AC Milan will be playing hosts to AS Roma at the San Siro stadium, as the Serie A season continues after a 2-week winter break.
The hosts are currently at the second spot on the points table and trail the leaders Inter Milan by 4 points. A win in this game will take AC Milan within striking distance to grab the top spot. With half of the season yet to go, AC Milan will be fancying their chances of lifting the Championship Cup for the 19th time.
Roma is in 6th place with 32 points and is locked with other teams like Fiorentina, Lazio, and Juventus in a bid to qualify for the Europa League. This is the first season that Roma is playing under its new manager Jose Mourinho. The team won its first three fixtures of the season rather convincingly, scoring a cumulative of 9 goals. But since then, the performance has been rather inconsistent. The team has lost 2 of its last 5 games and won 2.
Match prediction and betting tips for AC Milan vs AS Roma Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the San Siro Stadium, Milan, on the 6th of January 2022.
AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli would be thankful for the 2-week break, as it has allowed most of his players to recover from various injuries. Davide Calabria, Rafael Leao, Ante Rebic, and Zlatan Ibrahimović should be fit enough to start the game on Thursday. However, they might still be missing out on Simon Kjaer and Plizzari.
On the other hand, Jose Mourinho may have certain selection issues, as two of his yet unnamed first-team players have tested positive for COVID, and are currently in isolation, and unavailable for the game. Roma hasn’t been particularly impressive when it comes to protecting its net and has seen 21 goals go against them in this competition.
Roma has found itself on the losing side in the past three away games that it has played against AC Milan, and we expect the same pattern to continue for this game too.
Both the teams have similar strengths and weaknesses, at least on paper, and we expect a tense battle with some ill-tempered moments on the pitch.
Bet on AC Milan to win.
Four out of the previous five matches between AC Milan and As Roma have seen over 2.5 goals being scored. The two teams both have the attack to get goals and they are also in a position where they have to play some attacking football. All of this generally tends to indicate a game where more than a few goals are scored and we are happy to take a punt on that.
