Milan started the season with high hopes of winning the title, but their hopes are all but evaporated now. Their concentration now is to qualify for the Champions League, which in itself is looking like a mountain to climb. After 21 games, the San Siro giants find themselves in seventh place (31pts, W9, D4, L8). They are 12 points behind Inter Milan in fourth place – the last qualification spot for the Champions League. The Rossoneri have been struggling this season, but a three-match unbeaten run (W2, D1) has improved the mood within the squad. Despite their summer spending spree, manager Gennaro Gattuso knows that the Champions League ambitions are now in cold storage. At home, they have been all up and down in ten games (W5, D2, L3). A victory in this AC Milan vs Lazio fixture will be a huge statement, but are the hosts up for it?
Lazio are the story of the season and continue to punch above their weight. After 21 games, they remain third in the table (46pts, W14, D4, L3) and have moved three points above their city rivals AS Roma. They come into this AC Milan vs Lazio fixture on the back of an excellent run that has seen them lose just once in their last nine Serie A fixtures (W5, D3, L1). Not just that, they have been in some scorching scoring form that has seen them notch up 20 goals in their last six games. During this process, they failed to open their account in only one game, while scoring a minimum of three goals in every game. They are pretty good on their travels too, having lost just once in 11 trips (W8, D2, L1) and scored 28 goals (avg. of 2.55 per game).
