Probable lineup vs. Lazio (4-3-3): Reina; Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodríguez; Kessie, Bakayoko, Çalhanoglu; Suso, Piatek, Borini [Sky]— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) April 12, 2019
Gennaro Gattuso will almost certainly go with the same lineup that was unlucky to not get a result in Turin last week at Juventus, and here’s hoping that the team is able to pick up a result at home against one of the teams that is challenging for a spot in next year’s Champions League. Lazio currently sit in 7th place on 49 points, three spots and three points behind Milan. Atalanta are level with Milan on points, but Milan have the tie breaker because of head-to-head results, despite Atalanta having the better goal difference. AS Roma are also lurking in 6th place with 51 points. Even Torino is in the mix, as they are level on points with Lazio in 8th place. It’s all getting very nerve-wracking right now between 4th and 8th place in the Serie A table.
Milan allowed a very late equalizer last time out in the league against Lazio, and they still have to face the Roman club in later this month in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal. Milan haven’t actually beat Lazio this season, but they haven’t lost to them either, and well, that’s important.
With Franck Kessie back in the lineup meaning that Tiémoué Bakayoko can return to his correct position as the defensive midfielder, Milan should be a bit more balanced than they had been in the loss to Sampdoria and the draw against Udinese. If Milan are to return to the Champions League this season, the will have to win tonight or things will get extremely difficult in the last six games of the season.
