AC Milan v Roma: Prediction, Tips and Odds

The quarter-final stage of the Europa League has been reached and there is a big clash at the San Siro, where AC Milan host Roma in an all-Italian affair.

Milan's hope of Serie A glory are almost mathematically over, as they sit 14 points behind leaders and city rivals Inter with just seven matches remaining, which means that European football has the club's full attention.

Roma came agonisingly close to winning the Europa League last season, losing to Sevilla on penalties in the final, but their quest for the trophy this term may come to a premature end.

AC Milan v Roma betting tips and predictions

AC Milan to win - 4/5

Milan are in red-hot form heading into this contest, having won seven games on the bounce and they look to be the chief danger to Liverpool in the Europa League outright market.

The Rossoneri have notched 17 goals during this winning streak, with seven of those coming against Slavia Prague in the 7-3 aggregate triumph in the last 16.

Stefano Pioli's side are on an eight-game unbeaten streak at home in all competitions and they should have enough to pick up the win when Roma visit on Thursday.

While Daniele De Rossi has overseen an improvement since replacing Jose Mourinho as Giallorossi boss in January, recent form has been inconsistent with two wins, two draws and a defeat from their last five outings.

Roma are without a win in their last three away assignments, while they haven't beaten Milan since October 2019.

Both teams to score - 1/1

Backing both teams to score looks like a solid play here, with Milan scoring in 29 games in a row heading into this contest, last failing to hit the back of the net against Udinese in December.

That blank against Udine is also the last time the Rossoneri failed to score at home, a run of 16 matches, but they have been susceptible in defence and have conceded in four of their last six fixtures.

Roma will be hopeful they can at least get on the scoresheet, something they have achieved in 13 of De Rossi's 15 matches at the helm.

It's also worth noting that both teams have scored in the last eight meetings between these two.

Leandro Paredes to be booked - 5/4

This could turn into a feisty affair between these two and the chances of cards being dished out looks high, with Roma midfielder Leandro Paredes expected to get one of those.

Roma have picked up a Serie A leading 81 yellow cards this season and Paredes is accountable for 13 of those from his 29 league appearances.

The 29-year-old Argentinian has also picked up two cautions in the Europa League and it would be no surprise to see his name taken again as his side look to repel Milan, who have been no saints themselves this season with 71 yellows and six reds in the Italian top-flight.
