The lure of playing Champions League football next season looks set to propel both sides into continuing their goalscoring record against each other

AC Milan will play host to Lazio at the San Siro for their crunch Serie A match on Saturday evening.

Gennaro Gattuso will be hoping his men return to winning ways at (2.60) odds with Bet365, having watched his players go four league matches without a win.

Before the start of their winless run in the match against bitter rivals Inter Milan last month, the Red and Blacks had embarked on a five-game winning streak in the league – and they will thus be hoping their impressive home record against the Biancocelesti eliminates the frustrating run so far.

To put things into perspective, AC Milan are unbeaten since 1989 against Lazio at home in Serie A (P28 W17 D11). Therefore, the home side have been backed at odds of (1.45) with the same betting company to avoid defeat here and thus extend their unbeaten run in the league against Simone Inzaghi’s men to 29 games.

However, Lazio will take solace from their last visit to this ground – which resulted in a 1-0 win for the Rome-based outfit against Inter Milan.

A famous win for them here to end the hoodoo against AC Milan at San Siro is priced at (2.75) odds with the aforementioned bookies.

The last four meetings between these two clubs in all competitions all ended in a draw. Odds of (3.30) are on offer should this game follow in this trend.

Meanwhile, the two clubs can still make it to next season’s Champions League competition by virtue of their current placement on the log. Therefore, both managers will look to encourage their respective sides to go all out for the maximum points in this one – which would likely result in goal action at both ends of the pitch.

Indeed, these two sides have scored against each other in their last four meetings in the league, and punters can go with Bet365’s offer of (1.75) odds for both goalkeepers to pick the ball out of their respective nets.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
