Lazio vs AC Milan – Betting Preview
With a win over Lazio on Tuesday, AC Milan will want to close the significant gap to league leaders Napoli.
By defeating their opponents at Stadio Olimpico, the hosts would move one point behind their rivals in the Serie A standings.
Lazio hopes to improve upon their fifth-place position from Mauricio Sarri’s first campaign at the club this time around and earn a spot in the Champions League as a consequence.
Their chances of doing so were significantly increased by Juventus losing 15 points as a consequence of financial issues.
Felipe Anderson’s goal in the 33rd minute gave Sarri’s team a slim victory on Thursday. Sarri’s team defeated Bologna 1-0 in the Coppa Italia last time out to secure a quarterfinal match against Juve next month.
After losing all three of their matches against the defending champions last season, the former Napoli manager will be well aware that he will likely need a greater overall effort from his team if they are to defeat AC Milan on Tuesday.
However, under their possession-focused management, Lazio are now obviously in a later stage of their growth, and their next opponents seem to be performing at a somewhat lesser level than they did all of last season.
However, despite Napoli’s unrelenting play and a few discouraging draws, Milan is still very much in the running to win another championship.
AC Milan Preview
While their chances of keeping Serie A are still very much alive, Sarri’s old team went 12 points ahead of their closest competitors after defeating Salernitana at the weekend. This will undoubtedly be a very difficult gap to overcome at the halfway point of the season.
Although a losing streak of four games across all competitions is scarcely going to inspire confidence before their midweek journey to the capital, Stefano Pioli and his players can only concentrate on themselves.
I Rossoneri lost to city rivals Inter Milan 3-0 last week in the Italian Super Cup and were just eliminated from the Coppa Italia at home to Torino.
They also lost ground on Napoli in Serie A after two straight 2-2 draws against Roma and Lecce.
Pioli will have his sights set on getting through that while solidifying their place in the top four before looking to pursue Luciano Spalletti’s high-fliers over the upcoming months.

This matchup between two of Italy’s top clubs, Lazio vs Milan, could be exciting since both managers are focused on maintaining possession and employing attacking strategies.
Milan has always been a formidable danger in transition on the road, so Immobile’s injury may be crucial in determining the outcome. We may thus anticipate Pioli’s team picking up a significant road victory!
