AC Milan vs SS Lazio Match Preview

Home » AC Milan vs SS Lazio Match Preview

Milan earned their first win under Stefano Pioli last week and they would be looking to build on that 4th win of the season and see if they can achieve their goal of finishing inside the top four by the end of the season.

Lazio is doing better than their hosts in the league this season and earned yet another win when the trashed Torino 4-0 in midweek.

Milan is currently 3rd on the league table with 13 points, 6 points stand between them and the top four and they know they have to start winning games of this nature to reach that position.

Lazio is currently 5th on the league table and can go up to 4th with a win here if other results go their way. The visitors are below city rivals, AS Roma and would feel they can topple them this weekend as the Romans face Napoli.

Team News

Milan would be without the services of Mattia Caldara and Ricardo Rodriguez, they otherwise have a healthy team.

Lazio has a healthy team as well apart from Silvio Proto who has missed the last 4 games while Francesco Acerbi could be suspended for their next game should he picks up another yellow card here.

Head to Head

Milan has the advantage when it comes to h2h records between these sides. They have met each other 52 times before now and Milan has won 23 of those games while Lazio has won just 9 and the others have ended in draws.

Team Form

Milan has been very inconsistent since the start of the season and their recent games show a side that needs to up their game. Their 1-0 win over SPAL was their first win in three games.

Lazio has started the season better than their host in this game. The Rome side has lost just one of their last 7 games and come here on a run of two consecutive wins and 5 games without losing in the league.

Betting Preview

Milan’s problems have been longstanding but the club seems to think a new manager would always bring back the glory days. Stefano Pioli is the latest manager they have named to help them get into the top four but he just got his first win.

Lazio is a much more stable side and keeps making giant strides every season. They come here without a defeat in their last 5 league games, they have the extra motivation to topple Roma with a win in this game and they would want to play their part in that well.

Milan has struggled to score goals this season but their defence hasn’t been as solid as you’d expect. All but one of their last 5 league games have ended in Over 2.5 Goals scored, they won just one of those games despite playing twice at home in that period.

Lazio comes with lots of goals in them. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in all of their last 7 games in all competitions, they have also scored twice in their last two away games in the league and lost none.

Ciro Immobile is in fine goal scoring form and is the perfect pick for anytime goalscorer in this game.

With Lazio scoring lots of goals and Milan also not letting anyone score all the goals here, both teams to score seems a perfect bet for this game.

Suggested Bets

Both Teams to Score/Yes @ 8/11

Ciro Immobile anytime scorer @ 7/5

Over 2.5 goals @ 10/11
