Italian Serie A

14 Feb 2017 | 01:15 AM
Olimpico, Roma






AC Milan have only lost three of their last 37 Serie A games against Lazio, winning 16 and sharing 18 draws.
However, those three wins for Lazio have been over the last five meetings between these two sides at the Olimpico – one win for the Rossoneri and a draw in the process.
Lazio have collected 43 points after 23 matchdays of this campaign, like in 2012/13 – their joint-best record since 2004/05.
This is also Lazio’s most prolific goalscoring campaign since 2000/01, when they had scored 44 goals after 23 games, three more than those netted so far this term.
Milan have picked up 40 points after 23 league games: in the era of the three points for a win they have always finished in the top four of Serie A when they have collected at least 40 points by this stage.
AC Milan have collected only one point over the first four games of the second half of the campaign – their worst record since 1981/82.
Only Real Madrid, Arsenal and Monaco (both 13 goals) have scored more headers than Lazio (12) so far amongst Europe’s top-5 leagues.
Milan have scored 70% of their league goals in the second halves: no team has a better percentage than the Rossoneri this season.
Carlos Bacca has found the net in each of his three previous appearances against Lazio so far in Serie A – each of his three goals against the Biancocelesti have been from open play from inside the penalty area.
Marco Parolo, who scored four goals in his last Serie A appearance against Pescara last Sunday, has already netted five goals against AC Milan who are his favourite target in this competition.
