Atalanta vs Lazio Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Coppa Italia final between Atalanta and Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico is predicted to produce goals. This is the third match between both teams this season and the two previous fixtures produced over 2.5 goals.

A similar outcome is predicted at odds of 1.80 while Atalanta are tipped to secure the victory at 2.70 having shown good form lately with five straight wins.

Atalanta BC Form & Team News


Atalanta overcame Fiorentina 5-3 on aggregate to progress to the Coppa Italia Final. A 3-3 draw in Florence was followed by a 2-1 home victory. Gian Piero Gasperini's men also eliminated champions Juventus on their way to final.

La Dea are well on course to securing a top four finish in Serie A and will view the Coppa Italia title as the perfect culmination to their successful campaign. They head into the final in fine form having won their last five matches and are priced at 2.70 to continue that winning run on Wednesday. I think that represents value and will be backing Gasperini's side to make it six in a row.

Atalanta are one of the most exciting teams in the Serie A this season and have found the net 11 times in their five matches. Duvan Zapata has five goals in his last eight matches across all competitions and will be a popular choice in the first and anytime goalscorer markets.

SS Lazio Form & Team News 


Lazio saw off AC Milan 1-0 on aggregate to book their place in the Coppa Italia final. They were held to a 0-0 draw in the first leg before Joaquin Correa's strike gave them the victory at the San Siro in the second leg.

I Biancoceleste were victorious in their last outing, claiming a 2-1 Italian Serie A win at Cagliari with Correa once again on the score sheet. Simone Inzaghi's men are priced at 2.60 for a win but a bet on over 2.5 goals looks a better punt as this fixture is notorious for goals.

Lazio have been plagued by inconsistency lately with four victories and as many defeats in their last nine matches. Top scorer Ciro Immobile is set to return to the starting line up on Wednesday having been a substitute against Cagliari.

Lazio have claimed 20 wins with 10 draws while Atalanta have 11 victories from the previous 41 matches. Four of the last six meetings have seen over 2.5 goals while Atalanta did the Serie A double over the capital club this season.

The last meeting was as recent as 5 May with Atalanta emergindg victorious 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico. Marco Parolo gave Lazio an early lead but three unanswered goals to Duvan Zapata, Timoty Castagne and a Walace own goal gave Atalanta an important win which will give them plenty of confidence going into the Coppa Italia Final.
