Atalanta Bergamo vs Lazio Rome / Coppa Italia – Final of the Coppa Italia but not expected one, although both teams fully deserve chance to fight for the title. Atalanta outplayed Juventus, while Lazio eliminated Inter and Milan. Atalanta stands better in the Serie A, where it occupies the fourth place and fight to qualify for the Champions League, which is out of reach for Lazio as it has seven points more. Atalanta won both their league matches this season.

Excellent Atalanta doesn’t give up despite that the season near its end. The team from Bergamo is very close to make a big splash and that is to qualify for the Champions League. They are also very close to win the Coppa Italia and that would be definitely the icing on the cake which would make the season historical for them. No one saw them this far in the Cup and so high in the Serie A table before the season started but they fully deserve to be where they are now.
They are still the most efficient team in the Serie A and that clearly indicates what kind of football they play. They have 11-game unbeaten streak, out of which they won eight matches including four previous one, which keeps them at positions that lead to the Champions League. Two rounds ago they won Lazio away, while in the previous one when they couldn’t count on suspended Masiello, Mancini and Gomez they won Genoa 2-1. All three of them are back in the team now.
Probable lineups Atalanta Bergamo: Gollini – Masiello, Djimsiti, Mancini – Hateboer, de Roon, Freuler, Castagne – Gomez, Ilicic – Zapata
The final is more important for Lazio as more was expected from them in the league where they underperformed and didn’t qualify for the Champions League. Atalanta extinguished their last hop two rounds ago when they won in Rome by 3-1. Lazio did take the first lead, practically scoring from the first attack, but later on they were outplayed and deservedly defeated. But not only that game is responsible for their weak result but they also recently lost at home to last placed Chievo, which they definitely shouldn’t allow to happen.
Lazio eliminated to great teams from the Coppa Italia, Inter and Milan, but they were eliminated from the Europa League in the round of 32 by Sevilla. Last weekend they won Cagliary away by 2-1 easier than the result might indicate. Strakosha wasn’t at the goal, while several players were injured like Milinkovic-Savic. Strakosha should be ready for the final, while the team will probably undergo some changes compared to match with Cagliari.
Probable lineups Lazio Rome: Strakosha – Luis Felipe, Acerbi, Bastos – Romulo, Parolo, Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic – Immobile, F. Caicedo
Atalanta Bergamo vs Lazio Rome PICK
It is very important to tell that he game will take place at Olimpico stadium in Rome, meaning Lazio will play practically at home. However, it did so recently in the league but Atalanta won, so it doesn’t mean that Lazio has a decisive advantage now. Atalanta will play openly so we could easily see a rerun of the goal fest from the championship.
