Both teams come into this match having won at the weekend, but neither side has been particularly impressive in the first few weeks of the new Serie A campaign.
AC Milan have only won once at home since February, which suggests it could be tough for them to take the points here, although they do have a very good head-to-head record in this fixture.
Lazio’s win at San Siro in the Coppa Italia in 2015 bucked the trend of their unimpressive results away to AC Milan, having won just one of their 16 visits to the ground to take on Tuesday’s opponents.
But a 3-0 win over Pescara at the weekend will have boosted confidence going into this game, while AC Milan could only beat Sampdoria 1-0 as Vincenzo Montella’s men continue to stumble in Serie A.
Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between the two clubs so it is tempting to side with goals when providing free betting tips and predictions for this match.
However, Lazio have only lost twice away from home in any competition since November, so it is very tempting to go with the visitors here and that is what we’re going to do.
AC Milan are undefeated in 15 of their last 16 home matches against Lazio in all competitions, although Lazio won at San Siro in the Coppa Italia in 2015.
Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between the two clubs, with 15 goals scored in the last five games AC Milan have played against Lazio.
AC Milan : Defenders Andrea Bertolacci, Luca Antonelli, Cristian Zapata and Mattia De Sciglio are all expected to be out, with Mati Fernandez also on the lengthy AC Milan injury list.
Lazio : Lucas Biglia and Ricardo Kishna are unlikely to be available for the trip to the San Siro as a result of injuries.
