BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday evening, Milan host Lazio at the San Siro in Serie A, as both teams look to continue good starts to the campaign.
Stefano Pioli’s team have kicked off their Serie A campaign with a 1-0 win at Sampdoria and a 4-1 home victory over Cagliari at the San Siro. Their good early season form means that the Rossoneri are unbeaten in seven league games, having recorded six wins in the process.
Milan have built that good recent league record on defensive foundations, as Pioli’s team has kept clean sheets in six of their seven unbeaten matches.
The Rossoneri’s recent home record in Serie A has been inconsistent, as they have won just three of their last nine games at the San Siro.
Like their hosts, Lazio have kicked off their league campaign with two straight wins, winning 3-1 at Empoli and beating Spezia 6-1 at the Stadio Olimpico. Prolific striker Ciro Immobile has played a key role in their opening two wins, scoring four times.
Their early season high-scoring encounters are not following the same low-scoring trend as last season, as their final five league matches of last season all produced under 2.5 goals.
The win at Empoli on the opening weekend of the season ended a poor away run for Lazio. Not only had the visitors suffered four straight away defeats in the Italian top-flight, but they had also conceded at least two goals in each of the losses.
Milan have some big absences for this clash. French striker Olivier Giroud could miss out due to illness, while Franck Kessie and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are expected to be ruled out through injury.
Lazio may well be missing star striker Ciro Immobile, who is struggling with a muscle issue. Bobby Adekanye and Manuel Lazzari could also miss the game through injury.
Both teams are potentially without their first-choice strikers. However, we are backing the home team to come out on top in a high-scoring encounter.
