Lazio vs Atalanta Predictions and Betting Tips
There's action aplenty in the Italian top-flight with three games set to feature. Most football fans will be looking forward to the last game of the day as Lazio welcome Atalanta to the Stadio Olimpico. Having won their opening games, both sides will be keen on making it two for two. Who gets all three points in this highly-promising encounter?
Last season's doubleheader between these two sides turned out to be an amazing watch. In both games combined, we saw 11 goals with fans barely spared moments to catch their breath. With the first leg ending in a 3-all draw, Gasperini's side was the happier of the two teams at the end of the second having won via a last-gasp winner. Will this year's instalment live up to the billing?
Lazio comfortable on opening day
Inzaghi must have been disappointed with his side's performance in the second half of the 2019/20 season. With the capital club in the discussion for the Scudetto as at January, they capitulated from then on, ultimately finishing in 4th place.
Lazio started the season just as they would have wanted as they visited Cagliari on Saturday. They got off the mark as early as the 4th minute via a Lazari strike. It wasn't until the 74th minute before they doubled their lead with Immobile opening his account for the season. Cagliari probed from then on but couldn't find a way through the Lazio defence as the game ended 2-0.
The Orobici continued from where they left off
Gasperini and Co. had a very famous run in the 2019/20 season. A 3rd place finish coupled with a quarterfinal exit in the UEFA Champions League can be deemed a successful season for Bergamo-based outfit. Following the commencement of the new season, they would be bidding top last season's performance.
Atalanta never lost their goal-scoring touch over the summer as they put four past Torino last weekend. Although they conceded two, they would be more pleased with the fact that they got off to a confidence-boosting victory as they ran out 4-2 winners. Papu Gomez produced a man of the match performance with a goal and an assist.
