Atalanta BC have become not only the feel-good story of the Italian league, but one of the great footballing stories of the year in all of Europe. The team has surged forward from a seventh-place finish last season to establishing a hold on fourth place — and UEFA Champions League qualification — with only two games remaining on the Serie A schedule. They could secure that finish with wins in their final two games, but first, La Dea can cap off their dream season with their first Coppa Italia win since 1963, per Covers.com.
But, to do so, they will need to travel to Rome and overcome the home-pitch advantage held by their opponents — six-time Cup winners SS Lazio — in the championship final match that will live stream on Wednesday.

In the United Kingdom, that kickoff time will be 7:45 p.m. British Summer Time. Fans in the United States can log in to the live stream at 2:45 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, or 11:45 a.m. Pacific.

Atalanta’s unexpected rise has been compared to the “fairytale” run of Dutch club Ajax in the Champions League this season. And as Goal.com has noted, the two clubs have something else in common. While Ajax stunned Italian champions Juventus by eliminating the Cristiano Ronaldo-led giants from the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage, Atalanta had the same accomplishment in the Coppa Italia — blowing away Juve, who had won the Cup four years running, by a score of 3-0 in the quarterfinal.
Atalanta even have their own answer to Ronaldo. Colombian striker Duvan Zapata has scored 22 league goals, per BBC stats, one more than the five-time Ballon D’or winner. Zapata’s rate of one goal every 124 minutes is equal to Ronaldo’s, as well.
