Milan is currently en route to the semi-finals of the Champions League this season, aiming to defeat Inter. However, their disappointing draw against Cremonese on their last match threatened their chances for the next season. Fortunately, even if they are at the sixth in the league table, a win here is enough for them. Since they have 58 points right now, a win would give them 61 points, and will be at the fourth. The problem with Milan recently is that, they lack an in-depth squad recently. On their last match, Olivier Giroud, Rafael Leao, and Sandro Tonali are not enough to secure a win. If they won on their last match, that will just be their third win in their nine Serie A matches. Additionally, in their last five matches in the league, they already recorded four draws. They can no longer continue this style if they are aiming for a spot in the top four.

Milan are fortunate as they will have Fikayo Tomori back, as he will be returning from suspension. However, Tommaso Pobega, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, are still missing in this game, due to their injuries.

Lazio on the other hand is coming into this match from a 2-0 win against Sassuolo on their last match. With that, they were able to climb at the second spot of the league table with 64 points across their names. Considering Lazio’s spot in the league table, they are most likely to enter the Champions League. On their last match, it was Felipe Anderson who gave his squad the lead. He is then followed by Toma Basic, who sealed the win for Lazio on their last match. That win is important for them, as they are from a back-to-back defeats against Torino and Inter. Although they are likely for a top four spot, Lazio wants to widen their lead in the contest. This is to secure their spot in the second of the league table. This is not impossible though, as they are doing well all season, despite their results recently.

Danilo Cataldi is still Lazio’s main injury concern, as he is still recovering from his calf problem. Alessio Romagnoli on the other hand returns for Lazio, after serving a ban.

Prediction:

AC Milan (1.0)
Odds: 0.93
