Lazio vs Milan

Lazio host Milan in the capital aiming to build on their early season start which saw them win the Italian Super Cup and also get a draw and 1 win from their 2 team in Serie A to start the campaign. A strong showing away from home to beat Chievo by a score of 2-1, will do wonders to build confidence back in the team as they search for a top 4 finish to qualify for the Champions League. Lazio will rely on their forwards Immobile and Cacicedo to hit on the goals against a strong Milan defense that last week leaked their first goal in Serie A. Midfielders Lulic, Lucas, Savic and possibly Nani will need to be on their A game in order to use the home crowd advantage to beat the Milan outfit.

Milan had gone on a spending spree this summer with a host of signings including Nikola Kalinic, Andre Silva, Leonardo Bonucci, Mateo Mussachio, Lucas Biglia, Franck Kessie, Hakan Calhanoglu, Andrea Conti and Ricardo Rodriguez shows how serious the new Chinese owners are to get back Milan to the glory days in the Champions League and challenging for the Series A title. Milan last time around were succumbed to a lot of pressure against Cagliari who managed to find the back of the net against Milan at home; and that will be on the back of their mind heading into this encounter as well as the impending Europa League on the horizon this weekend.
Both teams have started out the season strong, and the best pick to back in this encounter will be to back both teams to find the back of the net.
