Milan have scored in each of the last 17 Serie A H2Hs against Lazio, averaging 1.76 goals per game.
A late top-four dash remains Lazio’s priority, despite a recent 5-2 loss, which halted their five-match winning run in Serie A. That run saw four wins arrive via a single-goal margin, but quick starts are Lazio’s trademark, as they’ve scored a league-high 11 of their 20 opening goals within the first 15 minutes. Equally impressive is Lazio’s home form, with nine straight Serie A wins and a chance to win ten in a row for only the third time in the club’s top-flight history. As well as being one of only two teams to score in every Serie A home game, Lazio have netted more than a third (10) of their 28 Serie A home goals across their last three home league games alone.
Chasing a third successive Serie A H2H win for the first time since 2009, AC Milan have fallen from the title race to a mere top-four scrap. Nonetheless, they remain a tough first-half side, managing a league-high 22 HT clean sheets and thereby topping the first-half table. Adding to that aura is Milan’s league-best away form, including four wins in a row. Notably, Milan will become the first team to win 14 of their first 16 away games in a single top-flight season if they emerge victorious here, and the ‘Rossoneri’ may well do so with a tight margin, as nearly half (six) of their 13 Serie A away wins have come via a 2-1 scoreline.
Sergej Milinković-Savić has scored three and assisted two in Lazio’s last five Serie A games. His Milan playmaker counterpart Hakan Çalhanoğlu is in rousing form, too, scoring one and assisting two in his side’s 3-2 win in the reverse fixture. Milan have scored in each of the last 17 Serie A H2Hs against Lazio, averaging 1.76 goals per game.
