Sunday's recommended Bet Builder sailed in at St Mary's and I'm hoping to make a winning start to what is an action-packed week on Monday night.
AC Milan vs Roma (Monday, 19:45)
AC Milan have started the season in style and they will be desperate to maintain their 100% start when they meet Roma at the San Siro on Monday night.
Stefano Pioli's side have surged to the summit of Serie A after taking maximum points from their opening four domestic fixtures of the season and they also made light work of Celtic in the Europa League last Thursday night.
Milan's mini-revival has coincided with the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who's eye-catching displays have brought some traditional swagger back to the Rossoneri's style of play.
The Swedish superstar scored twice to help in-form Milan claim a memorable 2-1 win over arch-rivals Inter last weekend and he will fancy his chances of making the net bulge against an improving Roma outfit on Monday night.
Paulo Fonseca's men have won each of their last two Italian top-flight tussles and the capital club come into this clash off the back of a hard-fought 2-1 Europa League win away at Young Boys last time out.
Given both sides impressive form of late I'm going to steer clear of the more traditional markets here, however, there is an alternative angle that has caught my eye when making use of Bet 365‘s Bet Builder feature
The combination that I'm going to pull together to present us with a backable 4/5 punt is over one match goal, over zero AC Milan goals, over two AC Milan corners and both teams to collect at least one card.
12 of Roma's last 13 Serie assignments have featured three or more goals, while AC Milan have scored at least two goals across 15 of their last 16 league matches.
With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Roma have kept just two clean sheets across their last 16 Serie A outings, I fancy goals to flow during this San Siro showdown, and I'm more than happy to back red-hot Milan to notch up at least one strike.
With a closely-fought contest anticipated on Monday night I'm also prepared to back both teams to pick up at least one booking, and it's also worth noting that AC Milan currently sit second in the Serie A disciplinary standings.
What's more, The Rossoneri are averaging over five corners per game this term and that only adds to the appeal of siding with the above-mentioned Bet Builder – a combination that has clicked in all four of AC Milan's league matches this season.
