The Serie A action draws to a close in Bergamo on Match Day 16 as seventh placed Atalanta play host to fifth placed Lazio. With just four points between the sides, there's plenty riding on this one.

The sides couldn't be split last season with this game ending in a 3-3 draw and the teams being locked at one apiece in the reverse fixture in Rome.

Not much to report on the injury front with Atalanta having a fully fit squad from which to select and Adam Marusic being the only confirmed absentee for Lazio.

Atalanta are on a decent run at present with five wins in their last seven. There form at home has been pretty mixed overall though with three wins and three defeats from their seven games to date.

Both sides have scored in six of Atalanta's last seven games in Serie A.

Four consecutive draws in Serie A have seen Lazio slip out of the Champions League positions and they will no doubt be looking to return to wining ways sooner rather than later in order to keep pace with the sides above them. Lazio have lost just twice away from home in the league so far this season, at Juventus and Roma.

Both sides have scored in each of Lazio's past five in Serie A.

This looks a fairly evenly poised encounter. Lazio have the better squad overall, but home advantage for Atalanta may just help to balance things out and we see a score draw in this one.

Prediction: Atalanta 2 - 2 Lazio
