Milan vs Lazio: Now that Serie A’s schedule was already fixed with the matches that had been postponed, there are no more doubts.
Lazio is in 3rd place, already having gained some distance over Inter Milan and AS Roma, asserting their position on the fight for a spot in the Champions League.
But, with this weekend’s match, they will have a good test to see if they are consistent contenders.
AC Milan is far from being a team capable of terrorizing an opponent like the Roman Eagles, but they are a team that has been showing some ability of improvement and, at home, they might end up giving a little help to their city rivals.
AC Milan´s preoccupations are related with the possibility of being left out of the European competitions yet again, in case they don’t recover from the poor moment of form that has been affecting the team, especially in the Serie A.
The two wins they have in 2018 allow them to have some confidence, despite having been insured, by the slimmest of margins, against Crotone and Cagliari. Lazio’s level is, obviously, very superior.
For Lazio, they are already unbeaten for 7 matches and the 3 victories they have in the year of 2018 stand out as proof of the difference in terms of quality to their opponents.
5-2 against Spal, 5-1 against Chievo and 3-0 against Chievo are numbers that scare any defence that has to face the “Laziale” attacking front.
In Milan, they will have a good opportunity to assert themselves regarding their presence on a higher level of Italian football.
AC Milan vs Lazio – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Thinking that Lazio might still put up a fight for the title won’t be such a crazy thought.
But, in any way, in order to ensure they finish in the top 3, it is fundamental for them to keep gaining points and distance over the competition.
For AC Milan, home matches will also be essential for them to recover ground to the European spots. But only one of these two teams can come out on top here.
