AC Milan Recent Form & Team News

AC Milan responded to a stalemate with Genoa with a 2-1 victory at Sassuolo. With those three points, the Rossoneri stayed one point ahead of their eternal rivals Inter. They went to a 25th Serie A game without loss (W18, D7). None of the previous five victories in that span have seen Milan allow a goal from open play in the first 30 minutes.

Each of Milan’s previous four SA victories at San Siro was a one-sided affair, as Milan kept the clean sheet in all. Considering that April 2016 is the last time Milan lost a game at home in the league after opening the scoring first, netting the first goal is crucial. Milan collected 26 points (of a possible 30) when they scored the opening goal in the last ten home matches.

Player to watch: Rafael Leão’s first-minute strike (6 seconds) against Sassuolo is the fastest in Serie A history. Interestingly, each of his 11 goals before that came in the second 45 minutes!

Stefano Pioli cannot count on Zlatan Ibrahimovic (convalescence), Matteo Gabbia (knee), and Ismael Bennacer (thigh). Franck Kessie (suspension), Simon Kjaer (muscle), and Sandro Tonali (muscle) are also unavailable.

Lazio Recent Form & Team News

Lazio are visiting San Siro following a comfortable 2-0 win over Napoli on Sunday night. The Eagles got to an early lead through Ciro Immobile. He scored first in the opening 25 minutes in each of Lazio’s previous four victories.

Although Lazio are underdogs for the first time on the road in this Serie A campaign, they are undefeated in four SA away matches (W3, D1). Their talisman striker Immobile found the back of the net in each. Ciro scored first between 15’-25’ in the previous three. In that three-game span, Lazio lead 1-0 after the opening 30 minutes.

Player to watch: Sergej Milinković-Savić joined Immobile on the scoresheet in three of Lazio’s last five SA victories on the road. SMS scored goals between the 31’-60’ third of play.

Hot stat: Only one of the previous 16 SA H2H duels has seen the second half separate the rivals by a difference of over 1.5 goals.

Simone Inzaghi will be without Francesco Acerbi (thigh), Mohamed Fares (muscle), and Lucas Leiva (muscle). Senad Lulic (ankle) and Silvio Proto (arm) are also injured.
