AS Roma and Atalanta will face each other in Serie A this week. The match at Stadio Olimpico in Roma is slated to kick off at 5:30pm UK time on Thursday and promises to be an exciting game of football.

AS Roma

AS Roma are seventh in the Serie A table at the moment with 54 points from 31 matches. Paulo Fonseca’s side are as many as eight points behind fourth-placed Juventus and are unlikely to finish in the Champions League places this season.

Roma will head into the match against Atalanta on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Torino away from home in Turin in Serie A. It followed a 3-2 aggregate victory over Ajax in the quarter-finals of the Europa League and saw them progress to the semi-finals. The Europa League is now  Roma’s main route to the Champions League.

Team News:

Lorenzo Pellegrini is back from suspension, but Amadou Diawara is banned for this game. Pedro is doubtful with a thigh injury. Stephan El Shaarawy also has a thigh problem.

Atalanta

Atalanta have been doing quite well in recent years and have now made themselves regulars in the top four of Serie A. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side finished third in the league table last season and could end up in the same position this campaign as well.

La Dea are third in the Series A table at the moment with 64 points from 31 matches, two points behind second-placed AC Milan. Inter Milan appear set to win the Scudetto this season, but Atalanta could finish second. They will head into the match against Roma on the back of a 1-0 win against Juventus at home in the league.

Team News:

Cristian Romero is available for Atalanta. Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata will lead the line.

Key Factors to Consider

  • AS Roma have scored 55 goals in 31 Serie A matches this season.
  • Atalanta have scored 72 goals in 31 Serie A matches this season.
  • AS Roma have conceded 47 goals in 31 Serie A games this campaign.
  • Atalanta have conceded 38 goals in 31 Serie A games this campaign.
  • Atalanta beat AS Roma 4-1 in December 2020.

Conclusion

Atalanta will fancy their chances of winning against Roma and will be determined to cement their place in the top four. While the home side will give them a run for their money, it is very likely that the game will end in a win for the visitors.

Prediction: Atalanta to win 3-2
