Lazio vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
Both these teams had legitimate shots at winning the title the last season, and in the end fell agonizingly close to it. However, after nine straight years of domination, Juve no longer look invincible. With dedication and consistency, they could be taken down.
This year, these two teams along with Inter will be trying to do just that.
Offense is really where both these squads have shown their quality, and it’s no wonder that either of these two outscored the Old Lady.
The new campaign has seen both these teams start with a win, and they would try their best to keep the streak going on.
But at most, only one of the two squads could extend their winning run, and considering that the victor of this encounter will have a great momentum going forward – expect a fierce encounter.
And sure enough, taking into account the pure offensive potential from both sides, expect a goal-fest as well.

Lazio vs Atalanta: Prediction
Le Aquile recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Cagliari. In the meantime, La Dea registered a 2-4 win on the road the past game week, against Torino.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s men were one of the best offensive teams in the whole of Europe the last season, as they slotted in a total of 98 goals from their 38 league fixtures. And they missed a ticket to the semifinal of the Champions League by a whisker.
In addition, they had scored two or more goals in 18 of their preceding 24 overall matches, and are on an unbeaten run of 11 games away from home. Of these, eight were wins as well.
Meanwhile, Le Aquile have the in-form Ciro Immobile, who won the European Golden Boot in 2019-20, and they are also firing on all cylinders. They were also unbeaten in nine of their previous ten overall fixtures, and remained so in 24 of their former 27 appearances at home.
Also note that they had scored two or more goals in 19 of their preceding 28 home fixtures. And on top of all that, h2h encounters between these two teams (especially recently) have had plenty of goals.
On that note, expect another high-scoring match-up this Wednesday as well.
