Milan vs. Roma Predictions and Preview
Milan may hold fourth place but have failed to win since March 9. The Rossoneri have lost three and drawn one over the last four weeks and have work to do to ensure they claim a Champions League berth.
On paper, Gennaro Gattuso’s men have a reasonable final run of fixtures, with clashes against Frosinone, Bologna and Parma expected victories if the Rossoneri play to their ability.
Krzysztof Piatek netted in the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Juventus, tying him with Fabio Quagliarella in the goalscorer standings with 21 efforts and the Pole has already scored against Lazio this campaign.
The 23-year-old struck for former club Genoa in the 4-1 victory for Lazio in September and has proven he is no flash in the pan since his winter move to the Italian giants. Piatek is 10/3 to open proceedings while Milan are 8/5 to get back to winning ways.
Visitors Lazio hit a last gasp equaliser in the clash with Sassuolo. The Aquile were 2-1 down until Senad Lulic’s 95th minute effort and the point could be decisive at the end of the season. From a goalscoring point of view, Simone Inzaghi’s troops have not hit the heights of last term, bagging a whopping 89 goals.
In contrast, Lazio have half this total to date and the burden has been shared across the squad rather than solely on Ciro Immobile’s shoulders. Immobile is 4/1 to register first while the Aquile are 17/10 to clinch victory, while the draw is 9/4.
One to watch for Milan: Samu Castillejo may get the nod ahead of Fabio Borini and offers decent pace and trickery. The Spaniard is 14/1 in the last scorer market.
One to watch for Lazio: Sergej Milinkovic-Savic shot to fame last year but made a subdued start to the 2018-19 campaign. The attacking midfielder now looks back to his best and is 10/1 to strike the final effort of the showdown.
Long shot: After weathering the storm, the pressure is creeping up on Gattuso again and the Diavolo legend is aware of his objective. Failure to land fourth or better is likely to see the Italian lose his job and the players are likely to be fired up for the occasion. A 3-1 triumph in favour of Milan is 24/1.
