Lazio and Atalanta will meet in the 3rd round of the Serie A in a match played at Olimpico. Having won the inaugural games, both sides will want to make two out of two. Last season’s doubleheader between these two sides turned out to be an amazing watch. In both games combined, we saw 11 goals with fans barely spared moments to catch their breath.
Lazio vs Atalanta Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Lazio vs Atalanta Predictions
Inzaghi must have been disappointed with his side’s performance in the second half of the last season. Although the hosts were the primary challengers for Scudetto around January, they capitulated from then on, ultimately finishing in 4th place. Lazio started the season just as they would have wanted as they visited Cagliari on Saturday. They got off the mark as early as the 4th minute via a Lazari strike. It wasn’t until the 74th minute before they doubled their lead with Immobile opening his account for the season. Ciro Immobile was the best scorer of the Serie A last season with 35 goals, he scored the most goals in Europe, a great player who does not spare the opponent’s net. Sergej Milinković-Savić plays perfectly without a mistake, he is strong, and it is difficult to take the ball away from this guy. Many clubs are interested in signing him. Luiz Felipe (Ankle Injury), Denis Vavro (Pubitis), Senad Lulic (Ankle Surgery), Jordan Lukaku (Knee Problems), Vedat Muriqi (Strain), and Silvio Proto (Arm Injury) are unavailable for Lazio manager Simone Inzaghi.
Atalanta surprised many football fans last season. Third place, together with the quarterfinal exit from the UEFA Champions League, can be considered a successful season for the team from Bergamo. Atalanta never lost their goal-scoring touch over the summer as they put four past Torino last weekend. It smells like a phenomenal season for the team from Bergamo. Pope Gomez was a man of the match with a goal and an assist. Muriel, Hateboer, and De Roon finished off the opponent. Midfielder Remo Freuler found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the game on the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Pasalic enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Duvan Zapata scored 18 goals in the League and one goal in the Champions League last season, he is fast, he has reasonable ball control, and many teams are ready to give a fortune for his arrival. He is a player for great deeds. List of injured players: Cristiano Piccini (Fractured Kneecap), Marco Tumminello (Sideband injury), Pierluigi Gollini (Cruciate Ligament Injury), and Aleksey Miranchuk (Hamstring Injury)
Both teams are heading into this game, having won six each of the last 16 meetings. It won’t be surprising if this one ends in a draw. We expect both sides to a goal-goal game just like they did in seven of the last nine meetings.
