AC Milan vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Milan.
AC Milan look to keep hold of the top spot into 2021 as they host Lazio on Wednesday, seeing Inter Milan close the gap but beating Sassuolo (1-2) over the weekend to keep hold of a point between them. They were denied by Parma (2-2) and Genoa (2-2) in thrilling clashes beforehand but will be happy with goals that keep coming.
Rossoneri will now want to build on the performances too and we feel we’re in for a thrilling contest we’ve been used to in head-to-head clashes against Lazio. Interestingly enough, Pioli’s men have lost on their consistency at this ground and kept delivering on the road, which could be worrying but will also have them very motivated to show off now.
Lazio, on the other hand, beat Napoli (2-0) over the weekend and bounced from a three-match unbeaten streak. They’ve been denied by Club Brugge (2-2), Benevento (1-1), and were even beaten by Verona (1-2) along the way. Biancocelesti were conceding goals and this will be worrying for Inzaghi despite an important clean sheet now behind them. They will want to challenge the top 6 but we don’t see them causing an upset in Milan.
AC Milan vs Lazio Head-to-head
- AC Milan beat Lazio (0-3) at Olimpico as the sides last met in July 2020.
- We’ve seen three or more goals in both of the last two clashes, as Lazio snatched a 1-2 win at this ground beforehand.
- Biancocelesti have been no strangers to points in Milan (with one loss in the last four trips here) but now go against the odds.
AC Milan vs Lazio Prediction
We will back AC Milan to keep hold of the top spot and secure all three points on Wednesday. They boast quite possibly the best run they’ve had in a decade and we feel Rossoneri will be able to capitalize despite a strong challenge, as we go for a Home win priced at 2.20.
