Lazio is hosting Atalanta at Stadio Olimpico in the postponed game of round 1 in the Italian Serie A.
Lazio has been doing well, and they haven’t lost any of their last 5 games, both in the preseason and Serie A. the Serie A has started well for Lazio, and they were playing against Cagliari on the road in that game. Lazio has had 56% of ball possession in that match, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a decent 85% of the correct passes. With 1 goal in each half, Lazio ahs won this game 0-2. Immobile and Lazzari have each scored 1 goal for Lazio so far, while Marusic added 1 assist. Lulic, Proto, and Felipe are injured, while Vavro and Muriqi are still questionable. Lazio has had a fantastic chance to take Juventus of their throne last season, and before the break, they were just a couple of points away, but the terrible form after the restart has cost Lazio dearly, and they have ended the season in 4th place. Lazio was able to keep their key players, and I think we can expect another good season from them, and who knows, maybe they will find themselves in the title race once again.
Atalanta has picked up where they left off last season, and that is playing great soccer, and scoring a ton of goals. In their first match in Serie A this season, Atalanta was playing against Torino on the road, and they were the better team with 56% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 85% of the correct passes. Atalanta started this game by conceding a goal in the 11th minute, but they were able to turn the game around with 3 goals in the first half. The half time result was 2-3. In the 54th minute, Atalanta has scored another goal, and they have won this match 2-4. Gollini, Pessina, Miranchuk, and Piccini are all injured, and they will miss this match. Hateboer, Gomez, De Roon, and Muriel have all scored 1 goal for Atalanta so far this season, while Gomez has 2 assists, Muriel and Zapata each have 1 assist. Atalanta also came close to taking the title from Juventus last season, but three draws were enough for Atalanta to fall behind Juventus, and in the end, Atalanta ended up in third place in the Serie A standings, and they will be playing in the Champions League once again. Not only Atalanta was able to keep their best players, but they also signed some reinforcements, and I believe they are one of the biggest favorites to win the title.
Atalanta hasn’t lost any of their last 11 games on the road, while Lazio hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games. Both teams are playing in great form, but the trends are on Lazio’s side in this matchup. I think the only logical choice here is goals as both teams are offensively focused, while their defenses are not their strongest part.
