AS Roma vs Atalanta Prediction

In the 7th round of the Italian Serie A at the Olimpico stadium, currently fifth-placed Roma led by the phenomenal Jose Mourinho welcomes the most pleasant surprise of the championship so far, the second-placed Atalanta team.

Roma

Until two rounds ago, these two teams shared first place in the Serie A standings with the same number of points. After that, Roma suffered a disastrous defeat against Udinese with 4:0, and then in the next round, they managed to get all three points with a 1:2 victory in an unpleasant away game at Empoli.

Coach Jose Mourinho’s team in the Europa League started with a 2-1 defeat against Ludogorets, but in the second round, after a narrow victory against Empoli, they routinely defeated the Finnish champion HJK Helsinki with 3-0.

The scorers for the Giallorossi in that match were Paulo Dybala in the 47th minute and Lorenzo Pellegrini in the 49th minute of the match, and Andrea Belotti scored the first goal in the Roma shirt in the 68th minute. Again it turns out that whenever Dybala scores a goal for his team, Roma wins.

The last match between Roma and Atalanta in March was won by the club from Rome with a score of 1-0. Roma has not conceded a goal at home since the beginning of the season in three matches played, two in the domestic championship and one in the Europa League.

Atalanta

On the other hand, Atalanta currently has the best defense in the league, conceding only 3 goals in 6 games. They are currently tied with Napoli and Milan with 14 points, but goal difference puts them in second place in the table.

They have a record of 4 wins and 2 draws, and the last draw they achieved in the last round when they quite unexpectedly played only 1-1 in Bergamo with Cremonese, a team that is among the three at the bottom of the table.

Atalanta may not have such a quality team and a long bench to attack the Scudetto, but years ago they showed that, led by Gasperini, they play modern football and that they should not be underestimated.

H2H

In the previous five matches, Roma and Atalanta have an identical score in their duels, two wins and one draw each.

Expected lineups


Roma (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio – Gianluca Mancini – Chris Smalling – Roger Ibanez – Rick Karsdorp – Bryan Cristante – Nemanja MatiΔ‡ – Leonardo Spinazzola – Paulo Dybala – Lorenzo Pellegrini – Tammy Abraham

Atalanta (3-4-2-1): Juan Musso – Caleb Okoli – Merih Demiral – Rafael Toloi – Hans Hateboer – Marten de Roon – Teun Koopmeiners – Brandon Soppy – Ruslan Malinovsky – Ademola Lookman – Luis Fernando Muriel

Roma vs. Atalanta Prediction

Both teams want to win this match, and with everything they’ve shown so far, we can’t say that both don’t deserve it. Since the beginning of the season, Roma has scored a goal in all matches in Serie A and the Europa League, except for the match against Udinese. On the other hand, Atalanta managed to shake the opponent’s net in each of the previous six meetings.

Out of the 5 duels so far, 4 ended with goals for both sides. We expect it to be the same on Sunday at the Olimpico, so our betting suggestion for this match is for both teams to score a goal.
