➤ Milan have won both of their last two Serie A games against Lazio, their longest streak against the Biancocelesti since 2009 (run of three).

➤ Lazio have not kept a clean sheet against Milan in a Serie A game since February 2012 (2-0 win). Since then, the Rossoneri have found the net in 17 such games in a row (1.8 goals per game on average).

➤ Last season, Lazio failed to score at home against Milan; they last failed to score against them in back-to-back matches at the Olimpico in 2007 (two 0-0 draws).

➤ Lazio have won each of their last nine home games in the top-flight; they could win 10 such games at home in a row for the third time in their Serie A history, after 1937 and 1974.

➤ Milan have won 13 away Serie A games this term; they could become the first team to win 14 of their first 16 games on the road in a single Serie A season (currently the fastest team to reach 14 away wins was Inter — in 17 games in 2006-07).

➤ Milan have conceded the highest percentage of goals from corners in Serie A this season (22%, 8/38). However, Lazio have scored the lowest such percentage in this season’s division (4%).

➤ Former Lazio coach Stefano Pioli has won both of his last two Serie A games with Milan against the Biancocelesti, as many wins as in his 13 previous clashes against this opponent in the competition (D4 L7).

➤ Lazio’s Ciro Immobile has scored six goals in 12 matches against Milan in Serie A, including two goals in the two most recent such games. Indeed, he also scored a hat-trick against the Rossoneri at the Olimpico stadium in September 2017.

➤ Milan’s Franck Kessie has scored three goals in six matches against Lazio in Serie A; against no team has he netted more in the competition. This includes a brace in his debut in the top flight, in August 2016 for Atalanta.

➤ Milan’s Hakan Calhanoglu is close to scoring 50 goals in the top-five European leagues (currently 49) – only three Turkish players have reached this milestone since 2000: Mevlut Erdinc (92), Nihat Kahveci (76) and Halil Altintop (67).
