Atalanta and AS Roma will lock horns with each other in Serie A this coming weekend. The match between La Dea and I Giallorossi will be held at the Gewiss Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 7:45 pm UK time on Sunday.

Atalanta

Atalanta have established themselves as a major club in Serie A and always tend to at least challenge for the UEFA Champions League places. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side finished fifth in the league table last season and there is a very good chance that they could end up fourth.

Gli Orobici are fifth in the Serie A table at the moment with 60 points from 34 matches, four points behind Bologna, who are fourth and have played 35 games. They have won their last three league games and are on a roll.

Atalanta will take on Marseille at home in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final tie. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side won 2-1 against Salernitana away from home in Serie A this past weekend.

Team News:

Atalanta are likely to line up in a 3-4-2-1 formation against AS Roma. Marco Carnesecchi will lead the line for the visiting team and will have Marten de Roon, Isak Hien and Giorgio Scalvini in front of him in defence. Hans Hateboer, Mario Pasalic, Ederson and Davide Zappacosta will be the four midfielders. Aleksei Miranchuk and Ademola Lookman will be the two playmakers. Gianluca Scamacca will lead the line for the home team.

AS Roma

AS Roma were really struggling under Jose Mourinho, but Daniele De Rossi has transformed the team. When Mourinho parted company with the Italian giants, it looked like they would struggle to finish mid-table, but now they could get into the UEFA Champions League.

I Giallorossi are doing well at the moment and could still end up in the top four of the Serie A table this season. Roma are now sixth in the standings with 60 points from 35 matches, level on points with Atalanta, who are fifth and have played 35 games. Bologna are fourth with 64 points from 35 matches.

AS Roma will take on Bayer Leverkusen away from home in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday before facing Atalanta in Serie A this coming weekend. Daniele De Rossi’s side played out a 1-1 draw with Juventus at home in the league this past weekend.

Team News:

AS Roma are likely to line up in a 4-3-2-1 formation against Atalanta. Mile Svilar will lead the line for the visiting team and will have Rasmus Kristensen, Diego Llorente, Evan Ndicka and Angelino in front of him in defence. Lorenzo Pellegrini, Leandro Paredes and Bryan Cristante will be the three midfielders. Tommaso Baldanzi and Paulo Dybala are likely to be the two playmakers. Romelu Lukaku will lead the line for the visiting team.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Atalanta have won 4 of their last 6 Serie A matches.
  • Atalanta have lost 1 of their last 6 Serie A matches.
  • Atalanta have scored 63 goals in 34 Serie A matches this season.
  • AS Roma have scored 62 goals in 35 Serie A games this campaign.
  • Paulo Dybala has scored 13 goals and given 9 assists in 26 Serie A matches for AS Roma this season.

Conclusion

Both Atalanta and AS Roma are doing well at the moment, and this particular Serie A game promises to be hugely exciting and entertaining. It is very likely that there will be goals in this match, and the match could end in a scored draw.
