The clash between the two top clubs in Italy is always going to be an exciting one. Despite their appeal at European stage, both Lazio and Milan have not had a good start to the league in 2015-16 season.
Lazio are sixth in the table with 18 points after 10 matches. Siniša Mihajlović’s side are two points behind their weekend’s opponent in the eight spot. A victory on Sunday will see them move above the hosts in the league table.
In the last five meetings between the two clubs, both teams have won on two occasions. Lazio managed to score on each of those occasions, but worrying factor for Stefano Pioli is that his side have not scored more than one goal in last five fixtures against Milan.
On the other hand, Milan have failed to score only once in the last five meetings, which came during the 1-0 defeat earlier this year. They have scored eight goals in the remaining four matches.
Both teams have a similar win ratio if one can consider the recent form. Lazio and Milan have won three of their last five matches played in all competitions. It is likely to be a close fixture when these two teams face each other on Sunday, considering the history and recent form.
