AC Milan vs Lazio build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Stefano Pioli’s men had an excellent start last season and looked early favourites to win the league before eventually falling away, something they will be hoping to avoid this time around. Milan kicked off the new campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Sampdoria but followed that up with an emphatic 4-1 victory over Cagliari before the international break.
Lazio were one of the 12 Serie A teams to experience a managerial change over the summer with Simone Inzaghi leaving for Inter Milan, but Sarri has hit the ground running at his new club. After building his reputation with Napoli, Sarri endured tough spells at Chelsea and Juventus despite winning trophies with both, failing to please the fans and club hierarchy. However, after a year out, Sarri is back and has seen his new side win both of their opening fixtures in extremely comfortable fashion. They opened the season with a 3-1 win over Empoli before thrashing Spezia 6-1. However, both sides will have an eye on their European fixtures in midweek with Milan going to Anfield to take on Liverpool in the Champions League while Lazio travel to Galatasaray in the Europa League.

Players to watch:
- AC Milan: A move to Italy seems to have rejuvenated Olivier Giroud, but the Frenchman’s absence will provide an opportunity for another old head to make his mark in Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede, who turns 40 next month, has not played for Milan since the start of May after suffering a knee injury which also ruled him out of Sweden’s Euro 2020 squad. But in Giroud’s absence he may be rushed back into the starting line up and Milan will be hoping he can re-find his form from when he did manage to play last season. Ibrahimovic scored 15 goals in 19 Serie A appearances last season, at an average of 0.9 per 90 minutes, the third-best return in the league behind only Luis Muriel (1.38) and Cristiano Ronaldo (0.93).
- Lazio: Over the international break a lot was made of Ciro Immobile and his supposed lack of suitability to the Italian national team. But the striker is now back in Serie A and will be looking to put AC Milan to the sword once again. Immobile has started the new season in excellent fashion, scoring four goals in two Serie A games so far, more than any other player in the division. He also has seven goals in 13 Serie A games against Milan, including six in eight as a Lazio player. Sarri will be hoping Serie A Immobile, and not Italy Immobile, shows up this weekend.
