Atalanta vs Lazio Preview

Atalanta vs Lazio

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Atleti Azzurri d’Italia

Date: 17th December 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

Lazio are currently in a really bad place form wise and they would be desperate to end their winless run when they face Atalanta in this game.

On Thursday, the visitors recorded yet another disappointing result when they were beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League however they still qualified for the knockout round of the competition.

Lazio are now winless in 6 games.

During that period of time Lazio have drawn their last 4 consecutive Serie A games and lost their last two Europa League games, so they need to turn things around here with a victory.

Atalanta have also had a very unpredictable season and are only behind Lazio by 4 points after their recent 3-1 win at Udinese helped them close the gap on the out-of-form visitors.

Prior to that win, they were beaten 2-1 here by Napoli and also lost 3-1 at Empoli.

Atalanta have been scoring goals and their manager has refused to change his attacking approach no matter the opponent.   That approach could see them net here again, but their defence will need to do better to shut out Lazio.

The last three meetings between these sides have ended in 2 draws and a Lazio win.

Bookmakers have priced Atalanta up as steady favourites to come out on top at home.

Goal markets point to an exciting game as over 2.5 goals is trading odds-on at present.

Ciro Immobile is favourite with bookies to score the first goal followed by Alejandro Gomez and Duvan Zapata.
