Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Stadio Olimpico when Lazio take on Milan in the Serie A derby. The Biancocelesti dropped two points in a goalless draw with SPAL on the opening day of the season, but they proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Chievo in Verona. The club chiefs did well to keep hold of Serbian star Sergej Milinkovic Savic in the summer transfer window and he is likely to play an important role in Simone Inzaghi’s team this season. “SMS” scored a wonder goal in the 2-1 triumph over Chievo and he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders in Sunday’s football match against Milan. The Rossoneri, who reinforced the squad in the summer, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Crotone and Cagliari, but beating Lazio in the “Eternal City” is easier said than done. The Biancocelesti are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we are tempted to put our money on the capital club this time out.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Lukaku):
Jordan Lukaku is well known for his older brother Romelu Lukaku, who plays for Everton as a striker. Jordan began his senior career at Anderlecht, but he made no more than eight league appearances for the club. The left-footed full-back played for fellow Belgian outfit Oostende from 2013 to 2016 and at the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to Italy. Jordan Lukaku signed a deal with Italian club Lazio for a fee of £5 million (plus £1 million in bonuses). His main position is left-back, but he is capable of playing as a left midfielder as well. Speaking of his international career, Jordan Lukaku made his Belgium debut against Andorra on 10 October, 2015. However, he has yet to find the net for the Belgian national team. Jordan was born in Antwerp on 25 July, 1994. His father Roger Lukaku was a professional footballer as well and played for the Zaire national team.
Highlighted Team (AC Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies. Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina. Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks). The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
