11th day of Serie A with a tempting poster on the program. Atalanta receives Romans from Lazio in Bergamo. Two teams that will be keen to win, they so close to the top of the Italian championship.
Atalanta side, the club is 5th in the championship, three points from the podium but ten points already from the lead occupied by the Neapolitans. Bergamo have won 50% of their matches since the start of the season, in addition to conceding three draws and losing twice. Their last match was a great success against Sampdoria de Genoa this week, won 3-1. Ilicic and Zapata are in good shape right now, often scorers and leaders of the team’s prolific attack. On the other hand, the training takes in the image of the comeback suffered against Manchester United in the Champions League last week. Champions League precisely, from the middle of next week, Ronaldo’s comeback against teammates awaits Atalanta, and this weekend’s game must be strategic as soon as the composition is announced.
For Lazio, it is not necessary to go very far to state the classification of this team. 6th with only one point less than their weekend opponents, the stakes are high. Ciro Immobile is still the top scorer in the championship but as for Atalanta, the goals scored are not always improved by an iron defense. The win against Fiorentina this week catches up their heavy defeat, 4-1, conceded last weekend against Hellas Verona. Regularity must quickly be found in this team to hope do not stagnate outside the top 5 for the rest of the year. Marseille will wait for Lazio this Thursday, the Marseille club being already certainly in Roman heads from this Saturday.
Editors’ prognosis: 2-2
True to themselves, these two teams could well be effective in front without knowing how to preserve their advantage on the scoreboard. Prolifics, Bergamo and Rome could each score two goals and so to leave on a pleasant draw for the public, but less for the supporters on an accounting level.
Atalanta : Musso; Demiral, Lovato, Toloi; Zappacosta, De Roon, Freuler, Maehle; Pasalic, Ilicic; Zapata
Lazio : Reina; Lazzari, Felipe, Acerbi, Hysaj; Lucas, Alberto, Milinkovic-Savic; Anderson, Pedro, Motionless
