Lazio vs Milan: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

Milan’s Scudetto credentials will be put to the test as they travel to face Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico looking to tighten their grip on top spot in Serie A.

Stefano Pioli’s side exited the Coppa Italia at the semi-final stage to their bitter rivals Inter in midweek, with Lautaro Martinez’s brace putting the seal on a disappointing evening for the Rossoneri.

Lazio harbour improbable ambitions of leapfrogging both Roma and Juventus to secure a return to the Champions League next season, with Maurizio Sarri’s men having lost just once at home since November.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

When is kick off? Sunday 24 April, 19:45 (BST)
Where is the match being played? Stadio Olimpico
TV channel/live stream? BT Sport 1 (UK), Paramount+ (US)
Highlights? BT Sport YouTube channel, Serie A YouTube channel
Referee? Marco Guida
VAR? Daniele Orsato

Maurizio Sarri’s side are relatively healthy on the injury front, but the Italian is sweating on the fitness of Patric in defence after he was forced off before the interval in the 1-1 draw with Torino last weekend.

Similarly, Pedro is an injury doubt, although Mattia Zaccagni continues to impress in a supporting role to Ciro Immobile.

Stefano Pioli is dealing with a spate of long-term injuries, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alessandro Florenzi and Simon Kjaer set to be absent.

Alessio Romagnoli is inching closer to a return from a muscle injury, although this weekend is likely to come too soon for the Italian.

Milan’s midweek Derby della Madonnina defeat is likely to sting for some time, although Pioli’s side can hardly allow a hangover with their lead at the top of Serie A sitting at just two points.

Last weekend’s win over Genoa marked a return to winning ways for the Rossoneri after a pair of draws had dented their chance to run away with the title.

Regular goalscoring continues to be an issue for Milan and, as they travel to a tough venue this weekend, it could come back to bite them once again.

Prediction: Lazio 1-1 Milan
