Draw 5 – 1-1 – 11/2
Roma’s start to the campaign will raise some concerns for Mourinho as his side have picked up just one point from their first two league games.
While it is not a crisis at this stage, Mourinho will need to use his experience to get Roma back on track, starting with Stefano Pioli’s home Milan this weekend.
Milan’s form has been strong in recent weeks with convincing wins over Bologna and Turin to start the new season.
But the feeling remains that Mourinho will try to slowly claw his way out of the situation, and both league meetings between the sides last season ended in draws.
As Roma look to gain a foothold in Serie A, they may struggle to score goals. They have played only two of three games so far in 2023-24. Milan are looking impressive in front of goal but this is their toughest test so far this season and Pioli may be forced to change his approach at Roma.
A draw in this tie may not have a significant impact on either team until September, but it will be an important step forward for Roma ahead of the international break.
Should Mourinho enter the international window following the defeat, the pressure could mount. A draw, or even a win, would give him some breathing room at the Stadio Olimpico.
A draw in the capital would end Milan’s 100 per cent league record so far this season, but it will not be disastrous for Pioli as he plans to start the Champions League group stage next month.
