AC Milan vs Roma Prediction
AC Milan are playing above expectations in this new football campaign. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has led the team last weekend in big victory against Inter Milan. Derby Della Madonnina ended 2-1 in favour of Rossoneri.
Just a couple of days after they faced Celtic in Glasgow in Europa League premiere. Rade Krunic got a chance in the starting roster and finally scored his first goal for AC Milan. They won the match 3-1.
The only small concern for Stefano Pioli is that defensive line kept only two clean sheets in the last six outings.
AS Roma were also involved in mid-week Europa League action. They defeated champions of Switzerland, team Young Boys in Bern despite being down by one goal. Bruno Peres and Kumbulla scored goals in the second half.
In terms of domestic campaign, Roma had a slow start, collecting only seven points from four matches. The best performance so far was in a 2-2 draw against Juventus at home. Backing goals in this Monday’s encounter is the safest option to go.
