Atalanta’s sole Coppa Italia success came way back in 1963, but they look well-equipped to double that tally when taking on Lazio in this year’s final.
The Biancocelesti will technically have home advantage at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, but Gian Piero Gasperini’s side won 3-1 here in Serie A earlier this month.
That followed a 1-0 success at Atleti Azzurri d’Italia in mid-December, so 91/100 for the visitors to lift the trophy is a form pick for our opening Atalanta vs Lazio prediction.
A Look At Atalanta’s Betting Odds
Atalanta signalled their intent to go all out for glory in this competition when crushing holders Juventus 3-0 in the quarter-finals, when Timothy Castagne opened the scoring and then Duvan Zapata bagged a brace.
Fiorentina proved tough opponents in the two-legged semis, but Gasperini’s men followed up a 3-3 away draw by prevailing 2-1 in front of their own fans.
La Dea have also been in excellent form in Serie A, with Saturday’s 2-1 triumph over Genoa making it four straight league wins, putting them seven points ahead of Lazio.
Colombia striker Zapata, on a two-season loan deal from Sampdoria, has netted 22 times in Italy’s top flight, including goals in both games against the Biancocelesti.
Looking at the Atalanta vs Lazio odds, the 6ft 2in forward appeals at 19/4 to break the deadlock in Wednesday night’s decider.
A Look At Lazio’s Betting Odds
Lazio have lifted this trophy six times before, most recently in 2013, and also reached the final in 2015 and 2017, when losing out to Juventus, so they do have plenty of pedigree.
Simone Inzaghi’s side held their nerve to prevail on penalties at Inter in the quarter-finals and then edged out AC Milan 1-0 on aggregate, thanks to Joaquin Correa’s away strike in the second leg.
However, they have been far from convincing in Serie A of late, losing half of their last eight league fixtures.
That shaky sequence includes defeats to Chievo and Atalanta at Olimpico, while they only drew 2-2 with Sassuolo on home turf due to a stoppage-time leveller by Senad Lulic.
Let’s finish off our Atalanta vs Lazio betting tips by taking 9/1 for La Dea to oblige 2-1 in normal time.
ATALANTA 2-1 Genoa – Musa Barrow, Timothy Castagne
Cagliari 1-2 LAZIO – Luis Alberto, Joaquin Correa
Head-to-head: Lazio 1-3 Atalanta, Atalanta 1-0 Lazio, Lazio 1-1 Atalanta, Atalanta 3-3 Lazio, Lazio 2-1 Atalanta, Atalanta 3-4 Lazio
