Roma vs Atalanta: Don’t get fooled by the 12 points differential between AS Roma and Atalanta on the Serie A’s league table
These two teams promise to provide a very open and close match, on an Italian league that, due to the level of its rosters and the huge quality of a wide number of teams, promises to be at the top of the European football in terms of interest until the end of the season.
AS Roma, however, is on a time of trouble.
After the end of the Champions’ League group stage, the Roman side only got one win, against Cagliari.
Draws with Chievo and Sassuolo and losses against Torino, in Coppa Italia, and Juventus, have left Eusébio Di Francesco’s team fighting against their own demons.
The first place in the Serie A is now too distant, but with the increase in the number of Champions’ League spots, they will still be fighting for them.
Atalanta is a bit freer in terms of schedule obligations. But this is a good period for the team from Bergamo, who also advanced in the European competitions.
On the same time period, Atalanta has won 4 matches, two in the Serie A and two in the Coppa Italia, facing opponents like AC Milan and Napoli.
A home draw with Lazio and a loss against Cagliari complete the streak of matches that left this side with the same points as 7th place.
Roma vs Atalanta – Betting Tip and Prediction:
If Roma is looking for a positive result to leave this period behind, Atalanta has been showing assertiveness on the higher demand matches, where their players seem to reveal an ability of overcoming their opponents in the big matches.
Those are signs that we could be upon an interesting match of football, between two balanced teams in attacking terms, but with the home side showing stronger organization when they don’t have the ball.
