The AC Milan Women will take on S.S. Lazio this Saturday. Kickoff time is at 14:30 CET (5:30 am PST / 8:30 am EST).

Here’s a brief overview of what you need to know about the match.

The Formations

Milan will most likely continue in their 3-4-1-2 formation. Although the formation has had mixed results, it’s served them well in the league so far.

Lazio, on the other hand, will most likely lineup in a 4-3-3.

The Projected Lineups

Lazio: Öhrström; Heroum, Foerdos, Thomsen, Gambarotta; Cuschieri, Mastrantonio,

Castiello; Pittaccio, Martin, Andersen

Milan: Giuliani; Agard, Fusetti, Codina; Bergamaschi, Jane, Adami, Andersen (or Tucceri Cimini); Boquete, Thomas; Giacinti

The Story so Far

The team has won their first two games of the season and kept a clean sheet in both matches.

They are also the only team to not have suffered a single shot on target (OptaPaolo).

The Rossonere have also scored a total of five goals.

Lazio, on the other hand, have lost both of their matches. They’ve also scored only one goal and let in two in the process.

If Milan are to win this match, then expect them to do so on the strength of their defense.

Lazio also has a few faces that are familiar to Milan. The Rossonere’s former coach, Carolina Morace, currently oversees the team. Former midfielder and fan favorite, Nora Heroum, has traded in her red and black kits for the Aquila’s blue and white.

It will be bittersweet to see the two of them suiting up for the opposition. Familiarity also breeds contempt, so look for Morace to use her knowledge of the inner workings of Milan against us.

Prediction

It’s hard to predict a winner in this one, but look for Milan to squeak out a winner by one or two goals. And also be prepared to suffer a lot in the process.

How to watch

If you live in Italy, you’ll be able to watch the game on TimVision, La7, and on Milan TV.

Brazil: ESPN Brasil and Star Plus (maybe).

Scandinavia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and the Netherlands: Viaplay

The rest of the world: As was noted before, the FIGC is still working on distributing the rights for the league. Fortunately for us, this game will be the featured match of the week and you’ll be able to watch it for free on La7. You’ll also be able to watch a replay of the game on the team’s Dailymotion page.

So, tune in to support our ladies in action this Saturday and spurn them onto victory.
