Atalanta

The momentum remains at the Atalanta camp after securing their 2nd consecutive win. With the possibility of going a notch higher in the league, Atalanta shall not waste the opportunity to bag their 3rd consecutive victory.

 

Maximiliano Moralez’s opener became Atalanta’s winning shot during the Chievo encounter. The clinical finish enabled the club to overcome the host right in their own territory. This is despite the dominance shown by the opposing club. Apparently, Atalanta seemed to have fully adjusted and adapted to Stefano Colantuono’s 4-1-4-1 and there is a high possibility for the club to utilize such formation again when they meet Lazio.

 

Lazio

After a scoreless stalemate against Fiorentina, Lazio is determined to snatch a full-blown victory against Atalanta.

 

Despite taking more shots against Fiorentina, still, Lazio was unable to convert its scoring opportunities. As a result, the match ended in a draw, which has a minimal effect in the ranking. Nevertheless, this is still, better than going home defeated. A point is still, a point and whether the effect is huge or trivial, getting an extra gives a little bit of an edge.

 

Occupying the 7th spot, the club has already won thrice, drew twice and lost twice.

 

Pitted against Atalanta, Lazio has a dose of inspiration to keep them going and overcome the host. Stefan Radu and Abdoulay Konko are already on the verge of recovering from their injuries. Although they cannot join the pitch yet, their supporters will soon see them in action.
