Coppa Italia action on Tuesday from the San Siro as Milan play host to Lazio. Lazio hosted Milan in a Serie A game on Saturday and easily accounted for them 3-1 and that was after Milan took the lead. Lazio have been in excellent form of late, they've pushed themselves into third in Serie A and in current form they are going to be the team to watch in the league. With Klose winning back his starting spot for the big game at the weekend the all time record World Cup scoere netted a goal and was dangerous throughout. Lazio are a quality side and they will look at the cup as a winnable competition.
Milan have lost three of their last five including two at home. Inzaghi has to be feeling the pressure as the team have tumbled to tenth in the league table and really dont look capable of fighting for a Champions League or Europa league spot. Jeremy menez has been superb for Milan scoring ten in twenty. Menez is really Milan's only option up top as Honda is away on international duty and El Sharawaay and Pazzini have failed to find any sort of form this year. With Mexes getting a straight red on Saturday night against Lazio this will be the only competition he can play in for at least three games. There is a chance though that Inzaghi will leave Mexes out as his over reaction on Saturday was one of a player deeply frustrated.
Even though this is a Cup game I am going to take Lazio straight up. In my opinion this should be a coinflip and I cant take Milan as any favourite against any of the top sides in Italy. Lazio are the better side here and the value bet for me.
