Lazio go into round 35 of the Serie A season looking for the three points needed to drive themselves towards the top-five, with the hosts sitting three off Roma in fifth. Here are our top Lazio v Atalanta betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
It looks like a realistic goal between now and the finish line, but they are still in with a shout of grabbing a Champions League slot, Atalanta currently four better. There’s all to play for and despite Juventus making a mockery of the competition, we’ll have an interesting finish on our hands outside of the champions.
The home side have won two of their last three and were spotted grabbing a win in their most recent start when edging a 2-1 away to Sampdoria last Sunday. Caidedo grabbed a double that day, both goals coming inside the first 20 minutes of the match and that was enough to see off a fightback led by Quagliarella on 57, following the second off of Ramirez before the break. That double booking gifted Lazio the win and they are 27/20 – best price at Unibet – to grab another.
Atalanta Aiming High
Atalanta have pushed themselves into the top-four of the table on the back of a strong run of form that has seen them win 11 of the last 15 points available. Three wins and a couple of draws – two victories in their last two – has Atalanta in with a real shout of improving to the Champions League stages in summer and it would be nothing short of what they deserved following a strong year. Having done the hard bit, they will be determined to hold on.
The visitors make this trip with plenty to be proud of but can’t afford to sit back admire their work just yet as there’s no more than four points between themselves in fourth and Lazio down in eighth. We know from experience anything can happen in the Italian premier division, and usually does. Atalanta scored an impressive win over Fiorentina at home and followed that with a 2-0 cheer when welcoming Udinese to two, a result that sent them into the top-four. Will Atalanta complete the hat-trick? 21/10 at Ladbrokes says there’s every chance. Prefer to avoid the unpredictability of calling a winner in this match?
