New Italian Serie A season 2011-12 kicks off tonight with defending champions AC Milan hosting Lazio at San Siro. The Champions will be looking to grab victory in their first match of the season while on the other hand Lazio, who finished at 5th place last season, will try to overcome Milan and thus this match will be very interesting to watch.
Milan’s coach Allegri said in an interview:
“We just have to focus on tomorrow’s game. From Saturday on, we can think of Barcelona. Tomorrow’s game will be tough as it’s the opening game and we haven’t played for a while. The difficult thing will be to have the right mental approach.”
Bommel, Robinho, Flamini, newly signed Taiwo and Mexes are suffering with injuries and will miss the action against Lazio tonight. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been declared fit to play and will join Pato in the attack.
Cisse and Klose will be in the starting XI for Lazio while Sculli and Marius Stenkevicius are sidelined due to injuries.
