AC Milan are coming on the back of just one win in the last four league games and their Champions League qualification hopes have faded after finding themselves sixth in the league table with third placed Roma at a 11 point distance. The pressure is piling upon head-coach Sinisa Mihajlovic as President Silvio Berlusconi want to see his club playing Europe’s top flight football next season.

Lazio were comprehensively beaten by Czech side Sparta Prague on mid-week’s Europa League clash by 3-0 and their head-coach Stefano Pioli is on the verge of getting sacked as their domestic form is also not that great. If reports from Italy are to be believed, he may well get the axe if Lazio loss against Milan on Sunday night.

AC Milan vs Lazio: Prediction

Lazio are on a poor run of form and may be self-shocked by the European night humbling by Sparta. Their recent away form and head-to-head record against Milan in Serie A are all pointing towards a comfortable result for the Rossoneri.
