Milan will look to make sure that their resurgence in the Serie A keeps ongoing, when they take on a Lazio side that need some results quickly.
Times haven’t been great for Maurizio Sarri’s side in recent weeks and just like their city rivals Roma, they also have just one win the league so far and the pressure is firmly on the ex-Juventus boss. Claudio Lotito was recently inside the side’s dressing room and he seems desperate to make sure that Lazio turn things around, especially after the recent draw against Monza.
Milan meanwhile, have recovered after the 5-1 bashing at the hands of Inter. They have beaten Verona and Cagliari since then, while putting in an impressive performance against Newcastle United in the Champions League.
A case can be made of the fact that Lazio need a win more than Milan do today, with Sarri facing a dilemma around Daichi Kamada and Nicolo Rovella. Milan meanwhile, will be boosted by the fact that Mike Maignan and Davide Calabria will return.
Here is how Sky Italia expect the two sides to line up.
Milan (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo; Loftus-Cheek, Adli, Reijnders; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Marusic, Casale, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Kamada, Vecino, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni
