Team News: Lazio
Danilo Cataldi (Ankle Injury), Lucas Leiva (Knee Problems), Bobby Adekanye (Muscular problems), Senad Lulic (Ankle Surgery) and Luiz Felipe (Calf Injury) won’t be playing for Lazio gaffer Simone Inzaghi.
It’s our opinion that i Biancocelesti will probably line up in a 3-5-2 formation for this one, utilising Thomas Strakosha, Patric, Francesco Acerbi, Stefan Daniel Radu, Jony, Marco Parolo, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Luis Alberto, Manuel Lazzari, Joaquin Correa and Danilo Cataldi.
Team News: AC Milan
Milan boss Stefano Pioli has some current player fitness concerns. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Disrupted Calf Muscle) and Mateo Musacchio (Ankle Surgery) will miss out on this game.
We believe i Rossoneri will likely make use of a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Davide Calabria, Matteo Gabbia, Alessio Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez, Ismaël Bennacer, Franck Yannick Kessie, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Paquetá, Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic.
We’re of the view that AC Milan will have to perform well to see themselves scoring against this Lazio team who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
Therefore, we predict a very even match with a 1-0 winning score for Lazio at full-time.
We’ll see what happens.
