Roma Roma miaaaa…

A win could see Atalanta in even a better position
After the disappointment of being knocked out of the Champions League last week, Atalanta bounced back quickly. To point out, the Nerazzurri went to Verona in a very tough match last time out. Gasperini’s team came back with a great win and with that, they toppled Napoli from the third position. Furthermore, Atalanta are now just three points away from leaders Inter.
However, Gasperini couldn’t fix his team’s main problem which is exploiting their defense when playing to win. And that’s what happened with La Dea in their match against Villarreal in the CL. So coming into this match, Gasperini will have to be careful of committing themselves too much in attack. Nevertheless, Atalanta’s numbers in the Serie A are very impressive and a win here might even improve their position further.
Mourinho looking to prove himself against another master tactician
Roma’s trend of losing and winning every two other games in the last six rounds continued in the last round. Notably, the Gialorossi registered a win after two back-to-back defeats in the previous two rounds. Hence a win here will see Jose Mourinho’s side enter the top five. To do that, however, Roma have to overcome a three-match winless streak in Bergamo.
To Clarify, the Gialorossi lost two and drew one in their last three visits to the Gewiss Stadium. Playing against a very organized defense has been Mourinho’s team’s weakness, however. That was visible in the matches where Roma lost to Bologna and Inter in which they couldn’t find the back of the net. Now, Mourinho is in for a real test against one of the best teams in Italy. Can he outsmart the great tactician in Italian football Gasperini?
Atalanta vs AS Roma Prediction
As we covered in the preview, Roma have not beaten Atalanta in Bergamo in three visits. Moreover, Atalanta have not lost to Roma in the last six h2h meetings. For that, La Dea are the bookies’ favorites to win this match with odds of 1.80.
In addition, it is expected to be a high-scoring game with over 2.5 goals gaining odds of 1.57 as opposed to 2.30 for under 2.5. As we check Atalanta’s last five matches at home, we see over 2.5 goals scored in all of them. On the other side Roma’s four out of the last six games had the same number of goals.
To summarize, we think both teams have ambitions of finishing at least top four this season. For that reason, they are playing to win all of their games. Although both coaches rely on strong defense first and then attack, we think we will see enough goals in this one to bet on under 4.5 goals in a combo bet.
