AC Milan face Lazio at the San Siro tonight for their final fixture of 2020. Milan are missing lots of key players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Simon Kjaer, Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer. Sandro Tonali and Ante Rebic are doubts thus Stefano Pioli will need to fire up the available squad members to ensure Milan do not lose their unbeaten streak. Milan always struggle against Lazio's counter attacking style but will need to strike early as with the previous game against Sassuolo to put down the visitors.

Players to Watch

Ciro Immobile

Immobile has 8 goals in the league in 11 games scoring in all but one of the past eight games. Milan will need to be wary of the target man as he will almost certainly target Kalulu. Milan will have a huge chance to win if Immobile is immobilised thus we hope Romagnoli puts in a monstrous performance.

Hakan Calhanoglu

Calhanoglu had an unlucky spell last time out scoring a stunner but having it ruled out for offside. He is the creative heart of the side and will be expected to set up the likes of Leao and Rebic to score early on again. He keeps making the difference for Milan and this is a vital opportunity to do the same again.

Rade Krunic

Krunic has been played more this season but has been a polarising player. He sometimes puts in good shifts but he has been hugely error prone leading to difficult situations such as the Hellas Verona fixture. He has an opportunity to be solid for the side and his performance will overall determine whether Milan win or lose tonight.

Prediction: Milan 3 - 2 Lazio
