AC Milan take on Lazio on the road this evening as Stefano Pioli’s men look to bounce back from their shock defeat against Sassuolo last weekend. Milan are on thin ice following some poor results but all the Champions League bound sides seem to be having ups and downs following Juventus draw yesterday and Roma’s loss. Milan will still be missing their target man Zlatan Ibrahimovic hence Mario Mandzukic is set to get a start. Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez are doubts for the game and Ismael Bennacer may also make a return. Lazio seem set to miss some starters as Lucas Leiva and Luis Alberto are doubts as well as Adam Marusic. Milan need to be solid defensively in this game as they have been leaking goals in recent weeks. The Rossoneri currently sit in 3rd place behind Atalanta but have this game in hand hence a win is sorely guaranteed.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez, Kessie, Bennacer, Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic, Mandzukic.
