Our prediction for this Serie A match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when Milan and Lazio face each other in the Serie A derby. The Rossoneri are eager to climb to the Champions League berth, but Saturday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Fikayo Tomori is back from suspension, while midfielder Tommaso Pobega misses out with a rib injury. Both Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao should be recalled to the starting XI after the duo came off the bench in a 1-1 draw with Cremonese.
The Biancocelesti, on the other hand, are eager to retain second place in the standings, but beating Milan on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Defender Alessio Romagnoli returns from suspension, while Danilo Cataldi remains in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Sandro Tonali):
After starting his youth career at Piacenza back in 2009, Sandro Tonali moved to Brescia three years later. The 181-cm-tall defender has been playing for le Rondinelle ever since and it has to be noted that he made his debut with the Stadio Mario Rigamonti outfit on August 26, 2017 in a 2-1 defeat to Avellino.
Sandro Tonali scored his first ever league goal for Brescia in a 4-2 loss to Salernitana on April 28, 2018. The talented midfielder, who was born in Lodi on May 8, 2000, represents Italy U21 team in international matches.
He made his debut with the Italy U21 national team on June 19, 2019 in a 1-0 defeat to Poland. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. Sandro’s preferred foot is right and his contract with Brescia should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Lazio):
Lazio Roma are an Italian football club based in Rome. Lazio were founded in 1900 and they compete in the Serie A. The Biancocelesti (The White and Sky Blues) have won two Serie A trophies (1973/1974, 1999/2000), while lifting six Coppa Italia titles.
The capital club play their home games at Stadio Olimpico and Roma are regarded as Lazio’s main rivals.
The two teams face each other in the Derby della Capitale and it is considered the fiercest inter-city derby in Italy. Lazio won UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1999, with the team beating Mallorca in the title game. The same year they managed to clinch the UEFA Super Cup trophy as they outplayed English giants Manchester United at Stade Louis II, Monaco.
The likes of Pavel Nedved, Giuseppe Favalli, Juan Sebastian Veron, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Roberto Mancini, Giuseppe Signori, Miroslav Klose and Simone Inzaghi are notable footballers who played for Lazio in the past.
