AC Milan welcome Roma to the San Siro for a Serie A fixture on Sunday with both teams looking to bounce back from Coppa Italia defeats. Beyond the Cup defeats, Milan have fared much better in recent weeks and should have the upper hand over Roma, who tend to struggle on their travels.

AC Milan head into Thursday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Atalanta in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia. They failed to build on Rafael Leao’s opener on the stroke of halftime and were breached twice by the Bergamo club.

That defeat will be particularly disappointing to manager Stefano Pioli as AC Milan had been in good form lately. The Rossoneri had been unbeaten in their previous six matches, claiming five wins in that run, including a 3-0 victory over Empoli last time out in Serie A.

Sitting third on the table, nine points off the pace, AC Milan will be keen to crank up the pressure on the frontrunners. Despite the Coppa Italia disappointment, they will still head into Sunday’s clash with confidence having won their last four Serie A matches at San Siro.

Roma suffered the same fate as AC Milan in the Coppa Italia as they were beaten 1-0 by local rivals Lazio. They fell behind just after the restart and failed to find a way back in a typically bad-tempered derby that produced three late red cards.

Unlike their hosts, the defeat is in keeping with Roma’s recent form as they have picked up just one win from their last four matches across all competitions. They have dropped to ninth on the table and were held to a 1-1 draw by Atalanta in their previous Serie A fixture.

One of the major problems for Roma this season is a poor record on their travels having picked up just one win from their last eight matches across all competitions. Jose Mourinho’s men have been beaten five times in that run, including defeats in the last three fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it

AC Milan have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 6/5 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Roma is valued at 11/4 with BoyleSports while Unibet is offering odds of 23/10 for a draw.

Head to head

AC Milan have a 24-19 advantage with 22 draws from 65 previous matches against Roma. The Rossoneri are also unbeaten in the last six meetings, claiming four wins in that run, including a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch

Olivier Giroud was back among the goals in the win over Empoli and could be worth keeping an eye on for AC Milan. The striker has nine Serie A goals this season, including the opener in the reverse fixture and is priced at 21/10 by Paddy Power to find the net on Sunday.

Paulo Dybala has scored in two of the last three matches for Roma and is priced at 7/2 by bet365 to find the net on Sunday. Romelu Lukaku is the leading scorer for the capital club with eight goals and could also be considered in the same market at 5/2 with BoyleSports.

Anything else catch the eye?

There have been goals for both teams in the last seven meetings and a similar outcome is priced at 19/20 by bet365. The last meeting at San Siro produced over 3.5 goals which is valued at 11/4 with William Hill while Paddy Power is offering 6/5 for over 2.5 goals.

AC Milan have opened the scoring in six of the last seven meetings with Roma and could be tipped to grab the first goal on Sunday at 4/5 with Coral.
