Lazio welcomes Milan
Right now Lazio is 4th in the Serie A with 22 points, being on one point ahead of the 5th Milan. The Eagles from Rome have a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. One week ago they were behind Milan in the standings, but after the Rossoneri’s defeat against Juventus, they moved back to the Top 4.
In their last match, Lazio was unable to win, but they still won a point with a 1-1 draw during the visit to Sassuolo. Both goals in the match were scored in the first 15 minutes. Marco Parolo opened the score for Lazio, but Gianmarco Ferrari equalized for the home team. After the break, Lazio’s manager Simone Inzaghi made some changes in his starting line-up, but his team didn’t score a winning goal.
Milan is just one position behind Lazio, being 5th with 21 points. How we said, just one week ago they were in the Top 4, but their 0-2 defeat at home against Juventus made them drop down in the standings.
Gennaro Gattuso’s team tried to fight against the best team in the country, but Juve was just too good on this day. Mario Mandzukic and Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning goals for the Old Lady, while Gonzalo Higuain was sent off with a red card. This means that Higuain won’t be available for Milan against Lazio at the Olimpico. This is a huge problem for Rino Gattuso because Higuain is the team’s best striker at the moment.
These are our thoughts about the Serie A derby clash between Lazio and Milan. Good luck!
