[Italian Serie A] AS Roma VS Atalanta 7.1 [Copy Link]

AS Roma: engine stalled despite solid defense ( Recent Form: D W L L D )
The first few months of the season have shown that AS Roma may be able to make a throw at the top places in the Serie A, but it will now have to be settled quickly with the disappointing form crisis. The formation of Eusebio Di Francesco has not succeeded in showing the potential for the last few weeks and that led to a lot of loss. At the end of December, AS Roma was sealed out of the Coppa Italia by Torino and the results are not much better in the competition. Of the last six games in the Serie A, the Romans only won two and that is a big disappointment, especially given the fact that points were lost against relatively weak clubs like Sassuolo, Chievo Verona and Genoa. As a result, the gap with leader Napoli has grown to nine points. AS Roma has played a game less, but it will be extremely difficult to close this gap. Last week, it went wrong for AS Roma in the home game against Sassuolo. The duel with the current number fourteen of the ranking seemed to be ideal for the hosts to refuel some confidence beforehand, but nothing turned out to be less true. AS Roma came on a 1-0 lead for tea by a goal from Lorenzo Pellegrini, but after halting AS Roma failed to win the three points. Simone Missiroli put the 1-1 final score with just thirteen minutes to play on the board. What is striking about the achievements of AS Roma is that the defense is in an impressive form, but that this is often not enough to achieve the necessary results. The defense of AS Roma only swallowed twelve goals in eighteen league matches and with that the Romans do better than the entire top three. This shows that there is still room for improvement in the attack. AS Roma produced by far the least goals from all clubs in the top five. The fans of the Romans will therefore hope for some fads from Edin Dzeko. The seasoned striker, last season good for 29 goals, is less on this year. For the time being, his counter is eight goals in eighteen matches.

Atalanta Bergamo: week of extremes ( Recent Form: D W W L W )
As it was known, Atalanta Bergamo was the revelation of the Serie A last season and that meant that the expectations were high at the start of the new year. The team of trainer Gian Piero Gasperini shows again this season that the qualities are good within the selection, but it is striking that the performance in the Serie A is somewhat behind the results in the cup tournaments. So Atalanta Bergamo survived the group in the Europa League with playful ease and last week there was another ticket for the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia won by defeating Napoli. The current ninth place in Serie A is a bit disappointing, but it should be noted that the gap with the sixth place is only three points. Atalanta Bergamo started the new year well as said. Just before the turn of the year, Gasperini's team lost quite surprisingly to the home crowd of Cagliari 1-2, but last Tuesday Atalanta Bergamo recovered by winning in Naples, again a surprising result. Timothy Castagne and Alejandro Gomez had taken care of the 0-2 score on the board and therefore the visitors could afford to take a late goal from Dries Mertens. This result has undoubtedly boosted self-confidence, but the question now is whether this team can continue this line in the difficult game with AS Roma. In any case, the physical condition of the selection will not lie down. Behind the name of José Palomino is still a question mark, but everyone else is fit. Furthermore, the recent away games will also provide a positive mindset. Atalanta Bergamo won four of the last five, and that other game ended in a draw against Torino. This series also contained impressive victories over Everton (1-5), AC Milan and Napoli.

After all, AS Roma has the home advantage and solid defense, while Atalanta Bergamo has performed well in the away games in recent weeks. I expect these two teams to be well matched and that the details can sometimes become decisive. I therefore play Under 2.75 goals.

AS Roma  VS  Atalanta

Pick: Under 2.75 @ 1.94.

ITA D1    00:00    FT     AS Roma    1 - 2    Atalanta
