AC Milan – AS Roma is the derby from the third round from the Serie A competition with two highly motivated teams. AS Roma started this season with 3 goals scored but also conceding 3, and AC Milan with a loss against Napoli. The game will start at 20:30 and it will take place on Stadio San Siro in Milan, Italy.
AC Milan started the first game from this season extraordinary against the second placed from the last season. The visitors from that game scored fast in the 15th minute. Their advantage grew in the 49th minute but after that things went south. They conceded 3 goals and lost the game that was in their hands at the moment. Now they have another hard contest against a really offensive teams. When you score two goals early in the game you need to hold on to that lead. With such an approach to the game it will be hard for them in this one too. All things considered Napoli are a better team that AS Roma and maybe now they have a better chance taking the 3 points.
AC Milan: Donnarumma – Rodriguez – Romagnoli – Caldara – Calabria – Bonaventura – Biglia – Kessie – Calhanoglu – Higuain – Suso
AS Roma had almost the same outcome like Milan but they managed to take a draw. Eusebio Di Francesco’s team started really well scoring a fast goal in the 2nd minute of the game. After that they’ve collapsed and conceded 3 fast goals. In the end they managed to turn things around and the game ended 3-3. The second round was full of surprises like this one but really entertaining. Roma was the dangerous one in that game but Atalanta controlled the game really well. For the next game against Milan they should work on their defending tactics and everything should be all right for them.
AS Roma: Olsen – Kolarov – Fazio – Manolas – Karsdorp – Cristante – Rossi – Pastore – Shaarawy – Dzeko – Under

AC Milan – AS Roma: Prediction
With two really good attacking teams we should have on our hands a great contest. All of the games between these two teams saw at least two goals in the last 5 of them. Roma was the more successful team over the course of the history. They won 4 out of 5 games lately and things are looking good for them. AS Roma have mostly the same players from last season but the new acquisition from PSG, Pastore scored in the 2nd minute last game. It was a brilliant goal as well. AC Milan bought Higuain from Juventus and from him is expected the most. My prediction for this derby are below.
