Football Prediction of the Day Atalanta vs Lazio
The two encounters involving the teams in the last season of the Italian Championship were in the tie. In the first round, in Bergamo, by 3 to 3. In the second, in Rome, by 1 to 1.Inzaghi, however, should wait for the position of the medical department to know of more options for climbing the team. Patric Gabarrón (seven matches in the Italian League version 2018/2019 without a goal), Lucas Leiva (eight games without a goal), Jordan Lukaku (three games without a goal), Adam Marusic (11 matches, no goal) and Sergej Milinkovic (14 matches, one goal); and striker Ciro Immobile (15 games, ten goals).
The increase of chances of success of Lazio in the departure of this Monday goes by the emptying of the medical department. The Roma team has very important players in the ward and has no reserves capable of filling these absences. Thus, the prognosis in the victory of Atalanta ends up being the best option for the confrontation by the sixteenth round of the Italian Championship.
