Serie A Preview | Milan vs. Lazio: first big match for Pioli and Sarri

by | Sep 11, 2021 11:02

Stefano Pioli and Maurizio Sarri meet at San Siro in their first big match of the season with six points each.

Olivier Giroud has recovered from COVID but it is unlikely the former Chelsea man starts against the Biancocelesti. The same goes for Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has recovered from an injury, but will start on the bench, so Ante Rebic will get the nod up front. Captain Simon Kjaer may also be rested ahead of next week’s Champions League clash against Liverpool.

Maurizio Sarri can rely on full squad. Ciro Immobile returned from international duty with Italy earlier, but is fit to start. Adam Marusic should replace Manuel Lazzari who picked up an injury before the international break and is still not fully fit. Maurizio Sarri’s side take to the pitch next Thursday in their  Europa League opener against Galatasaray, but Sarri is not expected to rotate his squad much against the Rossoneri.

    Most exiting match of the week in Serie A.

    This game is bigger than Napoli-Juve because Juve come in with 1 pt in 2 games whilst both Milan and Lazio won their 2 opening games.
    C’mon Lazio 💙🦅❗
