AC Milan vs AS Roma Soccer Betting Tips – Serie A (26.10.2020)
Will Ibra & Co stay without losing points?
Betting Tips: AC Milan
At the end of the fifth matchday in the Italian Serie A, an absolute treat awaits the fans. In the San Siro stadium, AC Milan and AS Roma face each other. Both teams are represented internationally this season and celebrated opening victories in the Europa League on Thursday. The home side from Milan is generally in top form, while Roma in the league has remained below expectations so far.
The AC Milan around oldie Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a pure white vest to show in the domestic championship and is accordingly bursting with self-confidence. The Roma, on the other hand, are five points behind the top of the table after only four rounds. With a defeat, the Giallorossi would only see the Rossoneri’s taillights and be eight points behind.
In the betting base odds comparison, odds of just over 2.00 for the home win are currently to be found between the league leaders AC Milan and AS Roma, with a success of the guests currently betting odds of around 3.30-3.40.
AC Milan – Statistics & current form
The 2010/11 season was the last time AC Milan celebrated winning the Scudetto in Serie A. There has been little reason to cheer for Rossoneri supporters over the past ten years. The name AC Milan still embodied a top club, but the performances shown were more and more oriented towards mediocrity.
For months in impressive form
Last season, the Rossoneri were also in the chasing group of the Europa League for a long time. But after the compulsory break in spring 2020, the team of head coach Stefano Pioli is in excellent shape. With Ralf Rangnick there was already a Pioli successor ante portas, but his incredible run of success caused a rethink.
The Milanese conceded their last league defeat on March 8th at home against CFC Genoa. After that, Italian football paused for over three months and during this difficult time, everyone in charge did their homework with flying colours. Nine wins and three draws ensured the jump to sixth place in the table and the associated qualification for Europe.
Blossom white vest for the current season
The last league game of the previous season was played on August 1, and the kick-off for the new season sounded on September 17. The almost six-week break did not upset the Milanese and the run of success continues. In the Europa League qualification, three victories succeeded without really shining. On Thursday, AC Milan prevailed 3-1 against the strong home Scots of Celtic Glasgow.
And the team hasn’t lost any points in the league either. As the only team in the top five leagues in Europe, Milan has not yet suffered a loss of points. Last weekend, “King Zlatan” ensured a prestige win with his brace in the derby against Inter. The home side are “on fire” and accordingly the prediction for the home side is obvious between AC Milan and AS Roma.
The probable lineup of AC Milan:
Donnarumma – Hernandez, Romagnoli, Kjaer, Calabria – Kessie, Benneacer – Leao, Krunic, Saelemaekers – Ibrahimovic

AS Roma – Statistics & current form
Paulo Fonseca and his Roma got caught. After a sobering start to the new season, the form curve has clearly been pointing upwards in the last few days and weeks. On the first day of the match, the game against Hellas Verona was rated 0: 3, as Roma sent an ineligible player onto the field.
Three wins in a row
There was an initial reaction in the duel against champions Juventus Turin when the Romans secured their first point thanks to a strong performance. In the last two league games, the mandatory victories against Udinese Calcio and promoted Benevento followed. In the 5-2 win, the offensive around veteran Edin Dzeko, in particular, knew how to shine.
At the start of the UEFA Europa League, the Giallorossi celebrated a 2-1 victory on the artificial turf of the Wankdorf Stadium of the Young Boys. A victory in which the Italian top team did not shine, but showed morale and turned the game around after a break after a one-two punch.
Roma have won six of the last seven away games
Including the guest appearance in Switzerland, the Roma have now won six of the last seven away games across all seasons. The only exception was the mentioned opening game at Hellas Verona (originally ended 0-0). Otherwise, the Roma rushed from victory to victory – in the 2019/20 season, more points were even collected abroad than at home.
In view of these strong numbers, in the top game between AC Milan and AS Roma, the prediction for a point win is quite possible. However, Fonseca has to do without Chris Smalling, Amadou Diawara, Nicolo Zaniolo and Javier Pastore.
Probable lineup of AS Roma:
Mirante – Spinazzola, Mancini, Roger Ibanez, Santon – Cristante, Veretout – Mkhitaryan, Pellegrini, Pedro – Dzeko

10/22 2020 BSC Young Boys 1 – 2 AS Roma

AC Milan vs AS Roma – Direct comparison / H2H balance
