Lazio vs AC Milan – Betting Preview
The 5-1 victory against Juventus last weekend increased Napoli’s lead in the championship race, and it now appears increasingly probable that Milan will be their lone adversary in the ensuing months.
With 18 games played going into this weekend, Stefano Pioli’s team sits 12 points behind Napoli in the Serie A standings.
The final result of Lazio’s most recent match, which they won against Bologna at home, was 1:0. The club has won two straight games and has gone unblemished in its previous three contests.
Location appears to have had little to no influence on how Lazio’s last 10 matches played out. These resulted in three wins for the visiting teams and six wins for the home team.
In their previous 10 matches, the Eagles had only one draw.
Over 2.5 goals were scored in three of Lazio’s past five games, with both teams scoring in two of those games. During these, the squad managed to keep two clean sheets and only managed to score once.
From a statistical point of view, Lazio’s last 5 outings produced an average of 2.60 goals per game.
AC Milan Preview
Milan’s performance since the beginning of 2023 has been inconsistent, with only one victory in three league games and defeats to Inter and Torino in the Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup. They are not in a good position going into this weekend’s opponents, Lazio.
The team’s previous five games have all concluded with more than 2.5 goals, with the two participating sides scoring three times in all but one of those games.
In two of those, the Rossoneri were unable to score, but they did manage to retain one clean sheet. The teams engaged in the team’s previous five matches scored 2.8 goals per game on average.
1×2 Betting Odds
A likely draw in this game is a heavy possibility, as neither club has a winning streak. Which will lead to lessen Milan’s motivation to overtake Napoli when the second half of the season gets underway.
A high scoring draw will make this game exciting for neutral fans, but a point on the board boosts Lazio’s own push for European qualification by the end of the season!
Lazio, who has 2 wins in their last 5 games, are not the favourites to win despite being the home side. Their market odds stand @ 3.21.
AC Milan must win this if they wish to keep their flickering hopes of catching up with Napoli alive! They are the favourites to win this @ 2.43.
The possibility of a stalemate and points shared, stands @ 3.60.
Total goals over/under
