AC Milan vs Roma - 8/31/18 Serie A Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

AC Milan will take on Roma at home at the San Siro. Both teams had poor starts to the season and will look to turn things around quickly. These are two of the biggest clubs in Italian football and they will both look to get a win in this match. This should ensure we are treated to a great match.

AC Milan threw away a 2 goal lead to end up losing away from home against Napoli. It was a disappointing performance by the Rossoneri as they were in a position where they should have won the match. The defense seems to be a big problem for AC Milan and they made too many mistakes. This is something that needs to improve and I think it will since the players are very talented and need some time to gel as a unit. The attacking players played well as they scored twice so that is something to be optimistic about.

Similar to AC Milan, Roma have big issues with their defense. Atalanta scored 3 times against Roma in the last match which was played at Roma’s home ground. Conceding 3 goals at home is a very bad result and things will need to improve quickly for the side from the Italian capital. AC Milan will test Roma’s defense and if the likes of Manolas and Florenzi don’t improve, the result could get embarrassing. Like AC Milan, the strikers are in good form for Roma as they scored 3 times to get a draw against Atalanta.

All in all, I am going to pick AC Milan to win this match. They are at home and I think the home ground advantage will be enough to get the Rossoneri over the line. The best bet is betting on the over 2.5 goals. As explained, neither side can defend while both can attacking so that should mean plenty of goals.
