Milinkovic-Savic ‘had a feeling’ he’d break Milan taboo

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic reveals he ‘had a feeling’ he would end his goal drought against Milan and picked himself in his Fantasy Football team for the 4-0 Lazio victory.

It was a rout at the Stadio Olimpico, with Milinkovic-Savic’s goal followed by Mattia Zaccagni tapping in, a Luis Alberto penalty and Felipe Anderson finishing the well-worked move.

“It is perhaps the best night, a great game in front of our fans, everyone played well and it was thoroughly deserved. Now we keep our feet on the ground and our heads down, we keep going,” he told DAZN.

The result puts Lazio in joint third place along with Inter and Roma, only one point behind Milan in second.

“If we play like the last three wins, we can really go far. There are always those moments when we drop off, but we are trying to limit those as much as possible.”

Milinkovic-Savic was asked if Lazio can one day aim for the Scudetto under Maurizio Sarri?

“Why not? If we play like this against the reigning champions, why can’t we do that?”

He broke the deadlock after four minutes, but it was his first ever goal against Milan and the Serbian jokes he bet on himself.

“I read a lot of things about me never scoring against Milan, but I had a feeling that would change tonight. I got three points on Fantasy Football.”
