Roma vs Atalanta by Rahul

Roma come into this encounter in red hot form failing to taste the word defeat in 6 straight games now and that has been largely led by a strong offensive showing where they have scored 16 goals in those 6 games. Edin Dzeko has been the chief architect, netting 6 goals in those 6 games. He has been well supported by the likes of Salah, El Sharaawy, Nainggolan who have been scoring goals and creating chances for Dzeko and the other players as well. Defensively, Roma has shown some vulnerabilities leaking goals in 9 out of their last 12 games; and the tasks becomes equally harder with De Rossi and Emerson out of this encounter.


Atalanta have slowly improved their form over the recent weeks after patchy period over December-Jan where they lost 4 out of 7 games, that saw them slip away from the Champions League spot. Since 22nd January, they have only lost one game which was a demolishing 7-1 loss to Inter Milan. If you take that aside, they have won 7 and drawn 3 of their other 10 games, showcasing their turn around in form and fortune. Atalanta have since scored 19 goals in that stretch in 10 games which gives them confidence to score against a firing Roma side. Atalanta will rely on the likes of Gomez, Petagna, Kessie and Kurtic to deliver the goals for them in this encounter. Gomez will be suspended unfortunately, so Kessie will be overly relied on to deliver the goals.


I think this will prove to be an entertaining late kick off between these 2 sides, and I am predicting both teams to score and over 2.5 goals like it landed in 4 out of the last 6 meetings between the 2 sides, and in the earlier game this season.
