Lazio will be taking on the inform AC Milan during the weekend looking to maintain their position in the top three of the Italian Serie A table. Milan are the major threat for that position right now, as they have been on an incredible run of form since the turn of the new year. The arrival of the former Manchester City and Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli has also worked in favour of the team. The recent high-profile wins against Barcelona have confirmed that Milan are a force to reckon with once again. This is also the opinion of the Lazio manager Vladimir Petkovic, who is preparing his team to face Milan.
Vladimir Petkovic has said that Milan are a team that should be feared by everyone, but he has also said that Lazio are also a team that should be feared by Milan due to their recent form. Lazio, though, will be coming into the match on the back of just one win in the last four matches. This has seen them slip behind the likes of Napoli and Juventus in the table. They had an outside chance of winning the title this season, but this recent poor run of form has left the club to fight for a Champions League spot.
“Milan are a team to fear but maybe they should fear us as well. It will be a very important game and we will try to win it. The table says that we are ahead of Milan, and we probably deserve to be two points ahead of them. We have to respect them, though, especially after their win against Barcelona,” said Petkovic, while acknowledging the fact that the win against Barcelona provides their opposition with a huge boost of confidence. Milan are now the favourites to progress into the quarter-finals of the Champions league following the 2-0 win over Barcelona.
