Lazio host Atalanta
Two very good teams will face each other on Wednesday when Lazio host Atalanta in a game from the first round of the Serie A. Let’s preview it in our football betting tips this weekend.
Lazio started their Serie A season just in the way they wanted to – with a win. The Eagles faced Cagliari away from home and celebrated a 2-0 win at the Sardegna Arena. Manuel Lazzari opened the score after just four minutes of playing while in the 74th minute the Golden Boot winner Ciro Immobile scored his first goal for the season. Adam Marusic provided the assist.
Lazio’s goals didn’t change much compared to the previous season. Simone Inzaghi’s team will fight once again for a Top 4 finish. Surely Lazio would like to challenge for the title as well, but last season they saw how difficult this is.
Atalanta were merciless in their first game for the new season. La Dea also played away from home and traveled to face Torino. Atalanta once again showed their firepower and scored four times for a 4-2 win at the Olimpico Grande Torino. Alejandro Gomez, Luis Muriel, Hans Hateboer and Marten de Roon scored for Gian Piero Gasperini’s team.
Last season Atalanta almost reached 100 goals in the Serie A, so clearly the team’s forward line is going to be their primary weapon again. The club managed to keep most of his stars, despite some interest after reaching the Champions League 1/4-finals.
That’s our football betting tips this weekend for the Serie A derby game between Lazio and Atalanta at the Olimpico. Two major Top 4 contenders are facing each other on Wednesday, so we expect a beautiful game. Both teams know very well how to score goals, so this is exactly what we want to see – attacking football and goals.
