AC Milan v Roma Betting Tips and Predictions 31/8

A derby match of the third round of Italian Serie A will be played in Milan where we’ll see home team, AC Milan v Roma. We’ve got a feeling that the game will be very open and we should see plenty of goals scored in this one.

Our Prediction For This Game:

During the last few seasons, AC Milan and Roma have played some very exciting games and it was purely down to luck that only two of last five games between them ended with more than three goals. In the last round, both teams faced tough opponents; Roma drew 3-3 against Atalanta and Milan lost 3-2 away at Napoli. Both games showed that AC Milan and Roma have great attacks, but their defence is very shaky. Therefore, we predict that this game will have over 2.5 goals, and 888sport value it at 1.79 odds.

AC Milan:

AC Milan had a free first round since the game against Genoa was postponed. In the second round the team was leading Napoli 2-0, but then conceded three quick goals and went on to lose the game. Milan, however, proved that they are very capable when attacking, but losing Leonardo Bonucci in defence was too much for them in that match.

Roma:

Roma won its first match 1-0  away at Torino, thanks to a late goal from Edin Dzeko. However, in the second round, the team proved its attacking ability as well as its defensive instability. In a fantastic match against Atalanta at home, they drew 3-3. Atalanta is a similar team to AC Milan, so hopefully, we’ll get to see a lot of goals again.

 

Reasons For and Against The Tip:

✓ Both teams play attacking football.

✓ Both teams are very vulnerable in defence.

✓ They played last round matches against similar teams, and both games were over 2.5 goals.

✘ Only 2 of their last 5 their previous meetings ended in over 2.5 goals.
