CorSera: Tricky trip to Lazio awaits as Pioli looks to rediscover his Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in a difficult moment having not won any of their last four games, but they have a chance to bounce back against Lazio tonight.

Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) speaks of difficult days at Milanello after the disappointing defeat against Inter in the Supercoppa. Losing a derby is hard to take, and if it is one worth a trophy then it’s even harder.

Pioli said in a press conference yesterday that he understood what his team’s problems are and that he knows how to solve them, so tonight at the Stadio Olimpico we will see if the team recover or if instead the rot continues.

Milan beat Lazio in this fixture last season thanks to Sandro Tonali’s winning goal in the 93rd minute, however this time there are some psychological issues in the squad that must be fixed, something perhaps only a win can do.

At Milanello there is a great desire for redemption and to resume the title race but Lazio are doing well, who are going through a good moment of form and who are very fearsome even if their striker Ciro Immobile is missing. Milan have one target: to return to winning.
