AC Milan vs Lazio: prediction for the Serie A fixture
AC Milan won both matches at the start of the season. Will Lazio be able to create problems for the hosts on 12 September? Our answer is in the prediction below.
AC Milan were very good last season and for the first time in many years, they earned a ticket to the Champions League. In the summer, the Rossoneri sold Gianluigi Donnarumma, who was replaced by Mike Magnan from Lille. So far, the new goalkeeper has conceded one goal in two games.
In the first round of the new Serie A season, AC Milan paid a visit to Sampdoria. Stefano Pioli's team opened the scoring in the 9th minute but didn't create anything else in attack. The hosts had a few chances for a comeback, but couldn't use them. As a result, the Rossoneri got their first, although very modest, victory (1:0).
AC Milan looked much more solid against Cagliari. They scored four goals before halftime, while the Sardinians could answer with only one goal. Olivier Giroud scored a double, helping his new team to move up to 4th place in the table.
Lazio failed in the last season: the Romans clearly wanted to get Champions League but they finished only sixth, just outside the European club competition zone. In the summer, Simone Inzaghi left Lazio, and the board managed to replace him with Maurizio Sarri. In the first round, Lazio beat Empoli away without any problems (3:1).
In the second round, the Eagles faced Spezia, which had upset many favourites in the last season of Serie A. Spezia scored an early goal, but then the game was fully dominated by Lazio. The Romans netted six goals, and the 6:1 victory allowed them to rise to the first line in the table.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 5 home games of AC Milan.
In the last 2 games of AC Milan, this bet played.
Lazio have scored in the first half in their last 2 games.
AC Milan showed solid play in the first two games of Serie A. They are clearly determined to fight for the Top 4 at the very least. Lazio have looked better than their opponents so far, but those were weaker teams than AC Milan. Probably the Eagles will play a bit more carefully in defense this time. Lazio's away matches have traditionally been tough: last season, 9 out of 12 defeats were suffered away. AC Milan are in good shape and normally play well at home.
We believe that the hosts have a better chance of winning. Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to AC Milan.
Prediction: Handicap (0) to AC Milan

AC Milan will obviously strive to win - the Rossoneri do not set any other goals at home. Considering that Lazio regularly make mistakes in defense, we predict that AC Milan will get three points, however, we wouldn't expect a crushing score.
Our second bet - AC Milan to win by 1 goal.
