Bet on Milan to have little trouble seeing off Lazio

| 01.02.2011

Although a game between two of the top three sides in Serie A, AC Milan should run out comfortable winners in their home clash with Lazio.

Match Odds

Milan are currently four points clear at the top of the standings and are in fine form at present thanks to victories in their last four games across all competitions.

Meanwhile, in Zlatan Ibrahimovic they have a striker bang in form with goals in his last four league games.

It is 4/7 in the Serie A betting odds that Milan beat Lazio and move ten points ahead of their opposition in the Italian top-flight standings.

There is little to suggest that Lazio are liable to take anything from the San Siro, particularly since it has been 26 league games since they last beat AC Milan.

Meanwhile, Lazio are without a win in their last five Serie A away games, which has included three defeats.

However, Lazio will be up for the game, knowing that they realistically need to win to keep alive their title hopes and are 4/1 to beat AC Milan.

Half Time/Full Time

With Milan, and Ibrahimovic in particular, showing a tendency to score late goals this season, perhaps the best betting value may be found in how the game is poised at both half time and full time.

Lazio can be expected to keep things tight for long periods and so it may be wise to opt for the game to be all square at the interval with Milan securing victory in the second half.

It is 7/2 for the game to be level at half time and Milan to be ahead at the final whistle.

Furthermore, it could be profitable to take the 8/1 that Milan come from behind to take maximum points.

A £25 stake on Milan beating Lazio 2-1 would return £175. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
