Just over a month ago, AC Milan looked to have sealed a top-four finish behind a good run of games. But a poor streak has taken the wind out of their sails of late, and now they are in danger of falling out of the Champions League places.
That said, the danger may be there for Milan, but destiny is still in their own hands. For the simple reason that the Rossoneri are sitting at 4th as things stand in the league. A good winning streak from here till the end of the season should see them achieve a top-four finish.
If Milan do achieve that target, it would be a significant step forward for this giant of Italian football who has been flirting with the obscurity in the recent seasons.
At one point in the seaosn, Milan even moved to 3rd on the table, but now they are on a four-game unbeaten run. Time to change that.
Lazio meanwhile are in seventh heading into this match, three points away from the Champions League places.
Well, that gap is between Milan and Lazio, so it’s a potential six-pointe for both the teams. In the end, it could be who handles the pressure well, but that doesn’t augur well for the visitors who shot in their arms last season from getting themselves in a better position.
Lazio must take the opportunity of Milan’s problems. This is perhaps the right time for them to head to San Siro for the hosts are short of confidence.
