Atalanta vs Lazio Prediction and Betting Preview 24 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 3-2
Atalanta vs Lazio PredictionA year ago, this fixture would not have been greeted with so much enthusiasm as it has witnessed this time around. Traditionally regarded as mere top-half outfits, Atalanta and Lazio have risen to the occasion this season, to challenge for a top-four finish.
Match status: 2019-20 Serie A - Matchweek 27
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia (Bergamo)
Who would have though Lazio would be giving serial Serie A champions Juventus a run for their money this term? Certainly not me! However, this is exactly how affairs have played out in the Serie A – Lazio sitting right behind the Bianconeri on the standings.

Having garnered 62 points from 26 games, the Eagles are no doubt one of the strongest sides in the league. Trailing table-toppers Juventus by only four points, Lazio will be bent on securing a positive result against Atalanta to remain in the running for league success.

Scoring goals for fun, Atalanta sit fourth on the log and are comfortably placed above Roma with a massive six points separating them from the fifth-placed outfit. Scheduled to take on fellow free-scoring side Lazio on Wednesday, expect a goal-fest at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia come kickoff.

Atalanta vs Lazio Team News

Atalanta’s attacking frontline has been the most efficient across Europe’s top-five elite leagues. La Dea cannot seem to stop scoring goals with a league high-record of 74 goals. In fact, they have plunged in 14 more goals than the second-best attacking side in Serie A. Interestingly, this side is Lazio.

Playing host to Sassuolo on the last match-day, the visitors must have been scared shitless as they emerged from the tunnel of the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. The thoughts of coming up against a free-scoring side like Atalanta can leave any side bewildered even before kick-off.

Sassuolo’s greatest fears came alive as they were totally outclassed by their high-flying opposition. Goals from Djimsiti, Zapata and Bourabia ensured that the Neroverdi were easily dispatched. The visitors were knocked for six with Atalanta posting an impressive 4-1 win on the board.

Meanwhile, Lazio were last seen in action in February prior to the COVID-19 break. They welcomed tenth-placed Bologna with open arms while looking to stab them from behind. In a fiercely-contested affair at the Stadio Olimpico, the Biancocelesti made sure of the three points.

Dominating proceedings from start to finish, Gasperini’s charges never really looked like losing the game. Firing ahead early on through Alberto in the 18th minute, Lazio looked set for a comprehensive win. Correa sealed the victory soon after to salvage maximum points.

For this fixture, two of the best offensive Serie A teams will be squaring-off. With Atalanta registering 74 goals, Lazio have managed 60. However, worryingly for La Dea, they have struggled to keep opposition at bay having conceded 35 goal so far.

Meanwhile, Lazio are faring much better on the defensive front, conceding just 23 goals this term. With this superb record, they are easily the best defensive side in the league. However, the Biancocelesti’s defense will be scared to death at the prospect of coming up against this Atalanta side.

Atalanta vs Lazio Predictions

One thing is for sure in this game – there will be a plethora of goals. The reverse fixture saw both sides play out a six-goal thriller where neither side refused to give in. They settled for a thrilling 3-3 draw in the end.

Noteworthily, Lazio have not played a competitive game since February – more than four months ago. They are likely to be very rusty here. Compared to the opposition, Atalanta have already returned to post-COVID action with a comprehensive 4-1 win over Sassuolo.

La Dea are already back in action and have not let their guards down in anyway. Taking these into context, Atalanta are very likely to secure victory here. Expect no less than five goals between these two sides come kickoff with the home side nicking a narrow victory.
