The Lazio vs. Milan match will be played on Tuesday, February 26, at the Olympic Stadium, Rome. This is the first semifinal leg of Coppa Italia. In the previous round, Lazio eliminated Inter after a penalty shootout, while Milan was better than Napoli.
In their last ten meetings, Lazio recorded only two wins, Milan had four victories (one after a penalty shootout), while four matches ended in a draw. In seven out of these ten matches we saw under 2.5 goals, but in two out of the remaining three games we saw over 3.5 goals.
Lazio is losing the battle for the place in Champions League. At the moment, they are seven points behind the fourth-placed Milan, but they have a game in hand. However, it is hard to expect that both Roma and Milan will encounter a serious loss of form in the remaining part of the season, so Lazio will probably focus on Coppa Italia instead. Both teams have a great chance to win the trophy, since Juventus is already out of competition and they might even send their best teams on the pitch.

Milan won the Super Cup trophy in 2016 and ended their drought that lasted for five years, but overall, this decade is one of the worst in their long history. Their priority is to finish in the top four and get back to Champions League, but if they get an opportunity to win a trophy, they won't miss it.
