Atalanta vs Lazio
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Wednesday, 15th May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Atalanta has been tearing it up in Italy for quite some time. They had a league fixture against this same opponent, Lazio, two weeks back. Despite being on the road, Atalanta managed to deal out a 1-3 loss to Lazio.
The hosts had drawn the first blood. And quite early so. In the third minute, the hosts took the lead. But it was not long-lasting. Atalanta soon found the equalizer. As the match went on, the guests slowly brought the game under control. Later in the second half, Atalanta added two more goals to complete the formalities for the day.
Coming to their league standings, with ominous form, Atalanta is in possession of a Champions League spot, while Lazio will probably have to bid goodbye to their European dreams even if they win the remaining two fixtures.

Atalanta vs Lazio Prediction
Atalanta won the last five matches in a row and is unbeaten in the last 13. The team also managed to score two or more goals in three of the last four fixtures. Lazio, meanwhile, was winless in five of their last nine match-ups and lost four of them as well.
Importantly, just two weeks back, Atalanta won against Lazio, in a league fixture, despite being on the road. They also put three goals past the home net. Moreover, Atalanta won the last two h2h games and registered six of the last nine wins at this venue. As things stand, expect Atalanta to lift the title, but do keep in mind that this is the final.
Lazio will not roll over after reaching up to this point. Already their European dreams look bleak. This might be their only chance for glory this season. The team will give the fight of their lives. Adding to this – seven of the last nine h2h clashes, and five of the last six at this venue had goals from both teams. Taking into consideration the nature of this tie, expect the same to happen this Wednesday.
