Atalanta is hosting Lazio at Gewiss Stadium in round 20 in the Italian Serie A.
Atalanta is undefeated in their last 14 games, and they are once again scoring a lot of goals. Earlier this week Atalanta has solid Papu Gomez to Sevilla, but now it’s the time to sign a replacement. Atalanta was playing against Lazio earlier this week in Coppa Italia, and they have won that game 3-2, and it was a beauty. Atalanta has had only 33% of ball possession in that game, 8 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 72% of the correct passes. After getting ahead in the 7th minute, Atalanta has conceded 2 goals, and the result was 2-2 at half time. With a player less on the field and a scored goal in the 57th minute, Atalanta has won this game 3-2. As far as Serie A goes, Atalanta is now in 4th place in the standings with 36 points, 44 scored goals, and 23 conceded goals. Muriel is the leading goalscorer for Atalanta with 11 goals, while Zapata added 8 goals. Ilicic has added 6 assists. Pasalic is injured, Hateboer is questionable, while Gosens is suspended because of the yellow cards. Atalanta is one of the best offensive teams in the league, if not the best, but as we can see their defense is shaky, but I expect Atalanta to stay in the Champions League spot.
Before their loss to Atalanta earlier this week, Lazio was playing really well, and they were on a 5-game winning streak. Lazio has climbed the standings, and they are getting close to the Champions League. Lazio is now in 7th place with 34 points, 32 scored goals, and 26 conceded goals. In their last Serie A game, Lazio was hosting Sassuolo, and they were the better team in that game with 49% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. Lazio was losing in the 6th minute, but they were able to tie the score in the 25th minute. With another goal in the 71st minute, Lazio has won this match 2-1. Immobile is once again in good form this season, and he has scored 13 goals so far, while Alberto and Caicedo added 6 goals each. Milinkovic-Savic added 4 goals and 5 assists. Proto, Felipe, and Alberto are all injured for Lazio. We know that Lazio is a good team, but they have been struggling with consistency this season, and the question is if they can get back on the winning track after a loss earlier this week.
Lazio hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Atalanta, while Atalanta hasn’t lost in their last 8 home games. The trends are slightly on Lazio’s side in this matchup, but I’m not sure they have what it takes to bounce back with a win. I will stick to goals in this one.
