Atalanta vs Roma Match Preview & Team News
It seemed that this might be Atalanta’s poorest campaign in the previous few seasons after a slow start. However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side found its mojo back, and they tied six straight wins in the Italian top-flight. That run launched them to 3rd position, being six points behind Inter and having one game in hand. Duvan Zapata and the lads returned to recognizable attacking form and scored less than two goals just once on the previous eleven occasions. They managed to beat Juventus and Napoli on the road, and La Dea wants to keep its winning streak going.
Roma has been pretty inconsistent lately, winning three and losing two games in the previous five rounds. The away side sits in 6th place, being eight points behind the fourth-placed Napoli. Jose Mourinho’s team bounced back with a 2:0 win over Spezia, though, where they finally managed to keep the clean sheet. Nicolo Zaniolo and the lads struggle when playing on the road, as they celebrated just three times in eight outings. Nevertheless, Giallorossi have been pretty efficient on the away grounds, scoring almost two games per contest. However, Roma needs to show more discipline if they want to remain undefeated in this match.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Despite losing to Villarreal in the Champions League, Atalanta has been excellent lately. La Dea hasn’t lost in the last seven head-to-head clashes against Roma. The hosts are in a much better momentum, and we expect them to book the seventh victory in a row.
Goals Market Prediction
Atalanta’s matches have been a joy to watch, and ten of their previous 11 games went over a 2.5 margin. We saw at least three goals in five of the last seven encounters between these two sides, and this one shouldn’t be much different.
