Lazio vs. Milan Tips, Preview and Predictions

Lazio Milan Eurotips New

Lazio will probably need to beat Milan on Sunday if they are to claim a place in next season’s Champions League. But, with Milan chasing the scudetto, taking all three points will be a tough task for the Aquile. This promises to be a close fight at the Stadio Olimpico.

Last time: Milan has enjoyed playing against Lazio this season, winning 2-0 at the San Siro earlier in the campaign and thrashing them 4-0 in the Coppa Italia.

Lazio vs. Milan Predictions and Preview

That embarrassing 3-0 defeat in the Derby della Capitale aside, Lazio have looked one of the better sides in the league in the last few months, as Maurizio Sarri aims to lead his players into European qualification. The Champions League is not quite out of reach yet either, so this home game against league leaders Milan is crucial.

But it is just as important for the Rossoneri, of course. After two disappointing goalless draws against Bologna and Torino, Milan remained at the top of the table thanks to a 2-0 win at home to Genoa last weekend. With the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi final against Inter on Tuesday, this has been a big week yet again for Stefano Pioli’s side.

This one looks fairly well-balanced with both sides probably more afraid of losing than actually up for taking the three points.

Lazio vs. Milan full time result odds

Pioli still has injury worries – but there is nothing new for him to deal with – so he will probably look to Olivier Giroud to unsettle the Lazio backline and hope that his own team can stay tight at the back as well. Lazio has depended on Ciro immobile all season for goals but this one could end up all square. The draw is priced at 12/5.

Lazio vs. Milan both teams to score odds

Milan may not have picked up enough points as their head coach would have liked but they have also not conceded a single goal since the end of February. That makes Lazio’s job even harder but their only blank in that same time came in that defeat to Roma, so if anyone can break down the Milan defence it is the Biancocelesti. There might not be many goals on Sunday but both teams to score is priced at 8/11.

Lazio vs. Milan correct score odds

Milan have become the masters of the narrow victory – or even the goalless draw – so a high-scoring game should not be expected at the Stadio Olimpico this weekend. There is enough talent in both squads to trouble the respective keepers though, so a low-scoring draw could be the end result. That makes odds of 11/2 for a 1-1 finish look fairly attractive.

Lazio vs. Milan first goalscorer odds

If this game is to finish in a low-scoring draw, it really is only a matter of which team will score first. There has been a battle all season between Zlatan Ibrahimović and Olivier Giroud for the main job up front for Milan. But it is Rafael Leão who is the top scorer. That being said, Lazio’s Ciro Immobile is the top scorer in the entire league and his odds of 7/2 to find the net first on Sunday look like good value.
