Match Preview: Lazio aiming for consecutive Serie A wins against AC Milan

Lazio faces a crucial Serie A encounter against AC Milan this weekend, while also keeping one eye on their upcoming Champions League second leg against Bayern Munich.

The Biancocelesti come into the match on the back of a disappointing run in Serie A, losing their last two games and falling behind the top five. However, they boast a strong recent home record, winning 11 out of their last 15 games at the Stadio Olimpico. This impressive form includes a stunning 4-0 victory against AC Milan last season, and they’ll be aiming to repeat that feat this time around.

AC Milan, on the other hand, have experienced a dip in form after their strong start to the season. They are currently winless in three games and face a battle to maintain their position in the top three. Despite their recent struggles, AC Milan have a reputation for entertaining games, with their last 11 away matches averaging a whopping 4.3 goals per game.

Key Players to Watch:

Ciro Immobile (Lazio): Despite scoring four goals and providing an assist in his last seven league meetings against AC Milan, Immobile has only emerged victorious in two of those games.

Olivier Giroud (AC Milan): The French forward has been in good form, scoring three out of his last four league goals and contributing to two goals (one goal and one assist) in the last two head-to-head meetings against Lazio.

History suggests a close encounter:

It’s worth noting that none of the last ten league meetings between these two teams have ended in a draw, with Lazio winning three and losing seven.

Prediction:

This match is likely to be a close and exciting affair, with both teams looking to get back on track. Based on Lazio’s recent home form and AC Milan’s attacking prowess, a narrow win for Lazio is a possibility. However, Milan’s ability to score goals on the road should not be underestimated.
