Atalanta hope to make it three consecutive wins against Roma in all competitions. The third-placed league outfit will be travelling to the Stadio Olimpico hoping for good fortune. This is a ground where Atalanta have won three times in the last six visits whilst not suffering a defeat. Furthermore, Roma are in a very bad position, as the club seem to be concentrating their full efforts on the Europa League semifinals.
Total goals over 2.5
Atalanta were involved in a 1-0 win over Juventus in the last match. This is one of the few low scoring games involving Atalanta this season. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men are excellent to watch and they are aiming for a Champions League position courtesy of this attack. A poor Roma team are likely to contribute to the goals. Even without the hosts, this match can end up producing over 2.5 goals.
Duvan Zapata to score anytime
Zapata had a very quiet match against Juventus and his scoring streak goals came to an end. However, he should be back among the goals against Roma, who have been very poor at the back. Since Roma also sit quite deep, it should favour the 30-year-old who has 13 league goals so far this season. The blank against Juventus is the first time Zapata has not scored since the last international break.
Roma vs Atalanta: Team News and Match Preview
There is little doubt that Roma have put all their eggs into the Europa League semifinals against Manchester United. The game is coming up towards the end of April and Roma seem to have switched off in anticipation of this encounter. In the win against Bologna, Roma were hardly deserving of the three points. The heavy loss against Torino would be a fair reflection of their recent performances. Paulo Fonseca will be without Chris Smalling, Stephan El Shaarawy, Leonardo Spinazzola, Marash Kumbulla, and Nicolò Zaniolo due to injuries. Amadou Diawara is suspended for the game.
Atalanta jumped into the third spot after overtaking rivals Juventus last weekend. The club now have set their sights on overtaking AC Milan, who are only two points ahead. It has been a sensational season from Atlanta, who have provided exciting football on a consistent basis. Yet, the team required a gritty victory over Juventus to stay in the hunt for the second spot. After back-to-back third-place finishes, Atalanta are looking set for a record campaign. Hans Hateboer is unavailable for the visitors.
