Lazio plays hosts to Atlanta BC, who travel this weekend to Rome as the Serie A 2021-22 season continues.
Lazio is currently sitting in the 8th spot with 35 points and has a great chance of moving up if it collects three points from this game. A win here will take them to 6th place, ahead of Fiorentina. One of the biggest drivers of Lazio this season has been Ciro Immobile, who has been consistently scoring goals, game after game. The Italian has netted 17 goals so far and was instrumental in the mid-week Coppa Italia win against Udinese, scoring the lone goal of the game in stoppage time.
Lazio as a team has lacked consistency this season but will be pretty confident as they go into this game on the back of a victory against Udinese and a 3-0 drubbing of Salernitana.
Atalanta is in 4th place on the points table with 42 points, and can’t go higher even if they win this game. They can however extend the lead over Juventus, who are breathing down their necks with 41 points. Gian Gasperini has steered his team well and is yet to lose an away game this season. Their last league game was at home, against champions Inter Milan, whom they managed to hold to a draw in a goalless game.
Match prediction and betting tips for Atalanta BC vs Lazio Roma Serie A 2021-22, the match is going to be played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome, on 22nd January 2022.
Both Atalanta and Lazio squads are grappling with fitness problems ahead of this game, and quite a few players will be missing in action from both sides. From Lazio, Mattia, Stefan Radu, Andre Anderson, Toma Basic, and Francesco Acerbi are unlike to feature due to fitness issues, while Danilo Cataldi will be serving his suspension. Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro is in poor physical condition due to lingering effects of COVID, and will most likely give this game a miss
As for Atalanta, Joakim Maehle, Rafael Toloi, Josip Ilicic, Ruslan Malinovsky, Robin Gosens and Duvan Zapata will miss out on this game.
Both the teams seem pretty evenly matched, at least on paper, and this should be an interesting contest. We expect both the teams to score, but the visitors might find themselves slightly ahead. Atalanta has lost just one game to Lazio in the previous five it has played against it. We also think Atalanta comes into this match with better recent form than Lazio.
Bet on Atalanta to win.
We think it is worth the added risk of combining two betting markets in this match. Both teams have scored in the previous five matches that Atalanta and Lazio have played against each other. Goals almost always seem to flow when these teams end up competing and over 2.5 goals have been scored in all five of the most recent matches between them.
This is why we are chasing the odds and combining the bets to get a better return without increasing the risk too much.
