Atalanta come into this final on the back of five wins in a row and they’ll be hoping to make that six in Rome tonight and lift the Coppa Italia trophy for only the second time in their history. They are having a fantastic season and sit in fourth place in the Serie A table, on the brink of a Champions League spot for next season, but silverware would be a fantastic achievement for them also.
La Dea have already dumped out Juventus with a stunning 3-0 win in the quarter finals to ensure the Old Lady wouldn’t be lifting the trophy for a fifth consecutive season, and since then they have lost just two of their last 17 matches.
A recent 3-1 win over tonight’s Coppa Italia finalists Lazio ended their hopes of finishing in the top four a couple of weeks ago. Lazio still sit in eighth place but are four points adrift of Roma in sixth, so a European spot looks unlikely through the league. Simone Inzaghi’s job is under threat as Lazio manager and there are reports that he will be fired at the end of the season – but a Coppa Italia triumph could preserve his job. His side have scraped through the latter rounds of the competition, beating AC Milan 1-0 over two legs in the semi-final and needing penalties to beat Inter Milan in the quarters.
Atalanta’s performances have been much more impressive throughout the season and cam through a high scoring semi-final with Fiorentina, eventually winning 5-4 on aggregate after a 2-1 win in the second leg at their home stadium, Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. Following this match, manager Gian Piero Gasperini takes his side to Juventus for a must win match if they are to remain in the top four – so it is a huge few days for Atalanta as they look to complete one of their most successful seasons for a long time.
Lazio have a slight advantage here in that the match is at their own ground, despite it being a neutral venue. However. Atalanta won there a couple of weeks ago and for our predictions on this final, we’re expecting the same outcome. Atalanta are in a rich vein of form coming into this match and we’re betting on that to continue here, with a win in 90 minutes. They’ve only lost once game away at the top 10 in Serie A this season, a very impressive record against some of Europe’s biggest teams, and their ability to score goals at will could prove the deciding factor in Rome tonight.
Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between these teams, so if you were looking for a selection on a BTTS tip won last week at 7/1, this game would certainly be one to add onto your coupon.
The last time these two teams met, Lazio took the lead thorough an early Parolo goal before Atalanta’s main striking threat Duvan Zapata got the visitors level. They went on to win 3-1 and that goal added to his tally of 22 Serie A goals this season. He’s also got three in the Coppa Italia and he’d be our selection for an anytime goalscorer tip on this Atalanta vs Lazio match tonight. You’ll get 6/5 for him to score anytime at bet365.
