Roma vs AC Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 October 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
Milan did not shine at all in the mid-week’s win over Torino. They also lost all three UEFA Champions League games this season, meaning they are certainly beatable despite the record they currently possess in the Serie A. Roma have what it takes to pull off a much-wanted three-pointer here.
Roma vs AC Milan Head-to-head
- Milan will come into this on the back of two wins and a draw in the last three encounters with Roma.
- Both teams scored in five of the last six head to head affairs.
- Roma won 12, drew 10, and lost 7 of the last 29 home fixtures against Milan.
Roma vs AC Milan Predictions & Analysis
Roma host Milan in the derby of the Matchday No 11 in the Serie A on Sunday evening at Stadio Olimpico.
The Romans are hoping to reduce the gap between them and their Sunday counterparts who hold the very top of the standings with a phenomenal record of nine wins and a draw in the opening ten rounds.
Roma hold the fourth place in the Serie A table at the moment and are as many as nine points shy of the Rossoneri.
A win here could push Jose Mourinho and his men straight into the battle for the highest spots and there are no doubts the Special One will find a way to motivate his lads for the big match.
Roma can rely on their terrific home form. They have been a formidable force in their own backyard, winning four and drawing one of the opening five league games at Stadio Olimpico this season.
The lone draw came last weekend against Napoli. Roma thus ended Napoli’s perfect record on the occasion.
The Romans dispatched Cagliari 1-2 on the road in mid-week and they will enter this clash in the highest of spirits.
Milan were also successful in mid-week, beating Torino 1-0 in front of the home crowd on Tuesday night.
