THE TEAM NEWS

LAZIO

  • Lazio kept themselves in the title race with a narrow win against Torino but they had to fight back from going behind early on with the gap to Juventus remaining at four points ahead of the latest round of fixtures.
  • Torino took the lead in the fifth minute from the penalty spot and despite the hosts leading until the break, Lazio hit back soon after thanks to Ciro Immobile’s effort and the turnaround was complete when Marco Parolo struck in the final 20 minutes.
  • Lazio now face a tough clash with AC Milan as they attempt to keep pace with Juve but they will be without the services of Felipe Caicedo who will serve a one-match suspension.

AC MILAN

  • AC Milan were almost embarrassed by SPAL in their game in midweek and even though they recovered to rescue a late point, the result was not good enough for a side chasing a spot in Europe.
  • Milan found themselves two goals down before the break but were handed a lifeline when SPAL were reduced to 10 men and that allowed them to throw everything forward with Rafael Leao eventually pulling one back.
  • Time appeared to be running out for Milan but in the fourth minute of stoppage time, SPAL put through their own net with Milan needing to be much better after that performance and they may hand a start to Zlatan Ibrahimovic after he made his return from the bench in midweek.

THE PREDICTION

Lazio managed to stay in touch with Serie A leaders Juventus with a narrow win over Torino during the week but they will need to back that up against an AC Milan side with a big point to prove. Milan were held by 10-man SPAL in their midweek game and will be desperate to rectify that performance as they attempt to chase down Roma and Napoli. However, Lazio are unbeaten in their last 15 league games on home soil and they should be able to add another win to that run.
