Coppa Italia action returns to the Italian football with Lazio hosting AC Milan in the first leg of the domestic cup semi-final at the Stadio Olimpico today.

Lazio have been struggling with form in the past couple of weeks with 3 consecutive losses. Le Aquile's drop in form has seen them going out of the Europa League as well as out of the top 4 of the Serie A. Lazio defeated Inter Milan in the last round of the Coppa Italia.

One of the in-form teams in Italian football at the moment, the Rossoneri have tasted just one defeat since Christmas. The defeat though came against league leaders Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana in Saudi Arabia. Gattuso and his men will be looking for another semifinal win against their opponents today after knocking out Lazio in the same round last year.
