The ‘Biancocelesti’ ultras were absent from the Stadio Olimpico Curva Nord, in a protest towards owner Claudio Lotito’s admission prices. They would be left regretting that decision minutes into the game, as Immobile struck his 26th of the season, again showing the classic poacher’s instinct in beating Pierre Kalulu to the ball, to meet Sergej Milinković-Savić’s perfectly weighted cross. The goal makes the veteran striker only the fourth player across Europe’s five biggest domestic leagues to score over 25 goals in three or more seasons since 2016/17. Milan needed a hero possessing vast experience of dealing with deficits, and while the Rossoneri’s number nine Giroud had found the net just once in his last 10 games prior to kick-off, he should have done better when guiding Brazilian Junior Messias’ left-footed cross wide from a central position. He was then seen berating teammate Rafael Leão as he fired into the side netting, with Giroud begging for a square ball and a tap in. Giroud’s frustration abated just minutes into the second half though, as Leão made up for his earlier faux pas by laying the ball on a plate for the Frenchman, who scored only his second away goal after Leão showed too much pace for Francesco Acerbi. The ‘Rossoneri’ threw everything at their hosts after going level, and it took until the 92nd minute for the Lazio defence to again be thwarted as Tonali poked home following a Zlatan Ibrahimović knock down. With Lazio being undefeated in 28 of their 30 prior Serie A home matches, Milan know that they have claimed a massive scalp tonight. The Scudetto title race is still all to play for, but with their final four fixtures all coming against top-10 sides, Stefano Pioli's men know that their quest to turn the Scudetto’s ribbons from Inter blue to Milan red has truly only just begun.

On April 4, at the Olimpico stadium in Rome, as part of the 34th round of the Italian Serie A of the 2021/2022 season, Lazio hosted Milan.

Lazio 1-2 Milan

Immobile, 4 (1:0). Giroud, 50 (1:1). Tonali, 90+2 (1:2).

For Milan, this victory meant first place in the standings.

But Lazio just didn’t want to give it to the guests. Already in the 4th minute, Ciro Imobille scored the first goal of this match ahead of Pierre Kalulu and taking a perfectly calibrated pass from Sergei Milinkovic-Savic.

After a missed goal, Milan went on the attack, Giroud and Leo created dangerous moments in the first half, but the players lacked accuracy and coherence.

But in the second half, the guests did not have to look for a long time, in the 56th minute Milan equalized when Leao corrected his mistake by laying the ball to Giroud, who scored his second away goal after Leao showed Francesco Acerbi too fast.

After scoring a goal, Milan gave all his strength to score a goal, and at the end of the match the guests managed to achieve success. In the 92nd minute, Lazio’s defense was again undermined when Tonali drove the ball into the goal from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic shot.

As a result, Milan’s victory means reaching the first place in the Serie A table. Lazio (56) is in sixth place in the table.
