AC Milan vs Lazio Match Analysis & Prediction
06/05/2023 4:00 pm
At San Siro on Saturday, the two main contenders for a top-four finish in Serie A will face off when struggling AC Milan hosts second-place Lazio.
Milan is in sixth place with five games after a dismal midweek draw. Compared, their capital-city adversaries have risen to the top with seven victories in their previous 10 league games.
Even though Milan has advanced to the semifinals of the Champions League and will play Inter Milan over two legs later this month, its chances of competing in Europe’s top club championship the following season have diminished due to Wednesday’s draw with Cremonese.
Indeed, it appeared as though the Rossoneri would lose when they fell behind their local rivals in stoppage time. Still, Junior Messias scored late to rescue a point that put them two points behind Inter and level with Atalanta.
Lazio would start as the favorite against the Scudetto winners three months from now if they surprised Milan by scoring four goals from their five shots on goal at Stadio Olimpico.
The Aquile remained ahead of nearest rival Juventus in the Serie A rankings and was still on track to qualify for the Champions League after a 2-0 home win over Sassuolo midweek.
AC Milan vs. Lazio Head to head

Stefano Pioli’s starting XI should look very different from that which struggled miserably on Wednesday, with Fikayo Tomori returning from suspension and numerous more experienced talents back in the Milan lineup.
Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Tommaso Pobega are expected to miss out owing to injuries, leaving the hosts with practically a complete roster.

Alessio Romagnoli, an ex-Milan defender who has served his suspension, will most likely replace Patric in Maurizio Sarri’s lineup, with Elseid Hysaj being a strong candidate to move up from the bench.
Felipe Anderson and Mattia Zaccagni, who both scored in the rematch in January, will operate on either side of captain Ciro Immobile in the Biancocelesti’s front three.
