Lazio head into this clash with Danilo Cataldi suspended, while Patric and Mattia Zaccagni are both ruled out through injury.

Match Odds

Atalanta are 11/10 to win, the draw is 23/10 and Lazio are 11/4 to claim the three points.

Atalanta to win @ 11/10

Atalanta are thriving at the minute, having won eight of their last 10 games and losing only once in that run. They’ve progressed to the final four of the Coppa Italia with big wins over Sassuolo and AC Milan, while they’ve grabbed fourth place as they seek a return to the Champions League.

Meanwhile, Lazio are also into the next round of the cup and they are chasing down the top four. However, they have fallen short in recent big tests and that’s a concern going into this trip.

The Biancocelesti lost 3-0 to Inter Milan in the Super Cup last month, before returning to league action with a 0-0 draw against ninth-placed Napoli.

As for Atalanta, they come into this game with one of the best home records in Serie A. Heading into the weekend, only Juventus have secured more points at home than their 25. They have picked up eight wins at their own ground, while they head into this contest having won their last six in a row at home.

Meanwhile, Lazio have struggled away from home this term. They have lost five of their 10 away trips, including losing all three visits to their fellow top-seven sides. As such, the hosts are great value for the victory at 11/10.

Atalanta to win to nil @ 11/5

With Lazio having failed to score in their last two matches, backing a home win to nil is also worth considering. The hosts have won to nil in 55% of their home league games this season, including each of their previous three league games at Gewiss Stadium.

Lazio have scored just two times across their last four games, while Atalanta have conceded only seven times in their 11 home matches. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men are good value for a win to nil, as they’re priced at 11/5 for a victory and another clean sheet.

On top of that, Atalanta head into this one in scoring form. The hosts average 2.18 goals per home game, while they’ve scored two or more in four of their last five starts. They can continue that run against Lazio, so consider the home side for a 2-0 victory at 17/2.
