Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Stadio Olimpico when Lazio and Milan take on each other in the Serie A in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Matchday 24. The capital club rolled over Pescara at the weekend (6-2), but the Rossoneri are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Coach Simone Inzaghi and his men are eyeing a place in the Champions League and it remains to be seen if the former Lazio attacker is capable of helping the club bring glory days back to Stadio Olimpico. Milan, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form and they are on a four-match losing run in all competitions ahead of the trip to the “Eternal City”. The Rossoneri suffered a 1-0 loss to Sampdoria at their Stadio San Siro at the weekend and, taking everything into account, we predict that Vincenzo Montella’s troops are going to return home empty-handed.
