Lazio vs AC Milan dominates the action on Monday night with the Milan superstars looking to get their season back on track.
Both sides are coming off devastating losses with Milan losing 2-1 at home to Sassuolo, and Lazio suffering a disasterous 5-2 loss to Napoli.
This sees Lazio in 6th place on the log with 58 points, whilst Milan are in 3rd place with 66 points as they both hunt the European places come the end of the season.
The Rossoneri could become the first team to win 14 of their first 16 games on the road in a single Serie A season with a good result at Lazio.
The reverse fixture, played at San Siro back in December, saw AC Milan get to a narrow 3-2 win over Lazio thanks to an injury-time winner by Theo Hernandez.
