Lazio will host Milan at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome for the latter’s first of five Serie A ‘cup finals’ as they chase their first Scudetto title in ten years. This crunch clash will kickoff at 00:15 IST on April 25th, and the away side have more to lose if they fail to get the needed result on the night.

Lazio have already lost two competitive matches against Milan this season and could not find a way past Torino in their last Serie A outing. Milan received a reality check after losing 3-0 to Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia semi-finals. They will need to reinvent themselves as they approach their first of five crunch clashes in their search for a Serie A crown.

Teams Status

Here is the latest form and team news from Lazio and AC Milan:

Lazio Form and Team News

Maurizio Sarri’s men are well placed to secure a finish in the top 6 for the third season in a row but remain a long way off the Serie A elite, as they have struggled to impose themselves in matches where they have been pre-match outsiders.

Although they are the second-best goalscorers in Serie A, only three less than Inter, Lazio find themselves in 6th position, level on points with Fiorentina, who have played a game less. They have lost nine games this season in which they came in as underdogs. If Lazio are to defeat Milan, they will hope Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile rises to the occasion.

Spain internationals Patric and Pedro are sidelined with varying injuries and will miss Milan’s visit to the capital.

AC Milan Form and Team News

After their humbling in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, AC Milan can now turn their attention to securing a first Serie A title in ten years. They are two points above city rivals, Inter, who have played a game less. Milan have been solid in recent weeks and remain unbeaten in their last nine matches with six wins and three draws.

All five remaining fixtures for AC Milan are against teams in the top half of Serie A, and while they can only look forward to other fixtures, they have a positive record against Lazio in their last five matches (four wins and one loss). Notably, their last loss away in Serie A came against Fiorentina in November.

Alessandro Florenzi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Simon Kjaer will miss the trip to the capital as they are sidelined with injuries. Also, Alessio Romagnoli is doubtful to feature against Lazio.

Tipster’s Angle

The last time Milan paid a visit to Lazio, they lost by three goals to nil. AC Milan are the in-form team by a considerable distance, but Lazio will certainly give them a run for their money. Milan have the superior record head-to-head in the last five games, winning four and drawing one. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.26

Five of the last five meetings between Lazio and AC Milan have had multi-goal results, so we expect at least two goals in this fixture. Lazio have scored more goals in the league than any other team except Inter Milan, and AC Milan have a title race on their hands. Over 1.5 goals is available on the sportsbook at 1.26 odds.

Tip: AC Milan to Win or Draw @ 1.43

AC Milan have already beaten Lazio twice this season, scoring six goals without a reply, and will look to do the double in the Serie A over their hosts. AC Milan have not failed to take at least one point in their last nine matches, so we expect them to put in a similar performance against Lazio. AC Milan to win or draw is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.43 odds.


Lazio will host Milan and hope to dent their rivals’ title quest while strengthening their hold on a top-six finish. AC Milan have their fate in their hands, knowing that they need to win all remaining five fixtures to claim the league title.
