Lazio host AC Milan at the Stadio Olimpico hoping to get a win in order to continue keeping pace with Seria A leaders Juventus all the way to the finishing line.
After a disappointing loss to high flying Atalanta in their first game back after the break, Simone Inzaghi’s side bounced back with back-to-back 2-1 wins over Fiorentina and Torino.
In what is arguably their best Seria A campaign in years, Lazio are now only four points behind leaders Juve. The Rome based outfit have played some of the best football in the league, winning 21 of their 29 league games and only losing thrice all season to sit second on the log.
Lazio have the second-best attack in the league behind Atalanta but they will have to make do without their two leading forwards, Ciro Immobile and Caicedo due to suspension.
AC Milan are in 7th place, with 43 points, which is just two points behind Napoli for the final Europa League spot. They have been pretty solid after the restart, winning two and drawing one of the three matches they have played to massively boost their push for a top-six finish.
Both Napoli and AS Roma are within touching distance in 5th and 6th place respectively. Stefano Pioli will be hoping to maintain the recent momentum to capitalize on any slip-ups from the two teams.
Lazio missing Serie A leading scorer Ciro Immobile for this crucial clash is a huge dent on their part. His 29 league goals are a major reason as to why they are where they are. That said, they have had a phenomenon season overall and have been particularly impressive at home where they are unbeaten in the 15 league games they have played at the Stadio Olimpico, winning 12 and drawing 3. They’ve in fact won 10 and drawn one of the last 11 home games. AC might feel like they have a chance here, but Lazio still have what it takes to get a favourable result. We are going with Double Chance Lazio or Draw @ 1.38 with 1xBet as our first betting tip here.
As mentioned, Lazio have had the second-best attack in the league. Their 66 total goals scored this season is only bettered by Atalanta who have scored an unbelievable 82 goals this season. Milan on their part have looked like a rejuvenated team after the restart and have scored 8 goals in their three post-break games. Both defences haven’t been particularly solid especially after the restart with Lazio failing to keep a clean sheet in all three games and AC Milan conceding in two of the three games including the 2-2 draw in the last game against second-to-last Spal. In light of this, we strongly feel that both teams will score. 1xBet betting app’s price of 1.78 is a terrific value price and we are going with it for our final tip for the game.
