In the 27th round of Serie A Lazio will meet Milan at Olimpico Stadium. Lazio surprised many, winning against Bayern Munich at the first play-off match of UEFA Champions League and now is aimed to improve its situation in the championship. The main goal is to qualify for the Conference or Europa League, facing serious competition from Roma and Atalanta, who are also fighting for these vacant spots. Lazio also should not forget about Fiorentina and Napoli who are very close behind and waiting for the capital club to lose points. Milan, despite recent setbacks in its game, is still having a comfortable advantage over the fourth-placed Bologna (5 points) and the most the team can achieve is to fight with Juventus for silver medals (4 points difference). The upcoming match sees Milan in not its best spirits and Stefano Pioli is desperately trying to return the Rossoneri back on the winning track.

Lazio vs. AC Milan Preview 

Lazio Preview

Lazio, after a sensational win against Bayern, was expected to get a serious morale boost, but lost to Bologna (2-1) in the 25th round. However, the Biancocelesti got back on track, winning a hard match against Torino (2-0). The upcoming match will be held in Olimpico, on which the capital team looks confident - besides the loss to Bologna, Lazio lost only 1 match against Inter (0-2) since the beginning of the season. The last head to head match on Olimpico was a night to remember for Lazio fans, when Biancocelesti crushed Milan with a 4-0 on the scoresheet. Mauricio Sarri is eager to repeat the results, especially given the feverish Milan game recently.

AC Milan Preview

Milan is on a winless streak for 3 matches, drawing with Atalanta (1-1), and losing to Monza (4-2) and Rennes (3-2). Both of the losses were in the away games, raising concerns about the team’s looming crisis, given that before the match with Monza, Milan had 3 consecutive away games. The most pressing issue for the fans and Pioli is the amount of conceded goals - in the last 4 away matches, Milan conceded 11 goals. Within these considerations, Pioli still shuffles the defensive lines, trying to find the optimal combination for the decisive part of the season. The match against Atalanta saw a bit of improvement in the game and Atalanta did not have as many chances as it was expected. However, the match against Lazio will be the main test answering the question, whether Milan is in the away crisis or not.

Betting Tips for Lazio vs. AC Milan

Draw at Least in One Half - Yes

Both teams are not in stable condition and do not show cohesiveness throughout the distance. Approaching this match, both Milan and Lazio are well aware of their own and rival’s weaknesses, while Sarri and Pioli are great tacticians, aimed at neutralising the opponents rather than overpowering them. Given this consciousness and caution, it is well-expected that the draw will be on the scoresheet at least in one half. For this Lazio vs. AC Milan tip, Unibet gives odds of 1.51.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams have players who can decide individual episodes ruthlessly, including Rafael Leao, Ciro Immobile and Felipe Anderson. Lazio has scored in every last 10 matches in Olimpico, except only matches with Inter (0-2) and Napoli (0-0). Milan also has good statistics in this regard - 28 goals in 13 away matches, with the latest thrillers against Monza (4-2), Frosinone (2-3) and Udinese (2-3). It is hard to expect that the match will end without both teams scoring given these pre-match layouts. Lazio vs. AC Milan odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.82.

First to Score - Lazio

Lazio is first to score in the last 4 out of 5 matches, indicating the active start of the match, which was also a Sarri’s sign in his previous teams. The matches in Olimpico are always favourable for the Biancocelesti, thanks to passionate Lazio fans who are well-known in the football world. In the last three head to head matches on Olimpico, Lazio opened the score and given the weak defensive play of Milan players, this may be the case in this clash as well. Unibet gives 2.19 for this Lazio vs. AC Milan prediction.
