Milan vs Lazio

Coppa Italia Quarterfinal

Today, 2:45 PM

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milano

Referee: G. Rocchi

Lazio won the last game 3-1 and broke Stephen El Shaarawy, now they stand between Milan and the Coppa semi-finals. Fortunately they will be without Filip Djordjevic and Felipe Anderson who are both out with an ankle and knee injuries respectively. Milan will be without the long term injured players and also Phillippe Mexes who put a Lazio player in an Olympic style chokehold after his sending off but seems to have just been dropped for this game.

The Coppa is Milan's last chance at salvation this season and we have done reasonably well so far, even avenging our league losses with victories in the cup. Form has not been too kind as Milan has lost three of the last five matches while Lazio has only lost one of their last ten.

The pressure is on Pippo Inzaghi as well as reports have picked up that this may very well be his last chance at saving his job.

This isn't good either:
