Lazio and Milan are clashing at Stadio Olimpico in round 34 of the Italian Serie A. Lazio are on a nice roll, they are undefeated in their last 3 games, and they are one of the best offensive teams in the league. Milan is also undefeated in a while, they are still at the top of the table, but they got destroyed by Inter in the Coppa Italia.
Lazio has lost only 1 of their last 6 games, and because of that, they are still in the Europa League hunt. Lazio has 56 points, they have scored 65 goals, but their defense is terrible with 48 conceded goals. Lazio is now in 6th place. In their last 4 games, Lazio hasn’t kept a single clean sheet, but they have scored 7 goals in their last 3 games. Immobile is Lazio’s top goalscorer with 25 goals, while Milinkovic-Savic has added 9 goals and 9 assists. Patric is now the only injured player for Lazio. There are some hard games left for Lazio to play this season, and I’m not sure their offense will be enough to get to the Europa League, Lazio needs defense.
As I’ve mentioned, Milan got destroyed by Inter in the Coppa Italia earlier this week, and that is the trophy they can no longer win this season. As far as Serie A goes, Milan is still at the top with 71 points, but they have one game more played over Inter, and that could be crucial this season. Defensively, Milan has done a solid job this season considering they lost their best defender at the start of the season. Milan has conceded only 29 goals. When it comes to scoring goals, Milan can do a lot better than the 58 goals they have scored, but even that is good. Leao is now the leading goalscorer for Milan with 9 goals, while Ibrahimovic and Giroud have added 8 goals each. Hernandez has added 6 assists. Ibrahimovic, Castillejo, Florenzi, and Kjaer are all injured. Milan’s schedule is hard, they are playing all the strong teams, and they will need a lot of luck to win the title this season, but stranger things have happened.
This will be a fun game to watch, and I see a lot of goals in it. Lazio is a strong offensive team this season, but their defense is garbage. I want Milan to win, but it will be a hard game. I don’t think either team can keep a clean sheet here, but I do see Milan winning this game.
