Simone Inzaghi has warned Milan that Lazio will be out for revenge ahead of their Wednesday’s Coppa Italia semi-final second leg at San Siro.

Both sides drew blank in the first leg of the tie but Milan has enjoyed a fair share of the wins in recent meetings.

Lazio have lost three of their last five Serie A games, among them a 2-1 defeat to Chievo.

“There’s been so much talk about our bad performance on Saturday,” Inzaghi told Lazio Style Channel and cited on Football Italia.

“Tomorrow we’ll have a lot to play for. The game will be very tight. We want to reach the Final and we’ll try to do our talking on the pitch. There’s a desire for payback.

“We’re facing a great team. We’ve seen it over the years, all our games have been tight.

“We must be able to play proactively and direct incidents in our favour. We’re playing for so much.

“We’ve been preparing well for the game. We want to reach the Final in 90 minutes. We want to do that at all costs.

“I’ll make some important changes: our key players are crucial, but so are those who will come in.”

The last meeting between Milan and Lazio ended in a 2-1 win for the Rossoneri who has a decent home record against their opponents.
