The clash between Lazio and Atalanta is a clash for Europe. Both teams are hoping to finish the Serie A season among the top 6, meaning that every point counts. Atalanta are going into this game with high confidence after beating Napoli and Udinese in the previous two rounds. Lazio aren’t in such a great form, but they’re playing at home. So, what to expect from the clash at the Olimpico? Find out in the Lazio vs Atalanta prediction and betting tips!
They’re currently at the 8th spot, but with four more round to go, they still have a pretty decent chance to secure a spot in Europe. Their ambition is the Champions League, but to get there, they would have to leapfrog a couple of teams, including their next opponent Atalanta, who currently have four points more.
Lazio did drop a few points lately, e.g. by losing to Chievo in April, but this team has won against Sampdoria in the previous round, which has certainly done wonders for their confidence. Another reason why their fans should be optimistic ahead of the Atalanta duel is that Lazio have been pretty decent at the home turf this season.
They’ve won 9 home matches, losing 4 and playing draw the same number of times. Before losing to Chievo at the Olimpico, they were in a pretty impressive run with 10 points won in 4 home matches. They’re surely hoping to get back in the shape and a good result against Atalanta would certainly do them well. But, it’s not only up to them. In the next part of our Lazio vs Atalanta prediction, we got to talk about the away team as well.
Lazio players have been okay at home, but Atalanta have been pretty brilliant in away matches this season. Actually, only two other teams have won more points on the road, Napoli and Juvenus. Another thing that’s giving Atalanta fans confidence is that they’ve been in an amazing form lately. They’re without a defeat since February and have won against some real heavyweights since.
Just two rounds ago, Atalanta won against Napoli in Naples. They also played 0:0 with Inter in Milan in April, which is giving them the confidence they can beat Lazio on Sunday. The problem is that they have a very bad record against the team from the Italian capital, especially when the games were played at the Olimpico. In fact, Atalanta have lost 7 out of previous 7 matches against Lazio in Rome.
On the bright side, they don’t have too many problems with injuries. In fact, most of their key men are fit and ready for the big game, even though there are a couple of guys struggling to get back in shape after injuries. Speaking of injuries, before we proceed to Lazio vs Atalanta betting tips, let’s talk about the latest injury news from both squads, as well as their potential starting lineups.
