AC Milan vs Lazio: Predicted line up and result
AC Milan will host Lazio at San Siro this weekend as Rossoneri look to keep pace at the top of the Serie A table and make it three league wins in a row.
However, with a heavy fixture after the international break and a tough test ahead is the powerhouse of Roma, Stefano Pioli’s side must bring their A-game to earn three points.
AC Milan vs Lazio – Preview
Rossoneri are on a brilliant run ahead of the clash against Lazio, but the squad only has a little time to enjoy mid- week’s victory against Cagliari.
The recent wins against Hellas Verona and Cagliari have Milan back on track in Serie A following their derby defeat at the hands of Inter. Meanwhile, the Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund in Germany is looming.
That is why Stefano Pioli will have to carefully plan how the line-up looks for the game against Lazio, who won 2-0 against Torino at the Stadio Olimpico last night and finished second last season.
Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud should still start after being rested against Cagliari. There is a doubt in midfield about whether Yunus Musah or Yacine Adli will start.
The defence should be the same, meaning no place for captain Davide Calabria, while Mike Maignan should return to his spot between the posts.
Milan team news
Mike Maignan remains sidelined for Milan, with Rade Krunic adding to an injury list that already includes Ismael Bennacer and Pierre Kalulu. The Rossoneri are expected to revert to a midfield three, with one of Yacine Adli or Tommaso Pobega likely to be handed a start.
