The most awaited match of the day in Serie A will take place in Bergamo, on Atleti Azzurri D’Italia, where Atalanta vs Lazio will duel for the three points at stake.
Atalanta – A very good season
Gian Piero Gasperini managed to form an extremely offensive and dangerous team, which obtained and still obtains remarkable results. She was eliminated from the Cup by Fiorentina, but it’s better that way, because she can focus on the championship, but also on the Champions League. Few people expected, but Atalanta reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, after passing Valencia in the eighth round with an overall score of 8-4. In the championship it is on the fourth place with 51 points, and the objective is to occupy a place in the Champions League, ie the places 1-4. There are 12 more games to play, and the chances of achieving the goal are quite high. The interruption of the championship did not matter at all for Atalanta. Before the break, they won 7-2 against Lecce, and the previous stage prevailed against Sassuolo 4-1. On his own field, he won only seven games out of 13, but he practiced an extremely offensive football, with an average of three goals scored. The main scorer is Ciro Immobile with 27 successes and will most likely win the top scorer trophy.
- Probable team (3-4-1-2): Gollini – Palomino, Djimsiti, Toloi – Gosens, Freuler, Roon, Hateboer – Gomez – Ilicic, Zapata
Lazio – Very close to the first place
Simone Inzaghi has been on the technical bench since 2016 and it seems that the stars have lined up for the current season. With 12 stages before the end of the season, he is on the second place with 62 points, four points away from the first place, but he has one less played match than Juventus. He has the best defense, with only 23 goals conceded. The offensive is not bad either, where it is among the two teams, which has an average of two goals scored per game. In matches played on foreign soil, he does really well. In the 12 games he suffered only two defeats. The previous stage played at home with Bologna and won without much trouble with 2-0. He already has a trophy won this season, the Super Cup, in front of Juventus. In the Europa League he failed to finish in the first two places in the group, but in this way he can focus more on the championship.
- Probable team (3-5-2): Strakosha – Patric, Acerbi, Radu – Lazzari, Savic, Parolo, Alberto, Jony – Caicedo, Immobile
