AC Milan and AS Roma Fight for the Third Place in Serie APublished October 1, 2017 by Florin P
AC Milan and AS Roma lock horns in the most anticipated match of this Serie A round (5:00 p.m UK Time).
AC Milan started the season on an upbeat but then suffered a couple of setbacks that have pushed them out of the podium. The most recent defeat on the road against Sampdoria only made matters worse and they need to recuperate those points as quickly as possible. Opportunity presents itself this weekend, when they have home pitch advantage, but their opponents are the second toughest Italian team.
Few Draws for AC Milan and AS Roma
AC Milan relies heavily on its backline and was initially quite successful at preventing opponents from scoring both at home and on the road. Somehow, they were less effective recently and the result is a string of mediocre results that can jeopardize their title ambitions. A victory against AS Roma will bring them back on track, but for such a triumph to be secured, they need to strengthen the backline.
AC Milan footballers usually play their best game against top opponents but have a hard time focusing against weaker teams. In this regard, they should do their best against the runners up, but the outcome of the first half is particularly important in this confrontation. That’s because the two teams have finished very few games undecided and once at the helm, they usually run away with victory.
Fatigue Takes its Toll on AS Roma
The visitors have just returned from the Champions League fixture played in Azerbaijan and the long trip took its toll on players. They been under a lot of pressure recently playing in several competitions, yet they need to do their best once again.
AC Milan is well-positioned to end the visitors’ winning streak and claim three valuable points that could help them secure a European cup berth. They definitely have what it takes to win the match, but in order to mitigate risks, players can take the cover off a draw no bet wager. The odds are 1/1 at bet365 Sports.
