Lazio v AC Milan – preview, prediction and lineups

Milan and Lazio: Two teams have have disappointed their supporters in this Serie A start. Traditional title contenders (especially AC Milan), both teams are now fighting for the top four.

The November 25 match will be one for the fourth place, the last place to qualify for the Champions League. Currently, Lazio is on 4th and AC Milan on 5th, with just one point difference. Obviously, Lazio comes with the first chance, but let’s not forget the statistics.

Lazio vs AC Milan Prediction

Taking into account the current form of both teams, but also statistics, a draw is most likely to happen. Without any remarkable track record in any competition, both Lazio and AC Milan will try to get the most out of this match. A fairly accurate prognosis would be 1X (Lazio wins or a draw). Interesting bets can be made on who will score goals (if there will be goals).
