An exciting game awaits us on Friday night when Roma host AC Milan at Stadio Olimpico for matchday three of the new Italy’s top flight campaign.
Milan’s flawless start has made them slight favorites in one of the highlights matches in what appears to be a jam-packed weekend of Serie A action.
AS Roma vs AC Milan
It’s fair to say that both in the league and in Europe, the hosts enjoyed a fantastic season last year. The Yellow and Reds reached another European final and concluded their campaign in sixth place for a second time. Unfortunately, they haven’t had the successful start to the new campaign that their supporters had hoped for, earning just one point from their first two games.
While this was going on, AC Milan struggled to replicate their Serie A championship-winning performance from the 2021–2022 season. Despite finishing fourth, they are making up for it with a strong start to the new campaign. The Rossoneri are now at the top of the table after victories against Bologna and Torino on matchdays one and two, respectively. On Friday, they’ll try to continue their winning streak.
In the Serie A rankings, AS Roma is currently in 13th place and has not played well this year. After suffering a close 2-1 loss to Hellas Verona the previous week, the home team will need to win this game. In their previous match, the Rossoneri easily defeated Torino 4-1, and they’ll try to repeat that feat this week.
Having strengthened their squad this summer through transfers, AC Milan has had a strong start to their Serie A season. In his first two league games for the team, Christian Pulisic has scored once, and he will try to increase that total in this encounter.
Roma had the sixth-best home record at the end of the previous season, but their recent performance makes us mistrust them. In their last four competitive games, the hosts have lost all four of them.
Under Jose Mourinho, AS Roma has significantly improved, but they have a dismal recent record when it comes to the Rossoneri. In order to put it into perspective, it should be noted that the Magic One has lost four of their last seven encounters with Milan. Since AC Milan is now the superior team, they should be able to prevail in this match.
Roma started the new campaign with a 2-2 draw with Salernitana before they were beaten 2-1 by Verona, despite their opponents being reduced to ten men.
Romelu Lukaku may be on the verge of signing but he will take time to integrate into this time and Jose Mourinho’s side is worth taking on in this matchup.
