Albertini believes Milan are ‘in difficulty’ ahead of ‘watershed’ game against Lazio

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan midfielder Demetrio Albertini does not believe that the Rossoneri are suffering from the negative results which remove ‘certainties’ that existed previously.

Milan have won just one of their first five games in 2023 so far and will thus be looking to bounce back on Tuesday evening, but it will be a tough test as they take on Lazio away from home who are part of the chasing pack for the top four.

The collapse against Roma at San Siro on January 9 was the start of a very poor run of form for the Rossoneri, who were dominated in the Supercoppa Italiana final against Inter (losing 3-0) last time out as part of a four-game winless run.

Albertini played for both Milan and Lazio, and he spoke to the Biancocelesti’s official website ahead of his two former sides meeting to discuss the current moment both teams are experiencing, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.

“I saw Milan in difficulty, not only in results. They seem to me to be less nasty than last year, and in some moments superficial. Unfortunately, the negative results take away certainties and also turn the incidents against us,” he began.

“Lazio, on the other hand, are making their way, they got back up after a few false steps. This match could be a watershed to understand where the two teams can go, both of which need the three points.

“Absences? Milan have had many since the beginning of the season, but the heaviest remains that of Immobile: Ciro always scores, the numbers speak for him.”
