Prediction published on January 19, 2022 at 9:45 PM - Modified on January 21, 2022 at 12:49 AM
Lazio host Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico in the Serie A. The hosts are placed eighth with thirty-five points from the first twenty-two matches while the visitors are fourth with forty-two points from their twenty-one games. While Atalanta are just within the fray for the race for the title, Lazio will be hoping to secure a European qualification place by the end of the season. The home side come into the game with a 1-0 win over Udinese at home in the Coppa Italia. They are now on a two-game winning streak with their last Serie A game also ending in a 3-0 win over Salernitana. Lazio have had over 2.5 goals in six out of their last seven matches, which is a result of their inconsistent defensive performance. They hav just one clean sheet in their last ten Serie A matches as well.
Atalanta have been a tad bit more consistent when it comes to defending with numbers. However, when it comes to away fixtures, the plight of Atalanta is almost the same as Lazio. They have just one clean sheet in their last four away matches and have had over 2.5 goals in six out of their last nine matches. However, despite their inconsistent defensive display, Atalanta are on a four-game unbeaten run and come into the game with a goalless draw with Inter. It also must be noted that the last five meetings between Atalanta and Lazio have had over 2.5 goals.
