Milan host Lazio in Serie A on Saturday in a crunch clash between two sides vying for qualification for next season's Champions League.


Gennaro Gattuso's side looked set for a top four finish a month ago but the wheels have come off in recent weeks, losing three of their last four, and they are now level on points with fifth placed Atalanta.


Lazio have won three of their last six, most recently drawing at home to Sassuolo after a 1-0 defeat at SPAL.

Recent Form


Neither side have been in breathtaking form over the last few weeks, with Milan's top four bid taking blow after blow in terms of results.


I Rossoneri lost against Juventus after taking the lead in Turin, having drawn at home to Udinese the week before.

Prediction


With neither side coming into Saturday's clash in spectacular form, there could an edgy atmosphere at San Siro.

Milan may be slight favourites on paper due to their home advantage, but Lazio certainly have the attacking players to make a difference. However, there may not be anything to split them at full time.


Prediction: Milan 1-1 Lazio
