Big-spending AC Milan face a test of their resolve when entertaining Roma at the San Siro on Sunday evening and we’re backing the hosts to pass with flying colours.
The jury is still out on whether Vincenzo Montella has invested the club’s new Chinese owners’ money wisely, but the Rossoneri have enjoyed three straight home wins in Serie A.
That stat inspires us to side with the hosts at 3/2 in our AC Milan vs Roma betting predictions.
A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds
AC Milan are clearly still a work in progress judged on a 2-0 defeat at Sampdoria in their last domestic match, having also lost 4-1 at Lazio in Serie A this term.
However, Cagliari, Udinese and Spal have been beaten at home to provide enough encouragement that Montella is on the right path.
Milan’s Europa League exploits here have also contained plenty of promise and this talented team should only get better and better as they gel together.
Experienced Croatia striker Nikola Kalinic has been a big hit in Italy over the past couple of years and appeals at 9/2 to score the first goal from the AC Milan vs Roma odds.
A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma have done a decent job of silencing the sceptics who said they would struggle to overcome the high-profile departures of Mohamed Salah, Antonio Rudiger and Leandro Paredes.
Edin Dzeko continues to shine, with six goals in five Serie A games and another in the Champions League on Wednesday.
However, Roma have had the benefit of a fairly kind domestic fixture list since a 3-1 home loss to Inter exposed their limitations.
In Europe, they were fortunate to draw 0-0 when overrun by Atletico Madrid and only scraped a moderate 2-1 win over Azerbaijan minnows Qarabag in midweek.
“The main thing was winning, but we know we didn’t play well,” said midfielder Radja Nainggolan. “We didn’t play how we can. We need to look each other in the eyes and do better.”
Dzeko will always be dangerous, but 3/1 for a home win and both teams to score looks the way to go in our AC Milan vs Roma betting tips.
