Roma vs. Milan Predictions and Preview

This is a game which is tricky to pick a winner from with each side in similar form and only separated by one point in the standings – in the race for a top four finish.

Roma have three wins from their last five Serie A games but have just a total of five from the previous 13 in total, a run including five draws and three defeats.

Milan are not in particularly great form either with two wins in their last five but only three in their last 10, while five of those games have ended in draws.

It is not surprising that it is the home side who are slight favourites to win this encounter at odds of 21/20, with Milan priced at 13/5 and the draw available at 5/2.

These fixtures tend to produce a lot of goals with 12 going in across the last four meetings, so over 3.5 goals at 9/5 appears to be a solid bet with over 4.5 at 9/2.

A ‘double chance’ on Milan – who have just one defeat in nine – to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 3/4 while a Roma win/draw outcome is at 1/4.

If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 12/5.

Latest Form

One to watch for Roma: Stephan El Shaarawy has netted seven goals in Serie A this season including in each of his last two games against Atalanta and Torino. The forward will be keen to score against his former club here.

One to watch for Milan: Krzysztof Piatek will be hoping for his first Rossoneri start since joining from Genoa, having already his 13 Serie A goals this campaign.

Long shot: Milan have played in four scoreless draws in their last ten fixtures while Roma have recently failed to score against Udinese, Real Madrid and Juventus. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 12/1.
