Lazio vs AC Milan
Date: Tuesday, 26 February 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Roma).
Lazio are going to face Milan in the first leg match of the Coppa Italia semi-finals on Tuesday evening.
Home side is fighting for their place in the European competitions for the next season, but their poor recent form saw them slipping down to the 8th place. They are now too far from challenging the top four as Milan are seven points ahead of them.
Simone Inzaghi’s side has been tight in the back, however their finishing should have been much better. Lazio are currently in a bad run as they lost three times in a row in all competitions. In the previous round, home side was better than Inter in a 2-1 win.
Milan are enjoying a very good form as they haven’t lost seven times in a row in all competitions. This positive streak launched them to the 4th position and they are one point ahead of Roma.
Krzysztof Piatek made an immediate impact as he scored five times in the same number of matches.
Milan celebrated three times in a row in Serie A and they want to go to the very finals in the Coppa Italia as well.
Their defence is one of the tightest in the league, while the visitors managed to improve their finishing a bit. Milan managed to eliminate Napoli with a 2-0 victory in the latest round.
Lazio vs AC Milan: Head-to-head
Their latest head to head clashes has been tight ones and in the last six encounters these two teams managed to snatch just a win each.
Those matches were low-scoring ones and the crowd couldn’t see more than two goals in the last three occasions.
The latest away victory took place back in 2015 when Milan celebrated a 3-1 victory at Stadio Olimpico.
Lazio vs AC Milan: Prediction
Another tight clash is ahead of us as this is the only chance for both teams to challenge the domestic trophy for this season. Therefore, we are expecting a very close first-leg match which might end with a draw.
Both sides haven’t been too productive so far in the season and they are going to take a bit cautious approach to this game. Since their latest head to head clashes have been low-scoring ones, we shouldn’t expect to see more than two goals in total.
