Atalanta vs Lazio: Recent History

Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta have been in strong form over the last six weeks, winning five of their last seven league outings, a run that’s taken them to fourth in the league table. The Bergamo outfit have picked up 36 points from 11 wins, three draws and seven losses.

La Dea have also progressed in the Coppa Italia, reaching the semi-finals after wins over Sassuolo and Milan, and will take part in the Europa League knockout stages after a strong group stage performance.

Atalanta have won their last five home matches at the Gewiss Stadium, last falling to Napoli in a 2-1 defeat back on 25th November.

Lazio had started to find their footing in recent weeks, with five consecutive wins across Serie A and the Coppa Italia, but a Supercoppa Italiana loss to Inter and a draw with Napoli in the league last weekend have started to rock the boat in Formello a little.

The Biancocelesti still sit in a strong position in the race for Champions League qualification, sitting in sixth place just two points behind Atalanta, having picked up 10 wins, four draws and seven losses.

When these two teams met back in October, Lazio secured a 3-2 win over Atalanta after goals from Taty Castellanos and Matias Vecino, with a Charles De Ketelaere own goal opening proceedings at the Stadio Olimpico.
