Atalanta 6/5 to beat Lazio in Monday’s Serie A matchup
Competition: Serie A
Market: Atalanta win
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Desperately looking to end what has been a very worrying run of form, Lazio will travel to Atalanta on Monday night.
Starting with the hosts, while it might have been a worrying start for Atalanta, the Blues have begun to show some signs of life. In their opening 11 games this season, they have won six, drawn three and lost six, scoring 29 and conceding 20 in return. Entering Christmas, no team in Serie A holds a better-attacking record. Although they might sit 11th in the table, a win on Monday would see Atalanta climb as high as sixth. As for their recent form, the hosts have now won six of their last eight matches across all competitions. More impressive, they have also now scored 13 goals in their last five outings.
As for the visitors, while Lazio may have booked their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, they are enduring a worrying run of form of late. In their opening 15 Serie A games this season, they have scored seven, drawn four and lost four, scoring 22 and conceding 18 in return. With a points tally of 25, the visitors sit fifth in the table and just one point adrift of the Champions League positions. However, Lazio have now failed to win any of their last six matches across all competitions and have not recorded a Serie A clean sheet since the end of October.
