LAZIO VS ATALANTA (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 05.05.2019

In this ‘rehearsal’ for the Coppa Italia final, Lazio will be eager to maintain their usual dominance in Serie A (SA) home matches, having won after leading at half-time in nearly half (eight) of their 17 SA outings as hosts, which is a league high.
Getting the first goal is usually important for Simone Inzaghi’s men, as tellingly they’ve lost just two home games after scoring the opener (W9, D1, L2), with the ‘Eagles’ also opening the scoring in each of their home league wins this season.
Atalanta arrive in the capital having already recorded their best away goal-scoring tally in a single SA campaign. In turn, no other SA side has participated in more games producing over 3.5 total match goals than Atalanta this term, with 16 of their 34 SA games seeing that outcome.
Impressively, Atalanta’s last two SA away wins have seen them recover after conceding first in the opening half-hour. As a potential psychological bonus, both of those wins from behind also saw Atalanta score the final match goal between the 76th-90th minute (plus stoppage time).
Players to watch: Lazio’s Felipe Caicedo has netted four goals in his last three SA outings (W2, L1). Both wins saw him open the scoring inside the first half-hour.
Only one SA player has scored more goals than Duván Zapata (21 goals, seven assists). Two-thirds of his goals for Atalanta have arrived away from home.
Stat attack: Lazio have conceded 68.42% of their SA home goals in the second half.
Atalanta have scored 64.86% of their SA away goals after the half-time whistle.
Lazio are unbeaten in the last four SA H2Hs here (W3, D1), with all of the last six SA H2Hs in Rome seeing a level half-time score.
