Lazio vs AC Milan 1 November 2015: Serie A Previews and Predictions
1 November 2015/ 1545 ET
After an interesting midweek of football action in Italy, Serie A lovers will now shift their attention to the weekend and the marquee game between Lazio and AC Milan. Both teams have plenty of history in the competition and a win will be on the mind of both managers.
AC Milan will come into this game with some confidence after two straight wins against Sassuolo and Chievo. This team still has some major problems in the midfield and defense but at least they have found a way to win which is a very important attribute. In addition to that, the attacking players are all in terrific form. Carlos Bacca, Luiz Adriano, Alessio Cerci and Giacomo Bonaventura have all had phenomenal weeks and every AC Milan fan will hope this form continues. In addition to this, the defense will have some added confidence after keeping their first clean sheet of the season. Things are a long way from perfect for the Rossoneri but at least things are heading in the right direction.

Lazio on the other hand are coming into this game with a point to prove. This side made it into Europe last year with a very convincing Serie A campaign but have not had the best start to this season. This team may sit in sixth place at the moment but they have lost 2 of their last 3 games in Serie A and will be desperate to win at home.
This match will have a lot of action and the game will be decided by how well AC Milan play defensively. We know that the Milan attack will give them a chance to win but it will be down to the defenders to keep out the likes of Miroslav Klose and the other attacking options that the Rome based side have.
Lazio go into this game as huge favourites but I don’t think they have been playing well enough to get the three points. I think that AC Milan is more likely to win then Lazio are but it should be a very close game. AC Milan are very good value at 2.75 and I think that placing a Draw No Bet on them to win is a good option. I also think this game might be high scoring due to AC Milan and their defensive problems so over 2.5 goals is also value.
