The 2-1 win over Inter Milan over the weekend put AC Milan just one point behind the league leaders in the title race. The Rossoneri had to come from behind to get the win and show their resilience during tough matches. This reflected AC Milan’s good performance against the big rivals in Serie A this season. Their next opponent is another top Serie A club so the hosts will be hoping to continue with this trend so that they can make it to the next level.
The Coppa Italia has not been a source of success for AC Milan for a long time. The last time they reached the final was 19 years ago. Nevertheless, they have reached the semi-finals in four of the last six seasons. This should give them hope that they will make it past Lazio in this quarter-finals match. Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still missing, but Olivier Giroud proved in the last game that he can win matches for the team.
Lazio come into this match on a good run of form, with 4 wins, 3 draws, and just one loss in their last 8 matches. The 3-0 win over Fiorentina in their last match marked the fourth consecutive match in which they have kept a clean sheet, which is a bit unusual since they are not known for keeping clean sheets. Most of their matches have goals for both sides.
Lazio have a better record in the Coppa Italia than AC Milan in recent years. The Rome outfit has reached the finals 5 time in the last 13 years and won the cup three times during that time. They eliminated AC Milan in the semi-finals of the 2019 edition and will be confident of another victory when the two teams lock horns in this year’s quarter-final match-up.
