Lazio’s ultimate goal this season is to return to the Champions League group stages. They were one of Italy’s consistent competitors in the Champions League about a century ago, but it has been such a long time that they competed there and they have had to settle for the Europa League again this season.
The Aquille are not doing badly in Europe with 3 wins from 4 games, but they would want a top four finish at the end of this campaign more than anything. They have done well enough in the league so far as well.
The home side come into this game sitting in the 4th position, however, they have collected just 1 point from their last two games following a defeat against Inter and a draw against Sassuolo, this game offers them the chance to get back to form.
Milan are also looking to get back to the Champions League having not competed there since the 2013/2014 season. They have been impressive over the past two seasons, however, losses against the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan this season leaves them on the 5th position ahead of this game.
The visitors come here in inconsistent form, but they have won 3 of their last 4 league games and can’t be written off here.
