In the 3rd round of Serie A, the “Red and Black” AC Milan will take on the “Blue Eagles” Lazio.
AC Milan is a well-known team, as the Red and Blacks were at the top of the league table for a long time last season.However, as the schedule progressed, the team was overtaken by their old rivals Inter Milan and eventually finished second in the league.
AC Milan have been in good form this season, collecting 3 points from 2 matches, with a 4-1 win over Cagliari last time out, showing that the team is still growing in strength. New signing Olivier Giroud scored twice in a very good performance, but he is currently injured and his availability is yet to be confirmed.
AC Milan’s success is due to the huge investment made by the Milan club in the summer window. The team has signed a number of players in the summer window this year, spending up to 85 million euros to do so, bringing in experienced players such as Tomori, Tonelli, Brahim Diaz, Giroud, Florentine, Maignan and Florentine.
However, some of the core starters have also left the team, such as Donnarumma, Çalhanoglu and Laxalt. In addition, according to the news, the veteran Ibe is back from injury and will probably play against the Blue Eagles.
Lazio are still having a good run this season and have also won 2 matches, firstly a 3-1 win over Empoli to open the season and then a 6-1 sweep of Spezia. The Blue Eagles have scored 9 goals in these 2 games, showing the team’s attacking prowess, with the central striker, Immobile, scoring 4 goals, currently the most in the team.
The Blue Eagles also reflected their shortcomings in these 2 games, that is, they conceded goals in both games and still have some problems in the defensive end.
Lazio still have a lot of changes for the new season. Former manager Walter Inzaghi has left to join Inter Milan and Maurizio Sarri is now taking over the reins. The squad has brought in the likes of Felipe Anderson, Pedro, Kamenovic and Alsaid. Right winger Bobby Edkani is currently out of action due to a meniscus injury.
In their previous meetings, AC Milan have won 3, drawn 4 and lost 3 of their last 10 matches against Lazio, so the two sides have a half-decent record.
In recent times, both sides have won 2 straight league matches and their morale is undoubtedly high.
Sarri’s tactics are more offensive and aggressive; Sarri has a clear advantage over Milan’s manager Pioli in their encounter; Lazio’s 433 formation is very strong in attack, and Milan’s tactical formation is affected to a certain extent.
I think Lazio still have a chance to go home with a point in this match.
