AC Milan vs Lazio
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Wednesday, 24th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
Lazio lost a huge opportunity to come out on top when they squandered their home leg away with no goal. Now with the return leg at the San Siro, and Gennaro Gattuso and his boys determined to claw their way back into the limelight, things might get tough for the visitors.
The fact that both Juventus and Napoli are out of the competition hugely tips the scales in favor of the victor of this tie, to lift the crown. The reason being, the other semifinal showcases a tie between Atalanta and Fiorentina – two teams comparatively, as well as statistically, lower in quality than these two.

AC Milan vs Lazio Prediction
With Lazio failing to capitalize on their home leg, the momentum is sure with Milan. Moreover, they realize that the victor of this tie will probably be the winner of the tournament as well – a huge boost for the Milan franchise that has been wanting to get back into serious business.
H2h ties massively portray AC as the winner. They recorded 23 of the last 28 wins, and importantly, only once have they lost at home against this team. That’s a stretch of 20 years with just one loss at home.
Going on, while Lazio managed just a single goal from their last five visits to San Siro, the hosts returned 16 of the last 17 wins. Even better, Milan was unbeaten in 18 of their last 22 home ties, whereas their counterparts were winless in 11 of their last 14 attempts on the road.
Finally, Milan is on a scoring streak of seven games at home, while the last two road trips of Lazio failed to return goals. Also, keep in mind that Milan has a higher standing in the league table, and is a frontrunner to represent Italy in the next edition of the Champions League, while Lazio might not even qualify for the Europa.
Expect the hosts to go through.
