Lazio vs Atalanta Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The battle for UEFA Champions League football in Italy takes centre stage on Sunday as Lazio host Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico. Both teams have two of the most exciting attacks in Serie A and are tipped to produce over 2.5 goals at odds of 1.66. The visitors have been in good form lately and have enough quality to earn a draw in Rome.

SS Lazio Form & Team News


Lazio earned a 2-1 victory at Sampdoria in their last Italian Serie A fixture. Felipe Caicedo's first half brace gave them a two-goal lead before the hosts pulled one back after the restart.

I Biancoceleste are making a late push for a top four finish as they sit five points behind the visitors in the final UEFA Champions League place with four matches left to play. Simone Inzaghi's men have won their last two fixtures and are valued at 2.20 to win on Sunday.

Top scorer Ciro Immobile was a second half substitute last time out and the striker is set to return to the starting lineup on Sunday. Caicedo is also expected to retain his place in attack following his brace at Sampdoria.

Atalanta BC Form & Team News


Atalanta are coming off a 2-0 victory at home against struggling Udinese last time out in Serie A. Marten de Roon opened the scoring from the penalty spot late in the second half before Mario Pasalic added the second five minutes from time.

The result means La Dea are up to fourth on the table, one point above their closest rivals in the Champions League race. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men are on a three-match winning run which includes a victory at Napoli and are priced at 3.10 to triumph at the Stadio Olimpico.

Duvan Zapata remains the standout player for Atalanta with 21 goals this season. The Colombian striker has scored five times in his last eight Serie A matches and is set to continue in attack while Josip Ilicic is also expected to return after missing the win over Udinese.

Lazio vs Atalanta Head to Head


Lazio have a 20-10 edge with 10 draws from 40 previous matches against Atalanta. Three of the last five fixtures have seen over 2.5 goals while both teams have drawn two of their last three meetings. Both teams are also set to contest the Coppa Italia final in two weeks.

Lazio vs Atalanta Match Up


Ciro Immobile will be the one to watch for Lazio as the striker looks to add to his 14 Serie A goals this season. His combination with Caicedo in attack could prove difficult to cope with for the Atalanta backline.

Atalanta always carry a major threat in attack with the excellent Duvan Zapata leading the line. The Colombian is often a handful for defenders and should trouble the Lazio rearguard alongside Ilicic, who has four goals in his last eight matches.
