Atalanta Preview

2018/19 is shaping up to be one of Atalanta’s best ever seasons as they look to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League for the first time in their history and secure a win tomorrow that would see them win the Italian Cup for just the second ever time and the first since 1963. It’s been a remarkable campaign for the club led by manager Gian Piero Gasperini and their style and approach to the game has been so refreshing. Atalanta are Serie A’s entertainers and it’s been their fearless attitude that has rewarded them so well in the Coppa Italia. No team has scored more than them in the league this season and although this team could very well be ripped up come the summer, the players have a chance to make some history, starting with this game tomorrow. Atalanta’s route to the final has been an impressive one, most notably their defeat of Juventus at the end of January. The 3-0 win illustrated just how dangerous this team can be and issued Juve their first domestic up defeat in five seasons. Their two-legged semi-final with Fiorentina was an incredible tie as they eventually triumphed 5-4 on aggregate, earning them their first place in the final of the competition since 1996 when they lost out to the team from Florence.

Lazio Preview

Lazio have fallen out of contention for the European spots in Serie A in recent weeks and it’s now looking as though their best chance of qualification is by winning the Coppa Italia and entering the Europa League next season. Simone Inzaghi has done another good job and would have probably overachieved had his team managed to finish in the top four, but he knows that the club still crave success and will be determined to end the season with some silverware. Like Atalanta, Lazio’s route to the final has included some notable wins having seen off both Milan clubs. Those victories were achieved by being very hard to beat and stifling the opposition, which is something they will likely have to do again in the final if they are to get the better of Atalanta. Inzaghi’s men required penalties to see of Inter before one goal was enough in their two-legged semi-final. Their style is in complete contrast to that of their final opponents, evidenced by the fact they have scored 21 fewer goals in the league. That will not be of concern to Inzaghi, his players or the club’s supporters, however, if it’s Lazio lifting the trophy.

Atalanta v Lazio Betting Advice

These teams met at the beginning of this month in the league, again at the Stadio Olimpico when it was Atalanta who recovered from losing the opening goal to run out 3-1 winners. It was typical performance of theirs and means they will make the same journey tomorrow with absolutely no fear and being roared on by at least half the stadium who are anticipating something special happening. Lazio were far too open on that occasion and it would be no surprise to see them adopt different tactics this time around – similar to those that they have used in previous rounds of this competition.

 

Atalanta have not lost a game since the end of February. Since that defeat they have won nine and drawn and will come into this match absolutely flying as a result. Lazio have not nearly been as consistent with four wins and four losses in their last nine games across all competitions. This is a fixture that traditionally brings with it goals and I was inclined to make the selection accordingly but my concern there is Lazio adopt very negative tactics. Instead, I am putting my faith in this excellent Atalanta team coping with the occasion and having patience to get the victory and lift the trophy for just the second time.
