AC Milan vs AS Roma / Serie A – The first match in the third round of the Italian Serie A, we have two old rivals Milan and Roma, with the proviso that “Rossoneri” have so far played only one championship match and were defeated with 3-2 from Naples, while Roma has won four points in the first two matches. As for their duels in the past season, it is interesting that the guests have celebrated with 2-0 on both occasions.
AC Milan vs AS Roma Begins: 31.08.2018 at 20:30 CET
And that last victory of Milan on the Roman Olimpico has also meant the end of their series of even four defeats in a row in their duels with Roma, while they will now need a special motive to finally try to overcome them at their San Siro. Especially because this will be their first match in Milan in front of their home fans, given that their first round’s match with Genoa was delayed due to the accident in Genoa, while coach Gattuso’s players were unluckily defeated with 3-2 by Napoli as guests.
Namely, the “Rossoneri” have thanks to goals by Bonaventura and Calabria even had a 2-0 lead up to 53rd minute of their match with San Paolo, but after that Zielinski has first evened the score (2-2), while the reservist Mertens has scored a winning goal in the 80th minute of the match. Of course, Gattuso was very angry and disappointed after such a defeat, and he has already announced several changes in the starting lineup for Roma, for which he cannot due to injury still count on defenders Conti, Zapata and Strinic.
Probable lineups AC Milan: G.Donnarumma – Calabria, Caldara, Romagnoli, Rodriguez – Kessie, Biglia, Bonaventura – Suso, Higuain, Calhanoglu
When it comes to the team of Roma, they opened a new season with a victory of 1-0 over Torino, given that Dzeko has scored that winning goal in 89th minute, after which they played a crazy match on their Olimpico, which ended with 3-3. In the early stages of the match, the Romans have taken the lead thanks to Pastore, then the guests turned the score to 1-3, while Florenci and Manolas have in the finish of the match brought one point to their team.
In the meantime, Florenzi got injured and his place in the duel with Milan would probably be occupied by Karsdorp, while coach Francesco has announced that instead of the injured Fazio he could give the chance to the newcomer Marcano this time. We also now expect Nzonzi from the first minute on the field and Kluivert on the wing, while we still need to add that the Dutch midfielder Strootman has left the team during the summer, who went to French Marseille.
Probable lineups AS Roma: Olsen – Karsdorp, Marcano, Manolas, Kolarov – Cristante, Nzonzi, Pastore – Under, Džeko, Kluivert
AC Milan vs AS Roma PICK
Given that both teams have in the last round showed good sides in their attack and bad in defence, then it is quite logical to expect goals on both sides.
