AC Milan vs Lazio Preview

AC Milan vs Lazio

Competition – Coppa Italia

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 31st January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

AC Milan and Lazio meet again for the second time in as many games after their Serie A match at the weekend.

They are both playing for a ticket to the Coppa Italia final next month.

Milan’s win over Lazio was their first win over a side inside the top five in the Serie A this season and their fans will be hoping they can build from that success and win here.

Milan have been under-performing this season but winning the Coppa Italia would go a long way to make up for missing out on a Champions League place.

After their win over Inter in the last round of this competition, they have taken 10 points from a possible 12 and they have won their last 3 games on the bounce.

Lazio may have lost their last match to Milan but the Rome based side remain one of Italy’s best teams and they will be looking to bounce back with a win here.

Ciro Immobile’s return to action is a major boost for them and they will be looking to continue their good goal scoring form in this game.

Lazio have scored 20 goals in their last 21 visits and they have scored an average of 2.42 goals per game away from home this season also.

Lazio have not won 17 of their last 18 games against Milan making this a very difficult tie for them on paper at least.
