LAZIO v AC MILAN BETTING PREVIEWLazio started their Serie A season with a 0-0 draw at home to newly promoted SPAL and a scrappy 2-1 win away at Chievo. Prior to that, the Biancocelesti recorded a dramatic 3-2 win over Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana, the Italian football curtain raiser. They are seeking to build on last season's fifth-placed finish under impressive coach Simone Inzaghi and they are ahead in their project compared to the Rossoneri. Direct encounters between Lazio and Milan are very evenly matched - in the last 12 league matches both sides have won four and there has been four draws.
Keita Baldè has moved to AS Monaco and Felipe Anderson will not be available. As a result Milinkovic-Savic will play as trequartista behinf the lone striker Ciro Immobile in a 3-5-1-1 starting system. Senad Lulic and Dusan Basta will play as wing backs while Wallace, Stefan Radu and Stefan De Vrij will form the three man defense. Lucas Leiva will star as playmaker with Luis Alberto and Marco Parolo on his flanks in the middle of the park. The new signing Nani is expected to start from the bench.
The new look AC Milan side has made a good start to this Serie A season winning both league fixtures so far. The Rossoneri opened their campaign with a 3-0 away win at Crotone and then beat Cagliari at home (2-1). Meanwhile, thay have also secured their partecipation in Europa League by hammering CS Universitatea Craiova and KF Shkendija in the UEL qualifiers. So far, it has been pretty smooth sailing for Vincenzo Montella’s men, but they have been largely unchallenged. The last five meetings between Lazio and AC Milan have seen both teams score and the same could happen on Sunday.
Lucas Biglia seems to be back at full fitness after playing for Argentina during the international break and will partner Riccardo Montolivo and Franck Kessiè in midfield. As a consequence, Hakan Calhanoglu could move up front and replace Fabio Borini in attack, where Suso and Patrick Cutrone are favourites over Andrè Silva and Nikola Kalinic for the starting berths. Giacomo Bonaventura and Andrea Conti will probably not travel to Rome as they are recovering from their injuries.
