It’s one of the biggest games across Europe this season as Atalanta welcome Lazio to Bergamo with the home side aiming to stay unbeaten in Serie A just as the Rome outfit head on the road with hopes of further implementing themselves in the title race.
It’s been an extraordinary season in Serie A so far, and this is summarised with the form of Lazio and Atalanta out of nowhere. A lot of attention was falling on the shoulders of Roma and the Milan sides, but Lazio are currently fifth in the table and just two points behind Milan and one of their city rivals, Roma. What’s more, they have let in just five goals all season long in what is the best defensive record in Serie A.
In fact, only Barcelona with four let in over in La Liga can boast of a better defensive record across Europe’s top five leagues this season. The club have also netted 21 times, and it does look as if Maurizio Sarri’s men are going to be right in there in what is shaping up to be arguably the best title race we’ve seen across Europe in some time.
Atalanta, on the other hand, have not lost a game yet and with no European football for them this season, they are potentially in the best place to win this title. The club have managed to beat Roma and drawn with Milan already this season, and they returned to the win column after their 2-2 draw with Udinese in a 2-1 victory against Sassuolo
