Serie A: Lazio face a MUST win clash against Atalanta in race for title

Lazio visit Atalanta in a must win clash in their race for the title.

Lazio last won the Serie A title 20 years ago when Sven-Goran Eriksson lead the team to glory.

Simone Inzaghi’s side look to a dream league triumph as they sit second to Juventus in the table.

Lazio make a return to action on Wednesday night after a three month hiatus enforced by the coronavirus pandemic back in March.

Lazio face a daunting task in keeping the dream with an away trip to Atalanta.

Atalanta sit fourth in the league and have booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Atalanta came from a goal down to see off Sassuolo 4-1 on Sunday and will be buoyed by that victory on Wednesday night.

Juventus secured a convincing 2-0 win over Bologna on Monday night and the pressure will be on Lazio to close the gap on Juventus.

Lazio will be without former Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva who has become an invaluable part of the squad.

The Brazilian midfielder’s capabilities allow the likes of Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to have more freedom moving forward.

Lazio will also be without defender Luiz Felipe as well as midfielders Senad Lulic and Adam Marusic who are all injured.

Lazio will be calling on Ciro Immobile’s goals as they take on Atalanta. The 30-year old Italian forward has been phenomenal this season, scoring 27 goals and registering 7 assists in the league.

Immobile leads the league’s goal scoring charts with 27 goals in 26 league games this season
