Lazio v AC Milan Betting Preview
Venue: Stadio Olimpico
Channel: Sky Sports
The second semi-final of this season’s Coppa Italia sees Lazio host AC Milan following their 0-0 draw in the first-leg. Lazio have home advantage and start as favourites at 5/6 but come up against an in-form Milan side who remain undefeated in 2018.
Milan were victorious over Roma at the Stadio Olimpico at the weekend and return to the same stadium on Wednesday to try and qualify for the Coppa Italia Final. They have won seven of their last nine in all competitions, including four wins to nil in their last four games.
As for Lazio, they have picked up after a disappointing start to 2018. They have won their last three games in all competitions, including two in the league, after starting the year with three losses. One of those losses was to tomorrow night’s opponents, Milan, who beat them 2-1 at the San Siro just a month ago.
Lazio will know that they will have to win this game, unless it ends 0-0, due to the fact Milan will have the ability to score away goals, something that Lazio could not quite muster. That could be their downfall in the end and Milan’s form means they will be very confident of earning themselves a place in the final. But Lazio do have one of Europe’s most in-form striker in Ciro Immobile. He tops the scoring charts in the league with 23 and has a massive 32 across all competitions.
Only two of the last six between these two sides have seen over 2.5 goals and this one looks set to be a tense affair with so much at stake for both sides. Milan have won their last four to nil and Lazio have won their last two to nil so defensively, both have been solid. But Milan look far more confident at the moment and Lazio are yet to be tested after their recent dip in form. Looks set to be a very exciting match and could go all the way but Milan look in better shape right now.
Both managers have the luxury of fully fit squads and will no doubt be selecting their best possible XI here to ensure they make the final.
Potential Lazio Starting XI: Strakosha; Bastos, Vrij, Radu; Marusic, Parolo, Leiva, Alberto, Lulic; Milinkovic-Savic; Immobile
Potential Milan Starting XI: Donnarumma; Calabria, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Biglia, Bonaventura; Suso, Cutrone, Calhanoglu
