On the 22nd of December, AS Roma and AC Milan are going to meet in the Italian Serie A. Currently, A.S. Roma is the lowest scorer in the top-half of the Serie A table along with Cagliari, with just nine goals scored in eight games. Two of their three victories from this season took place at Olimpico, where they remain unbeaten.
On the other hand, AC Milan has won six of their last seven matches, including a run of four straight victories. However, they failed to keep a clean sheet in their most recent games, even if they are the highest scorers in Serie A.
What is really surprising is that AC Milan has beaten AS Rome just once in their past 10 meetings, and hasn’t won any away game since the 2004/2005 season. As for the last five head-to-head confrontations between the two teams, there are 3 victories for AC Milan and two goalless draws on the 7th of March 2010 and on the 8th of May 2011.
In my opinion, this is going to be a really interesting match, where the highest goal scorers from Serie A are going to meet the lowest goal scorers from Serie A, only that the highest ones haven’t won a match against their opponents in ten matches.
All in all, given the statistics, I couldn’t make a clear prediction on the winner of the match, but I am fairly sure that there will be a lot of goals scored in this encounter, regardless who wins it. I bet on Over 3 goals. I bet 6 units at 1.76. The odds I used are from IBCBET.
