Milan is welcoming Roma to San Siro in a derby match of round 5 in the Italian Serie A.
Milan is the only team in the top European leagues who still have all wins in their national leagues. Milan is at the top of the Serie A standings with 12 points, 9 scored goals, and only 1 conceded goal in the first 4 games of the season. Milan has also won their Europa League game against Celtic earlier this week 1-3 on the road. In their latest Serie A game in a derby against Inter last weekend, Milan has had 45% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Milan was playing well in this game, and with two quick goals in the first half, Milan has won this match 1-2. Milan hasn’t lost in their last 25 games, which is a fantastic run, and they are playing some of the best soccer in Italy, and the remarkable thing is that Ibrahimovic is 39 years old, and he is playing like he is 29. Ibrahimovic has scored 4 goals for Milan so far this season, while Leao added 2 goals. Leao, Hernandez, Kessie, and Calhanoglu each added 1 assist. Musacchio, Rebic, Gabbia, and Calhanoglu are all injured, and they will miss this game. Milan is playing in the Europa League next week as well, but now that Milan is at the top of Serie A, it’s important not to make the wrong step and lose this opportunity to become one of the main competitors for the title.
Roma is playing well, and they are on a 3-game winning streak, while they haven’t lost any of their last 4 games. Roma was also playing in the Europa League earlier this week, and they have beaten Young Boys on the road. In their last Serie A game, Roma was hosting Benevento, and they have had 52% of ball possession in that game, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Roma was struggling for a bit in this game, but they ended up winning this match 5-2. Veretout has scored 3 goals for Roma so far this season, while Dzeko and Pedro added 2 goals each. Mkhitaryan has added 3 assists for Roma. Zaniolo, Pastore, Diawara, Smalling, and Calafiori are all injured for Roma. Roma is in 9th place in the Serie A standings with 7 points, 8 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals. Roma is a good team, they are playing solid soccer, but they have been hit with injuries which reduced their depth greatly. Roma’s defense is inconsistent, but they can create a lot of chances and score goals in the attacking end. Roma is also playing in the Europa League next week, and I think they will rest some players in this match.
It’s plain and simple, I’m not siding against Milan in their current form, no matter who they play against. We are getting Milan for the plus money, and I’m taking it.
