A possible first since 2009: All the key stats ahead of Lazio vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan travel to face Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico tonight needing a positive result to try and get their season back on track.

It has been a difficult start to 2023 with points dropped against Roma and Lecce in the league plus elimination in the Coppa Italia by Torino and most recently a Supercoppa defeat to Inter, so a response is needed.

You can read our preview ahead of tonight’s game here, while below are the best pre-match stats…

➤ Lazio are the team against which Milan have drawn the most games in Serie A (59/158 matches, along with 69 Rossoneri and 30 Biancocelesti wins). However, there has been only one draw in the last 10 matches between Lazio and Milan in Serie A: 1-1 on 25 November 2018, to go with three Biancocelesti and six Rossoneri wins.

➤ After two wins last season, Milan could achieve three consecutive wins against Lazio in Serie A for the first time since the period between 2008 and 2009.

➤ Milan have won two of their last three away matches against Lazio in the league (L1), as many as in the previous 10 (four draws and four defeats).

➤ Lazio have kept clean sheets in 10 of 18 matches this season (fewer only than Juventus, 12) – in the entirety of the last Serie A campaign, the Biancocelesti recorded nine clean sheets in 38 games.

➤ After a 2-2 draw against Empoli in their last match at the Olimpico, Lazio could draw two home games in a row in Serie A for the first time since January 2022 (the first in this run was also against Empoli).

➤ Milan drew 2-2 in both of their last two league games (against Roma and Lecce): the last time the Rossoneri recorded three consecutive draws in Serie A was back in September 2018, under Gennaro Gattuso.

➤ Only Inter (13) have scored more than Lazio and Milan (both 12) in the first 30 minutes of games in Serie A this season; the Biancocelesti are also the only team that have not yet conceded a goal in the first half hour of play.

➤ Both Mattia Zaccagni and Felipe Anderson have scored in their last two league matches: the Italian has never found the net in three straight games in Serie A, while the Brazilian last did so between December 2014 and January 2015.

➤ Rafael Leão was directly involved in a goal in both matches against Lazio last season (a goal at the Meazza on 12 September 2021 and an assist at the Olimpico on 24 April). Overall, the Portuguese has been involved in 21 goals in his last 23 Serie A matches (11 goals and 10 assists).
