The starting lineups for this afternoon’s Serie A clash between Stefano Pioli’s Milan and Maurizio Sarri’s Lazio have been announced.
Recent History & Form
Milan have been widely inconsistent in recent weeks, dropping points in draws to teams like Empoli, Bologna and Cremonese, but picking up wins over Napoli and Lecce. In Europe, the Rossoneri have qualified for the Champions League semi-finals, where they’ll face Inter. The first leg of this kicks off next week, giving some extra for the players to think about this weekend.
Lazio had been one of the most in-form teams in Serie A in recent weeks but began slipping up at the end of last month, losing to Torino and Inter in back-to-back outings. The team bounced back in a strong 2-0 win over Sassuolo, giving them a little momentum to work with.
When these two teams met back in January, Lazio flew to a thrilling 4-0 win over Milan.
