AC Milan vs Roma Prediction & Analysis
Milan recorded a 2-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Empoli. They had scored two or more goals in three of their past six games, and only once have they failed to score at home since May of 2021.
Taking into account these observations, as well as past h2h stats, expect a goal-fest this Thursday at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Mourinho’s Roma, meanwhile, have endured some troubles on the road this season, losing on five of their nine away trips.
Serie A’s winter break has benefited Stefano Pioli’s Milan more than most; having seen their title challenge falter in the face of a genuine injury crisis, the Rossoneri hope to return to something approaching full strength for Thursday’s clash, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ante Rebic and Rafeal Leao recovering well.
