Atalanta vs Lazio: Recent History
La Dea have looked incredibly strong this season and remained undefeated after their first 10 Serie A matches, only dropping points in draws with Udinese, Cremonese and Milan. Their last outing was a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sassuolo and they’ll be confident of securing another positive result in front of their adoring supporters this weekend.
Lazio have suffered a slight dip in recent weeks after a good start to the campaign, with draws against Udinese and Sturm Graz leaving the team a little frustrated. The loss of star striker Ciro Immobile has heavily reduced the team’s attacking capabilities and Maurizio Sarri will have to tinker with his frontline to try and put Atalanta in danger.
Last season, Lazio picked up a 2-2 draw away to Atalanta and a 0-0 draw at home, results that both sides will be hoping to improve upon this campaign.
Expected Starting Lineups
Gian Piero Gasperini will have to do without the injured Rafael Toloi and Davide Zappacosta, and Jose Luis Palomino is still unavailable following a failed drug test.
Lazio only have one absence but it’s a big one; Immobile will not return until after the World Cup due to a hamstring injury, leaving the Roman club without their star man.
Atalanta (3-4-2-1): Musso; Okoli, Demiral, Djimsiti; Hateboer, De Roon, Koopmeiners, Soppy; Pasalic, Lookman; Muriel.
Lazio (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Casale, Romagnoli, Marusic; Milinkovic-Savic, Vecino, Luis Alberto; Pedro, Felipe Anderson, Zaccagni.
