Atalanta vs AS Roma Team News

After sharing the spoils with lowly Genoa (2-2), the free-flowing Bergamese came from behind to beat Fiorentina 2-1 to end their 27-year wait for a Serie A victory at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have won four of their last seven league matches and scored 23 goals during that span. With 42 points on the board, Atalanta are currently occupying fourth spot on the table, three points clear of their next opponent.

La Dea have posted five wins, two defeats and four losses as hosts at the Gewiss Stadium and Ennio Tardini, averaging stupendous 2.86 goals scored per bout whilst shipping 1.64 in return. Atalanta have won three of their last five home games.

The Giallorossi’s crisis deepens as they fell to their second straight league defeat at the hands of Sinisa Mihajlovic’s Bologna. Paulo Fonseca’s boys have earned just four points since the mid-season break and conceded 13 goals in the process.

After a positive first part of the season, Roma’s form has collapsed recently. Fonseca’s men have won just two of their last eight matches, and during this run have allowed an inconsistent Atalanta to leapfrog them in that vital fourth spot.

Roma have lost three defeats in their last four matches, with the last two being a 4-2 against Sassuolo and a 2-3 at home against Bologna.
They will be hoping to recapture their old form ahead of the huge clash against fellow Champions League hopefuls, Atalanta. The Roman side are sitting at fifth place, five points ahead of Hellas Verona.

Roma have registered six wins, three draws and two defeats on their travels, netting 1.82 goals per match and conceding a goal per tie. They have racked up ten points from their last five road fixtures (3W, 1D, 1L).

Atalanta vs AS Roma Predictions

Given both sides are sitting adjacent to each other on the Serie A standings, it is expected to be a difficult game at the Gewiss Stadium. A battle of wits against teams in the running for a top-four finish, expect goals down both ends here.

Given AS Roma have been mediocre in recent weeks and are enduring a very rough patch, the home side have to be considered slight favorites for the win here. However, they will have their work cut-out in their bid to see off this resilient I Giallorossi side.
