In one of the Sunday afternoon matches of this 3rd round in the Serie A…
At the Stadio Olimpico, the current 9th placed team Lazio will face off against 4th place AC Milan, on the big match of this round in Italian football;
In the matches between these two teams, last year, we saw an AC Milan victory at home and a draw in Rome.
Both teams will be in full strength, or very close to it, with Inzaghi’s team having Felipe Anderson as their only absence,
while Vincenzo Montella may eventually not be able to count with Bonaventura and Andrea Conti, who are both still doubtful.
Now, we have the likely starting XI’s:
Lazio: Strakosha, Radu, Wallace, de Vrij, Basta, Luis Alberto, Milinkovic-Savic, Lucas Leiva, Parolo, Lulic, Immobile
AC Milan: Donnarumma, Rodríguez, Romagnoli, Bonucci, Abate, Biglia, Kessié, Çalhanoglu, Cutrone, Suso, Borini
The Laziale go into this 3rd round with an interesting start of the season, beating Juventus 3-2 in the Italy Supercup (and it is very hard to score 3 goals against Juve),
and then starting the league with a draw against newly-promoted side Spal (a match they could have won, if they were able to capitalize on their chances) and an away win against Chievo.
As for AC Milan, they have been having an excellent start to the season (probably the best of the past few years), winning all their official matches,
both in the Serie A and in the Europa League, and only conceding 1 goal in this period, which makes them a clear contender in the fight for the top spots of the Serie A on this new season.
Lazio vs AC Milan – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams tend to play a clearly offensive style (I would say that Lazio is one of the best teams in Italy on this aspect), and with Milan signing a lot of new players,
they could be slower to perfect their ability to be stronger in every level.
In any way, and considering the playing quality and offensive ability that both teams have been showing, I believe in a match with some goals.
