5th March 2022 – 18:00, Stadio Olimpico, Rome
Roma and Atalanta will face each other in Saturday’s most interesting match of the Serie A 28th round. The home side still hopes to snatch the top-four finish at the end of the campaign, while the visitors also want to secure the Champions League qualification.
Roma Preview & Team News
Roma hopes to win again after their last result, the 1:0 Serie A success against Spezia. That win broke their three-game draw streak and launched them to 6th place. Giallorossi are now six points behind the fourth-placed Juventus but face a challenging opponent. Over their last six games, José Mourinho’s Roma has hit the target a combined total of 9 times, giving them an average number of goals per match of 1.5. Regarding the selection issues, Felix Afena-Gyan (Bruised Hip), Sérgio Oliveira (Heel pain), and Leonardo Spinazzola (Achilles tendon rupture) will not be taking part for Roma boss José Mourinho.
Atalanta Preview & Team News
Atalanta will go into this match following on from a 4:0 Serie A win over Sampdoria in their previous match. They needed a confident performance to break the run of five games without winning. La Dea is currently fifth, being three points behind Juventus and having a game in hand. Throughout their 6 previous matches, Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta has slotted home 12 times – giving them a goals per game average of 2. The visitors need to pick up where they left off to stay in the top-four race. Atalanta boss Gian Gasperini has not got a full squad to pick from since Josip Ilicic (Depression) and Bryan Cabezas (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not ready for selection. Rafael Tolói will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
