Lazio: Fighting for Europa League
Recent defeats to Napoli and city rivals AS Roma highlight that Lazio is far from the elite teams in this competition but luckily for them, they still have Europe’s second-tier competition to play for. They are sitting sixth in the standings just two points behind AS Roma and they enter this clash on the back of three unbeaten games winning two in the process.
Lazio has struggled for consistency this season and was lucky to pick up a point against Torino last weekend. That said, they’ve looked impressive at times this term and will likely try to take advantage of AC Milan’s disappointment following their midweek Italian Cup semi-final defeat to city rivals and title chasers Inter.
A man to watch in the home team will be Ciro Immobile, who scored a late equalizer against Torino. He’s once again leading the top scorers’ chart with 25 goals netted this season. He’s the most consistent Italian striker in Europe and he will take this opportunity to add some more goals to his season tally.
Patric’s injury against Torino means that Luiz Felipe will replace him in the defensive line and join Francesco Acerbi. Maurizio Sarri has the rest of his squad available for this clash but is unlikely to make too many changes with Pedro struggling for full fitness. Lazio must win this clash in order to stay in the European race because Fiorentina is breathing down their neck and might leapfrog them this weekend. Still, given the circumstances and importance of the game, you should avoid the winners market so don’t include Lazio in your soccer picks and parlays.
AC Milan: Injury Crisis but Rock-Solid at the Back
Despite dropping four points in the previous three Serie A fixtures, AC Milan is still sitting 1st in the standings. It’s important to note their city rivals have a game in hand over them and if they win all their fixtures until the end of the season, they will be crowned champions. On top of that, they just lost 3-0 to Inter in the Italian Cup semifinals being knocked out of the competition.
Stefano Pioli’s team is struggling through a defensive injury crisis at the moment, with three key centre-backs sidelined. Given the need for rotation, the visitors may struggle to match Lazio’s attacking approach. Matteo Gabbia was added to the injury list by AC Milan, who’s already without Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer. Davide Calabria is expected to return to the starting lineup with Alessandro Florenzi injured, while Olivier Giroud will definitely lead the attacking line. Thanks to their rock-solid defense, the visitors have been able to secure short wins rather than outscoring their opponents. If you’re betting online you should consider all betting markets and try to make deep research.
Lazio vs AC Milan Head-to-Head
Matches between the two sides tend to be entertaining affairs, with over 2½ goals scored in four of the last six head-to-heads. Both teams are high up in the Serie A goalscoring charts but Milan is yet to concede in two mutual encounters against Lazio this season. Despite conceding three in the cup on Tuesday, Pioli’s side has the third-best defensive record in the top-flight league and has kept six consecutive clean sheets. Milan is the best road team in the league losing just one and winning 11 in 16 away games while Lazio lost just two home games scoring 36 goals in the process. The visitors are unbeaten in their last 11 Serie A fixtures while Lazio lost just one in their last six home games.

Lazio vs AC Milan Predictions
Despite playing on the road, the visitors enter this clash as slight favorites being priced at +135 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
AC Milan has played very cagey of late. They had been on a streak of eight successive matches with fewer than three goals scored before the 3-0 defeat to Inter in the midweek action. Lazio has been playing hot and cold throughout their domestic campaign but we must not forget that they are very tough to beat at Stadio Olimpico.
There’s a huge chance we see a low-scoring draw so we’re going for it with a small stake. You already know that we don’t like to bet on unders but this game has under 2½ goals written all over it.
