Tip AC Milan - Lazio
AC Milan reached the final of the Italian Cup last season but lost to Juventus. The league leaders have already been knocked out of this year's competition so Milan will be hoping to go one better this time around. They have already knocked out Sampdoria and Napoli and are in a good position in this semi-final having drawn the away leg 0-0. That away leg was played at the end of February, now it's nearly the end of April so time to get the second leg out of the way. Milan have only won one of their last four games but at home have only lost one of their last nine. That includes a 1-0 home win over Lazio
Lazio are in eighth position in Serie A and winning the Italian Cup may be their only way into the Europa League next season. They lost 2-1 at home to relegated Chievo at the weekend and have only won one of their last five league games. That sole victory was a home win over Udinese who are in relegation trouble. Away from home, Lazio have won one of their last six games and in the Italian Cup, their only away win in their last four games was on penalties. Milan are in better form and can get a narrow win here to reach the final.
Key points AC Milan - Lazio
