Last time: Ciro Immobile opened the scoring before team-mate Bastos put through his own net. The visitors on the night pushed for the winner after the break and deservedly came away with the spoils after Joaquin Correa’s decisive strike.
Lazio vs. Milan Predictions and Preview
Lazio recovered from an early Andrea Belotti penalty to keep their title hopes alive on Matchday 29. The Biancocelesti came away with all three points against Torino courtesy of strikes from Immobile and Marco Parolo and proved they can also win ugly.
Inzaghi is blessed with a squad brimming with attacking talent with 29-goal Immobile leading from the front. The Italian is often paired with Felipe Caicedo up top with any two of Sergej Milinković-Savić, Luis Alberto and Joaquin Correa starting in midfield but often finding themselves in the opposition’s box for large parts of a match.
The giant Serbian has rediscovered his very best form this term and will command a sum in the region of €100m if he does depart the eternal city this summer. The Biancocelesti are 29/20 to emerge triumphant and the draw is 23/10.

Travelling party Milan have coped extremely well in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The talismanic Swede took his place on the bench away at SPAL on Wednesday after three months out with an Achilles injury.
In his place has been Ante Rebic who has flourished in an unfamiliar role. The winger by trade has operated as the side’s spearhead and will almost certainly see his loan move made permanent at the end of the current season. The 2018 World Cup finalist is 13/2 to break the deadlock and continue his fine form this calendar year.
Theo Hernandez is 9/2 to notch anytime and his battle with fellow marauding full-back Manuel Lazzari will be a fascinating watch. Milan are 2/1 to chalk up their first win at Stadio Olimpico since 2015.
One to watch for Lazio: Correa is 13/2 to repeat his exploits from November. The Argentine has lost his place in the side but is highly thought of in Rome and has already topped his goal tally from last year.
One to watch for Milan: Theo Hernandez won a penalty against the Giallorossi with one of his trademark runs and loves to get forward. The PSG target has seven goal contributions to his name from left-back and is an attractive 9/1 in the same final scorer market.
Long shot: The squads have played out some thrillers over the years and with both in good form, the latest instalment promises to be must watch. A draw for the Rossoneri, led by former Lazio boss Pioli, would not be the worst result, but it would seriously dent the Scudetto hopes of the Aquile. A 2-2 outcome is 12/1.
