Football prediction analysis shows that this will be a battle of the strikers. The Italian Ciro Immobile is Lazio’s talisman and leader up front, chipping in with decisive goals. Diego Simeone trusts Alvaro Morata to spearhead Atletico’s attack, and he’ll be central in this clash.
- Alvaro Morata: With the way Atletico play, football predictions indicate that the Spaniard will see little of the ball and will play with his back to goal for most of the match. However, the striker has grabbed 8 goals in 14 appearances in La Liga and another 5 in 5 in the Champions League.
- Ciro Immobile: The Italian striker is the foil to Maurizio Sarri’s possession-heavy and front-foot football philosophy. Expert soccer predictions indicate that Immobile will be influential in the match. Immobile scored 4 goals in 14 Serie A appearances and three in five Champions League outings.
Given what is at stake in this match, both teams will look to create chances, making it a shootout between the two strikers on who has the last laugh.
Football bet predictions show that this match threatens to be a shootout between a robust and pragmatic Atletico Madrid side of Diego Simeone against an attacking-minded Lazio under Maurizio Sarri.
