In the previous round, the Bergamas visited Lazio in Rome. Before that match, the team lost twice in a row, failing to cope in the Italian Cup to Inter (0:1) and in the national championship to Sassuolo (0:1). So the encounter with Lazio was of particular importance to Atalanta, and it should be said that they played it very well. In 23 minutes, Davide Zappacosta opened the scoring with a great shot inside the top corner, and Rasmus Hojlund scored in the middle of the second half. With a score of 2:0, Atalanta confidently beat a powerful opponent in their field and rehabilitated themselves for their failure in recent matches.
The team met on their field against Roma in the last round and played another quality match. Having opened the scoring thanks to an auto goal from Ibañez in the opening stages, Lecce allowed the Romans to quickly get back into the game thanks to a penalty awarded to Paulo Dibala in the middle of the first half. But the Red-Yellow didn't let the powerful opponents level the score any further, leading the encounter to a draw in their usual defensive manner. As a result, Lecce has taken points from nearly all Serie A sides this season (1:1).
Expert Betting Tips
Lecce is a team that does an excellent job on offense. The Giallorossi play tough and aggressive football and try to prevent chances at their goal rather than hitting others. It is unlikely that Atalanta will be able to score eight goals in the upcoming game as they did in their recent encounter against Salernitana. At the same time, there is not much doubt in the victory of Bergamas - Gian Piero Gasperini's team is in great shape. They took apart a strong Lazio in the previous round. Besides, they obviously would not mind taking revenge from Lecce for the away defeat in the first round of the championship. We will take here, accordingly, the win of Bergamas in not the most productive, as almost all of Lecce's games this season.
