Both AC Milan and Lazio have Euro ambitions and want to finish among the top 6 on Serie A table. Right now, Rossoneri have 3 points more, but they’ve played one game more than I Biancocelesti. What this means is that their duel on Saturday evening is of utmost importance. Which team is going to be the happier one once the ref blows the final whistle at San Siro? Find it out in AC Milan vs Lazio prediction & betting tips!
Before the start of the 32nd round, they’re at the 4th place in Serie A. And that’s the last place that leads teams directly to the Champions League next season. That’s why there are many teams that have set their eyes on that position. To stay there, AC Milan will have to win as many points as possible until the end of the season.
Unfortunately for their fans, they’re not playing very well at the moment. Actually, they won only one point in the previous four rounds. If they underperform once again, they can drop down to the 7th spot. Obviously, the game against Lazio is of huge importance.
On the bright side, they’re really good at home. Actually, they’re among the best three teams in the league when home form is concerned. And they got a pretty good record against Lazio in matches played at San Siro. Lazio have won only one of their duels in this century! Most of their clashes finished in AC Milan’s favor.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that our AC Milan vs Lazio prediction is going to be favor of the hosts just because of their head-to-head stats. We need to take into account the form of the away team as well. So, let’s talk about that a little bit!
Lazio also can’t be too proud of their recent form, although it’s a bit better than the form of AC Milan. They played 2:2 with Sassuolo in the previous round, but before that, they embarrassingly lost to Spal. And on the last day of March, they beat Inter at San Siro. Maybe they can use the experience from that game as their guideline in the match against AC Milan?
They need points, a lot of them if they want to play in Europe next season. They do have a good chance to get to a place that leads to the Champions League or at least to the Europa League, but unfortunately for them, there are several other teams that wish the same.
On the bright side, Lazio’s schedule doesn’t seem too difficult. Actually, their hardest challenge is the one taking place this Saturday. That’s why you can be sure they’re gonna do their best to win at least one point.
