Lazio vs Atalanta Prediction & Betting tips
On Wednesday evening, there is a special kind of showdown in the Italian Serie A. With Lazio Rome and Atalanta Bergamo, the two sometimes strongest attack departments in Italy meet. If you consider how the offensives of the two teams last presented, a spectacle seems to be inevitable on Wednesday.
Last week, Atalanta Bergamo made it 4-2 in Turin for a real shooting festival. “La Dea” from Bergamo continues the strong offensive performances from last season. It is quite possible that this will be followed up this season.
The Biancocelesti from Rome started the new Serie A season successfully with an away win in Cagliari. During the week, Lazio will now play the catch-up game against Atalanta, which was originally supposed to take place on the planned first matchday of Serie A. After the strong performance of his team at the weekend, coach Inzaghi can be confident that they can claim their second win in a row.
On the first day of Serie A, Ciro Immobile already showed why he won the golden shoe last season and was voted Europe’s best goalscorer. The striker from Lazio took another shot and scored his first goal of the new season last weekend.
Since the clean slate was also kept in Cagliari, coach Simone Inzaghi can be more than satisfied with the performance of his team. How the defense goes against Atalanta’s strong offensive remains to be seen for the time being, after all, there was an open exchange of blows between the two offensives last season.
The Biancocelesti have to flex their muscles on the offensive in order to master the upcoming match against the black and blue from Bergamo. Compared to the starting XI from last week, no changes are expected in the Lazio squad. Newcomer Vedat Muriqi is still in quarantine and not available to Inzaghi.
Proto, Felipe, Vavro, Lukaku and Lulic are still out due to injuries. Last season, Lazio was the second strongest home team in Serie A and only dropped five times in 19 home games. One of the five point losses was against Wednesday opponent Atalanta, of all places.
At Atalanta Bergamo, the offensive engine is still running at full speed. “La Dea” provided an offensive spectacle right at the start of the season in Serie A. In the away game against FC Turin there were six goals – four in favor of the black-blue team from Bergamo. It is quite possible that the offensive will also deliver a shooting festival in Rome.
In the last season 98 goals were scored in 38 games. As expected, the defensive was often neglected. This was also the case last weekend, when two goals were conceded in the first half. Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini is unlikely to change the offensive game philosophy of his team.
After all, it was the strong offensive performance that gave Atalanta Bergamo last year’s success. The achievements abroad were also commendable last season. There was only one defeat for Atalanta Bergamo in 19 away games. “La Dea” had an impressive away record of 11-7-1 and was the second strongest away team behind champions Juventus Turin.
It is quite possible that this season’s away record will continue. After all, the difficult away game in Turin was mastered with flying colors. On Wednesday evening, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team will travel to Rome with the best cast. The coach is likely to forego changes in the starting XI.
Duvan Zapata, the best Atalanta goalscorer last season, was still without a goal on matchday one. If the black and blue striker scores a goal in the second game of the season, Lazio vs. Atalanta Bergamo attractive betting odds can be tapped.
