Lazio vs Atletico Madrid will be a very interesting clash of styles. Here are our predictions.
Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes
Both teams lost their latest home fixtures ahead of the Champions League, so we expect a lot from them in this game. Lazio seem to be a bit out of shape right now and while they score goals every game, they concede a lot more. Atletico Madrid suffered a shocking defeat after some wild performances in the first few rounds and we actually expect them to be the better team on the pitch here.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
Lazio are struggling right now despite the win over the champions. Atletico Madrid are definitely the better team out of the two, which makes us believe that they will not lose this game. After all, they are the masters of boring, slow football, and they know how not to lose games in the Champions League. They may even win it but we think that the draw is the cleanest option for this fixture.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Atletico Madrid are known for their conservative style and they rarely have high scorelines in the Champions League. Diego Simeone knows how not to lose and how to construct his team to defend well. When we compare the Lazio vs Atletico Madrid line ups, we think that the visitors definitely have the stronger squad out of the two teams.

Lazio had one of their more successful campaigns and deservedly are in the CL. Nevertheless, the new season has seen them lose most games and their defense looks absolutely terrible. They will face a defensive team that is surprisingly good in attack right now.
