Serie A’s big fixture this weekend is a clash between two giants as struggling Milan host a resurgent Lazio at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday. Simone Inzaghi’s side lead the Rossoneri by 15 points in the standings but this represents a massive test of their top four credentials.

Milan v Lazio Predictions and Preview
Gennaro Gattuso has guided his side to back-to-back to victories in Serie A, a feat the club had not achieved since September.
However, the Milanese giants remain seventh in the league table and a massive nine points off the top five, and 15 from Sunday’s opponents Lazio.
Inzaghi’s team have been a revelation so far this season and are the entertainers in the league – no club has scored more than them (56) in the division so far this campaign.
That is over double the amount of league goals from Milan this season (27), who still sit with a negative goal difference in January.
Despite this state of affairs, the home side are priced as favourites to win this game at 6/4 with an away victory to be found at 21/10 and a draw available at 5/2.
The Rome-based club were recently held to draws by 4th-placed Inter and Atalanta, in 8th, in tricky away games and that could be a likely outcome of this game.
Milan have managed only four goals in their last five outings and a Lazio victory to nil is priced at an attractive 5/1.
One to watch for Milan: Suso has seven goals in total for Milan this season and is the club’s top scorer in Serie A this season with five. He is available at 3/1 to score anytime here.
One to watch for Lazio: Ciro Immobile has been in devastating form this season, netting 20 league goals in 19 appearances including a hat-trick in this game earlier in the season. Is priced at 1 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Ciro Immobile hit a hat-trick in in September and scored four goals at SPAL two matchdays ago, he is available at 20/1 to score a hat-trick in this fixture.
