Serie A season 2018-19 preview

Date and time: September 30, 7:45pm

Location: Stadio Olimpico

Lazio and Atalanta were third and fourth in Serie A last season, and they’ll both be looking to launch an assault on the scudetto. It is important for both sides to lay down a marker here, but it isn’t likely to be a cagey affair. Both these teams love attacking, and they aim to outscore their opponents.

The home side here scored 79 goals in the league last year, second only to Atalanta who scored 19 more, taking their total to 98. There will be goals here, it almost feels guaranteed.

Both games last season were jam-packed with goals, with a 3-2 win for Atalanta after a 3-3 draw in the first meeting. We think both teams to score is almost nailed on here, and is certainly worth a look at 4/9 with Bet365.

Who are the favourites here?

You really can take your pick, because both sides will fancy their chances. They have each won their only match of the season.

In four of Lazio’s last six games and three of Atalanta’s last four have ended with over 3.5 goals, and that could be enticing at 13/10 with Bet365.

We think that Lazio are slight favourites here, and you can back them for the win at 6/4 with Bet365.

What other markets are worth a look?

Ciro Immobile is the man we are backing to score anytime at 4/5 with Bet365.
