AC Milan are desperate for a win as they travel to Lazio for their midweek Serie A showdown in an attempt to reduce the point gap at the top of the table.
The hosts Lazio can hop into the top 3 with a win here after their last Serie A encounter resulted in a 2-0 away win at Sassuolo.
The victory left them in 6th place with 34 points, four less than Milan who remain in second place on the log.
The visiting Milan are without a win in their last 4 games in all competitions and are fresh off a 3-0 demolition by city rivals Inter in the SuperCoppa Italiana.
Lazio finished fifth in Maurizio Sarri’s first season at the club and will be hoping to go at least one better this time around and qualify for the Champions League.
The Rossoneri were recently knocked out of the Coppa Italia at home to Torino before their defeat to Inter and are desperate to bounce back to winning ways.
They have a double-header against Tottenham in the club’s first Champions League knockout tie for nine years to look forward to next month.
Does Stefano Pioli’s side have what it takes to record an away win here to maintain their second place spot on the Serie A table?
