Atalanta - Lazio Prediction, Picks and Tips
With the end of the season looming, there is a great track for the final place in the Champions League. Meetings last week saw three different sides in the fourth, with Atalanta finishing ahead of the rest. They were able to beat Udinese 2-0 on Monday night, which put them within a point of Rome. The battle for the fourth is likely to reach the last day, especially since it extends to Lazio in the eighth. That makes this meeting potentially decisive in the fight between the first four. Can visitors survive another difficult trip?
Lazio managed to achieve a decent 2-1 victory in Sampdoria last weekend, but that success was not enough to place them in European places. They are heading to this match against four points of Atalanta, so they will be looking for a vital victory to keep them in the first four places. After his heartbreaking defeat of the last day last season, the first four are his great goal in this period. However, the irregular shape in recent weeks has left them in the rest of the package. Will that hurt again on Sunday? This clash is also a warm-up for the Coppa Italia final next month, which is a great occasion for both sides. However, Atalanta could make history by securing his first season in the Champions League. After his recent adventures in the Europa League, that would be a great step forward for the team that has come from nowhere to settle in the top six in Italy. The Dea is showing that it has the talent to make a push among the first four, while they could eliminate one of their rivals by fourth by winning in Lazio.
A defeat here effectively rules out Lazio from the pursuit of the Champions League. A difference of seven points with three games to play is not something they can change when there are three sides between them and the fourth. That is a very real concern for Atalanta, as they are facing the third best visitor record in Serie A this weekend. The visitors are undefeated in nine league matches, while they have won three of their last four on the road.
