AC Milan just can’t seem to catch a break, even after the match with Lazio where they thought they would win, yet managed to walk away with a point. The bet we placed with William Hill on Lazio to win didn’t pay off even if Lazio did manage to score twice, one was an own goal and it counted for AC Milan.
Clarence Seedorf hat to work around having several players missing as he had to replace Abbiati with Amelia and among others Mario Balotelli who was replaced with Keisuke Honda. In the first half Lazio looked more threatening than Milan, and they did score, but it was an own goal as Kaka’s cross deflected past Konko and into Lazio’s net.
To be quite honest, Lazio did manage to score one more goal in the first half, but Diego Novaretti’s accomplishment was ruled as offside on Giuseppe Biava. Milan had Kaka and Honda in great form, but somehow even in the second half Lazio looked as the most dangerous side. Biglia could have scored shortly after the second half started, but De Jong cleared off the ball Amelia only managed to punch out of the goal line.
Lazio equalized shortly after that through Gonzalez, and Seedorf was forced to bring in Mario Balotelli. The change did some good for Milan’s pace into the game even though the points were Lazio’s to take. After the end of the match the hosts extended their undefeated run against AC Milan to four games, and the visitors are now sporting the same number of points as Genoa.
Result: -8 units, bet lost
