LAZ vs ATN Dream11 : Atalanta strive to make an early inroad in their quest for the league title when they begin gameweek 8 of the league with Lazio.
Where all the discourse has been built around Juventus and Inter Milan in the opening exchanges of Serie A, the one team who have gone about quietly conducting their business in Serie A 2019-20 have been Atlanta. Perhaps the most surprising and rampant side this season, the unit has clearly punched above it weight to achieve more than anyone would have fathomed.
Despite still being early days in Serie A, the third place which Atlanta find themselves occupying is a berth to be extremely proud of. With 5 wins from 7 matches, the side’s 16 points are just three less than first placed Juventus, seeing the outfit make early inroads in the opening days of the marquee league.
Currently unbeaten in their previous 5 fixtures, Atlanta broke off for the international set of encounters with a profound 3-1 display over Lecce, a performance they’ll be looking to emanate come Lazio today. The visiting side will be well aware that this is not an encounter they have take easily with sixth placed Lazio an extremely tricky opposition, a side who are filled with guile, gustiness and diminutiveness.
However, their 2-2 draw with Bologna the previous time around emphasised that things have not been going well for the side in this edition of the league. They have been riddled by inconsistencies, with apart from the sprinklings of sporadic wins nothing really going the side’s way in set of beleaguered and dejecting performances. It’s been a determent to their ambitions of climbing up the ranks, a predicament which Atlanta will be looking to make the most of come today.

LAZ vs ATN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Where Lazio have been a side who have been dismissed with disdain, the outfit’s defensive setup is a strong one. They have conceded just 6 goals today and infront of an attacking side which has used the immense nous of its attacking players to pile on goals, the hosts will once again turn to their defenders to try and pull off the three points for them.
Someone who is going to play an integral role for his side in this rhetoric is their goal-keeper Thomas Strakosha, a shot stopper who has snared his way a solid amount of saves, seeing us opt for the goal-keeper for this prevelant clash.
LAZ vs ATN Dream11 Defenders
We are choosing CB Francesco Acerbi from Lazio for this match. The side’s consummate success in the defensive setup has come down from them deploying a 5 man defence with the two wingbacks adequately providing protection the three CBs. And Acerbi is an instrumental name for them, a player who is ever present defensively as well, seeing his two toned nature as a player bring him into our side.
From Atlanta meanwhile we have gotten in the two defenders in the form of Timothy Castagne and Robin Gosens. Akin to the opposition, they deploy a familiar formation, one which saw Gosens reward his side with a goal in their foregone encounter to make this indomitable duo a must have for today’s clash.
LAZ vs ATN Dream11 Midfielders
With 18 goals in 7 matches, Atlanta have imbedded in place a sublime brand of attacking football, one which has taken birth owing to the slew of players imbued in the side. Ingrained into the unit are some worldclass attacking names, players who know just what it takes to traverse past defenders and cut them open to craft attacking plays with consummate ease.
We begin by getting in last time’s goal scorer, Alejandro Gomez from the side with Josip Illicic and Remo Freuler being his partners for this one while from Lazio we are getting in both their wingbacks. The partnership of Adam Marusic and Senad Lulic makes an advent into our side due to their astute nature in both the dockets of the side, players who’ll bring our way points in both the attacking and defensive setups.
LAZ vs ATN Dream11 Strikers
In the absence of Zapata, the onus grows on Luis Muriel for Atlanta to compensate for the loss of their leading goal scorer. The 6 goals Zapata has scored till now will be sorely missed by his side who’ll be looking towards Luis Muriel to take the accountability of delivering a specialist display in this clash.
Elsewhere from the opposition we are bringing in Joaquin Correa to wrap up our set of picks for this encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Gomez is chosen as our captain for this clash while we are bringing in Muriel as the vice-captain.
