Roma vs AC Milan Prediction & Match Preview

Roma vs AC Milan Prediction & Match Preview

Roma and AC Milan are poised to engage in their first clash of the 2023/24 Serie A season on Friday evening at Stadio Olimpico.

The two teams are entering the match with completely contrasting spirits. Roma endured a nightmarish commencement to the season, managing to secure just a single point from their opening two matches against Salernitana and Verona.

Goalkeeper Rui Patricio had another dismal performance last Saturday, conceding two goals from three shots on target. Among all Roma players at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, Patricio received the lowest ratings.

Even when considering the preseason exhibitions, the Romans have allowed a minimum of two goals in four out of their last five games this summer, encompassing matches against Farense and Toulouse.

This trend could be music to the ears of AC Milan’s Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic, Rafael Leao, and their teammates, as they have begun the season with an unstoppable momentum.

I Rossoneri currently reign at the summit of the league table, boasting two victories and a total of six goals scored in the first two matches of the campaign.

In the previous weekend’s 4-1 triumph over Torino at Stadio San Siro, Pulisic, Giroud, and Leao all found the target, underlining AC Milan’s potent attacking prowess.

Roma vs AC Milan Head-to-head

AC Milan arrives with a historical advantage, having triumphed in four encounters and played to a draw in three out of the last seven meetings with La Lupa.

During the preceding Serie A season, the teams ended up with an equal share of the spoils in two face-to-face battles.

In each of the six previous head-to-head clashes, both teams managed to find the back of the net.

Roma vs AC Milan Prediction

AC Milan will step into the match with significantly elevated morale. They’ve been finding the back of the net with remarkable frequency, tallying ten goals across their last three matches, of which two were in competitive fixtures. On the flip side, Roma’s goalkeeper, Rui Patricio, is experiencing a notable dip in form, and it’s challenging to envision the hosts gaining much ground in this encounter.

We’re particularly drawn to the odds of 1.83 presented for an AC Milan victory in the “Draw No Bet” category. As an alternative choice, considering AC Milan to score two or more goals on Friday at odds of 2.75 seems appealing.
