Roma’s faint Serie A title hopes were blown away by last week’s disappointing loss to Lazio but they will be determined to hold on to second spot by returning to form at AC Milan.
The hosts are also coming off a poor performance when only drawing at relegation-threatened Crotone and previously lost at home to fourth-from-bottom Empoli.
We’re hoping the visitors prove their setback was just a blip and are kicking off our AC Milan vs Roma betting tips by taking 21/20 for an away win.
A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds
Milan bounced back from a run of three straight defeats at the start of the year to win six of their next nine matches but that is sadly now looking like yet another false dawn after moderate recent exploits.
The Rossoneri showed heart to come from behind to draw 2-2 with Inter thanks to a couple of late strikes but then taking just one point off Empoli and Crotone is simply not good enough.
Vincenzo Montella has hit out at persistent transfer rumours involving the club following a recent buy-out by wealthy Chinese owners but that is merely another sign of how the manager is currently feeling the pressure.
Looking at the AC Milan vs Roma odds, we like 4/1 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.
A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma had picked up 16 points out of 18 before the wheels fell off when they were beaten 3-1 by capital city rival Lazio in a derby disaster.
Despite enjoying 66 per cent of the possession that day, the Giallorossi could only benefit from a dubious penalty decision and had defender Antonio Rudiger sent off in stoppage time.
However, Roma have responded to six previous Serie A defeats this season by winning their next league match and deserve the chance to hit back straight away here too.
Roma beat Milan 3-1 here last term and a repeat of that scoreline appeals at 13/1.
Crotone 1-1 AC MILAN – Gabriel Paletta
ROMA 1-3 Lazio – Daniele De Rossi (pen)
Head-to-head: Roma 1-0 Milan, Milan 1-3 Roma, Roma 1-1 Milan, Milan 2-1 Roma, Roma 0-0 Milan.
