Atalanta to Strike Psychological Blow Ahead of Cup Final

May 2, 2019


Atalanta v Lazio – 5th May – 14:00 BST

Lazio and Atalanta preview the Italian Coppa Italia final in this weekend’s most fascinating Italian Serie A game and one thinks the Goddess are overpriced to avoid an away defeat.

Atalanta has been one of Italian Serie A’s form sides since the turn of the year and the Goddess fully deserve to be in one of the division’s four UEFA Champions League spots with four rounds remaining. Atalanta has won six and drawn three of its last nine Italian Serie A matches, including a 2-1 victory at Napoli and a 0-0 draw at Internazionale. Italian Serie A’s joint top-scoring team with Juventus, Atalanta has won admirers far and wide for its attack-minded football.

Lazio is four points and four rungs below Atalanta on the Italian Serie A ladder and the White and Sky Blues must regret losing 1-2 at home to the league’s worst side, Chievo, two weeks ago. Based on Lazio’s Italian Serie A results versus the division’s best teams, the White and Sky Blues do not deserve to represent Italy in next term’s UEFA Champions League – they are 2-2-8 in their 12 top-flight games against higher ranked rivals. Furthermore, according to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, while Lazio holds a 10-1-8 overall advantage over Atalanta, the White and Sky Blues have fared worse than the Goddess in their respective clashes versus the top four sides.

Atalanta represents excellent betting value. Lazio is set to take to the field on Sunday without as many as five injured players, including Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and Senad Lulic is definitely out through suspension. Josip Ilicic is rated doubtful for Atalanta but he will undergo a fitness test.

December’s reverse Italian Serie A fixture resulted in a 1-0 home win for Atalanta in which the Goddess netted the only goal of the match before 60 seconds had elapsed. Atalanta has not lost any of its last three games against Lazio and one is backing the Goddess to extend their current streak.

Punting on the 35th round of Italian Serie A matches gets decidedly trickier after wagering on Atalanta to deny Lazio at 1.70  with Bet365.

Sassuolo v Frosinone – 5th May – 14:00 BST

TOP TIP! – Sassuolo to beat Frosinone @ 1.70

One’s second Italian Serie A pick is Sassuolo to earn three points from its Sunday game versus Frosinone at 1.70  with Black Type. Sassuolo has nothing for which to play other than pride but, according to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, the Black and Greens boast an 11-4-4 lead over Frosinone, including progressive counts of 5-1-0, 9-3-1 and 10-3-3. Frosinone is 10 points adrift of 17th-ranked Udinese with 12 points up for grabs and the Little Zebras are the one and only team the Canaries can overtake. Frosinone’s Italian Serie A fate is almost sealed and the Canaries will have to throw caution to the wind against a Sassuolo side that is likely to enjoy exploiting the spaces their guests leave. Sassuolo posted a 2-0 Italian Serie A win over Frosinone in December’s reverse fixture so, if the Black and Greens are switched on, they should improve their recent league run to three wins and three draws since losing back-to-back matches in March.


Juventus v Torino – 3rd May – 19:30 BST

TOP TIP! – Juventus to beat Torino @ 1.73  with Betway

Italian Serie A champion Juventus has won eight of its last nine games versus Torino across all competitions and, with a collateral form edge of 12-3-4 and city pride on the line, the Old Lady rounds out one’s divisional punting portfolio.
