Lazio entertain AC Milan in matchday 34 of Serie A 2021-22 at San Siro on Monday, April 25. The match will kick off at 12:15 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Lazio’s confirmed absentees for the upcoming league game will be Spanish pair Patric and Pedro (muscular problems) while some first-team players, including midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, look to shrug off symptoms of a flu from an illness outbreak last week.
Milan, on the other hand, have no new additions to their injury list that already includes Simon Kjaer (cruciate ligament), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (head), and Alessandro Florenzi (meniscus). Striker Ante Rebic returned to training from a suspected knee injury and could feature from the bench.

Despite the injury struggles at hand, AC Milan are the favourites to win this fixture. The current Serie A leaders will look up to the seasoned Olivier Giroud to find the net for a team chasing a first league title since 2010-11.
However, Lazio will be no pushovers considering they have a formidable home record to boast - unbeaten in 27 of their last 29 home Serie A matches.
