Lazio vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Lazio regained the much-needed confidence with an important pair of wins over Milan (0-1 in Coppa Italia) and Sampdoria (1-2 in Serie A). The winning thread did come as a surprise after a shocking home loss to rock-bottomed Chievo in the league tie in mid-April. The loss to I Gialloblu significantly halted team’s push for the Champions League football.
However, Simone Inzaghi’s men have a nice opportunity to close the gap behind fourth-placed Atalanta down to just one point on Sunday afternoon when La Dea come to visit the capital for the 35th round clash at Stadio Olimpico.
The visitors have been in great shape lately. A run of four wins and two draws in past six league ties saw them jump on to the fourth place in the league standings and become genuine contenders for a place in the Champions League next season.
Lazio vs Atalanta: Head-to-head
Lazio were much more successful historically as they lead the head to head tie by 10 wins coming into 41st meeting with La Dea.
Biancocelesti are, however, winless in past three meetings with Atalanta, including this term’s 1-0 defeat away in Bergamo.
These two likes are going to play each other in the Coppa Italia final ten days after this league clash.
Lazio vs Atalanta: Prediction
Atalanta significantly improved their defensive performances lately. Gianpiero Gasperini’s men allowed only one goal in past four league games even though they played the likes of Inter Milan and Napoli along the way.
Inzaghi also look to have found the right formula for keeping things quiet at the back lately. Lazio shipped just one goal in last two games against Milan and Sampdoria. Given the match has a massive importance for both sides, we don’t expect any of two managers to take unnecessary risks going forward.
The Under 2.5 goals FT bet has an enormous value at the odds of 2.20. You can also back draw at the half time at 2.30.
