Seperated by just a single point in the standings, one of Sunday's standout games in Serie A sees Gennaro Gattuso's side head to the Stadio Olimpico

The Stadio Olimpico is the venue for Lazio's clash with AC Milan on Sunday.

This venue has been a happy hunting ground in recent weeks. Lazio have won four of their previous five Serie A games and 888Sport offer 10/13 (1.77) that they come out on top in this one.

The issue with that though, is Lazio's performances against the elite sides they've faced so far. Their four league meetings with Juventus, Napoli, Inter and Roma have yielded no points so putting faith in a home win at a relatively short price looks worth avoiding.

These teams played out two draws in the Coppa Italia earlier this year and it's 27/10 (3.70) that this game ends all square.

Milan for their part are 13/4 (4.25) to secure a victory that would see them leapfrog the hosts and into the top four in Serie A.

The best bet here though looks to be goals. Take out those two 0-0 draws in the Coppa Italia and both teams have scored in eight of the last 10 meetings between these sides.

Gennaro Gattuso's side have kept only one clean sheet in six away league games so far this term and that came at struggling Udinese. They have however, only failed to score once in that same half dozen games and considering Lazio's issues against better sides, it looks unlikely that either defence will put in a stellar performance.

Even without the suspended Gonzalo Higuain, Milan have enough firepower to get on the scoresheet. Higuain has only scored five of the 21 Serie A goals that the visitors have racked up so far.

7/10 (1.70) is available on neither keeping a clean sheet with 888Sport. That's a bet that's paid out in four of Lazio's last five matches in all competitions and three of Milan's.

Ciro Immobile has scored eight times in the league already and the Italy international could be set for another big performance on home soil.

Lazio's leading man is Evens (2.0) to find the net at any stage and could be an alternative play but the 7/10 (1.70) on both teams to score should be the main selection ahead of Sunday's showdown in Rome.
