It is considered by some observers to be the preferred final when Lazio and AC Milan clash in the Coppa Italia semi-final. The names in the other semifinals are finally much less attractive. Fiorentina and Atalanta Bergamo face each other there, but with AS Roma and Juventus they threw two prominent teams out of the race. This can also be said of the Biancocelesti and the Rossoneri. The Aquile were penalized away to Inter Milan on penalties in the quarter-finals, while Il Diavolo celebrated a convincing 2-0 victory over SSC Napoli at home – thanks in part to Matchwinner and winter entrants Krzysztof Piatek.
Today’s Betting Tips Lazio Roma vs AC Milan
Starting with the quarter-final win over Azzurri, the striker, who came from Genoa in the winter, has since appeared in five games in a row for his new employer and has become a sort of face of success, which is why Lazio put Roma in front of AC Milan that he will score another goal in the next Rossoneri triumph. Last year, Gennaro Gattuso’s men ended up on penalties after two goalless draws in the semi-finals with identical pairing. A match that should still resonate at Lazio against AC Milan for the prediction, especially since both teams have also parted in the first round with a 1-1 draw. There, the Rossoneri away in the Olympic Stadium in Roma were much closer to victory, so we at Lazio Roma vs AC Milan, the odds for the away win of the Serie A fourth-placed in this first leg interesting.
Lazio not only lost to record-breaking Sevilla FC in the Europa League but Simone Inzaghi’s squad is also on shaky legs in Serie A. There was a 1-2 defeat in Genoa recently – the third defeat of their last five competitive league matches (two wins). With the qualification for the Champions League, which missed the Aquile last season only on the last match day, Lazio currently has not much to do. Currently, the Biancocelesti are together with the Torino FC and Atalanta Bergamo only in sixth place, but could theoretically be passed with only a single defeat in Serie A up to tenth place, if the competition scores accordingly.
It can therefore be clearly stated that the easiest route for the Romans leads to Europe probably over the Coppa Italia, which they won in the 2012/13 season for the sixth time in their club’s history. For the second consecutive year in the semifinals, they can bow the big AC Milan out of the competition, but not that much at the moment. Of the nominal defensive players in the squad, only four of the nine players are available to Coach Simone Inzaghi – a casualty loss that also manifests itself in the defensive scores. The Biancocelesti have already conceded 27 goals from the 24 league games, which have thus lost their great strength and currently offer only the seventh best defense in Italy. A lot of courage does not make that at Lazio Roma against AC Milan for the prediction. The only advantage: Because of the tight fixtures between the Europa League and Coppa Italia, the league match against Udinese Calcio was postponed over the weekend, so that the Romans had at least a little more regeneration time.

Although the return to the UEFA Champions League is far from dry, with just a single lead over main rival AS Roma, vice versa, after a Serie of victories, their backlog against city rivals Inter Milan has shrunk to just one point, leaving the Rossoneri in such a position slowly but surely getting back to business The celebrated man of the hour in the squad of Gennaro Gattuso is undoubtedly the Pole Krzysztof Piatek. After Gonzalo Higuaín, who has never been really happy with Il Diavolo, was allowed to move to Chelsea, the substitute striker came for 35 million euros from Genoa – a “barter” that not many fans have understood.
“I did not expect Piatek to go that far. That’s a wonderful surprise! ” – Ex-Milan striker Pietro Paolo Virdis at La Gazzetta dello Sport
However, after the first competitive appearances by Krzysztof Piatek, it has to be said that the phrase “strike like a bomb” was rarely appropriate. In the last five games, the “Pistollero” met throughout and brought his new employer not only personally the entry into this Coppa Italia semi-final with a brace against Napoli, but helped actively in the great yield of ten points from the last four league games. In addition to Piatek is also the re-established Hakan Calhanoglu a real guarantor of success and bright spot in the Rossoneri, whose season could be steered in the right direction after some difficult moments like the bitter preliminaries in the Europa League. If Il Diavolo manages to beat Lazio in the cup, the path to the sixth Coppa Italia triumph would be virtually free. Together with the desired return to the premier class, the season should then be considered without a doubt as a success. But there is still a long way to go. At least Lazio Roma vs AC Milan, the odds on the finals of the Rossoneri after seven competitive games without defeat are not bad.

- Gonzalo Hiuaín (6 goals)
