silva in the Serie A when the Portuguese already has 4 goals scored in 2 Europa League matches.
On the Serie A, they’ve always won at home, but away from San Siro, they’ve already lost twice, against Lazio and more recently against Sampdoria.
In the middle of the week, they hosted and defeated Rijeka 3-2 on a match where they were leading 2-0 but then allowed the Croatians to equalize in the 88th minute. With a lot of heart, they were able to score the 3-2 and they ended up winning a match that was supposed to be easy but ended up being very hard for them.
Roma has done well so far, this season.
They are a team who hasn’t invested as much as they did in previous seasons and opted more to potentialize the players they have, having sold other players like Salah who were influent and important.
Roma has in Dzeko their big offensive threat and the Bosnian has been scoring well.
Roma have only dropped points once in the Serie A, which was at home against Inter in a match they lost 1-3 after leading 1-0.
They have won every match after that, with the exception of a draw against Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League.
Mid-week they travelled to Qarabag where they won 2-1 on a Champions League match and they come into this Italian derby with high confidence.
AC Milan vs Roma – Betting Tip and Prediction:
AC Milan will have the ultimate test here against Roma, another title contender. I believe this will be a balanced match for the most part, but this is the ideal match for AC Milan to win and prove that they can effectively fight for the title.
The investment was high and, despite committing some mistakes away from home, the team has won every match at home so far.
They are strong this season, with good dynamic at home and I believe that their match against Rijeka might have woke them up in order to correct their mistakes and get the win here.
Roma plays good football and they are an organized team who knows how to decrease the pace of the match and cause some troubles in transition. However, I expect AC Milan to prove their strength here and get the 3 points in the end.
