Atalanta vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 January 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
Atalanta host Roma in one of the most exciting games of the Matchday No 21 in Serie A on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. Both teams are enjoying a splendid attacking form coming into the clash whose outcome may have a massive impact on team’s success at the end of the season.
Roma climbed up to 5th in the league ladder thanks to a run of four straight wins in all competitions. They are just one point below 4th-placed Milan with realistic chances of securing the top-four finish at the end of the season with such form. However, a potential defeat here would complicate things for them given Atalanta are only two points away in 7th. The hosts bagged an impressive 11-goal tally in last two league affairs against Sassuolo and Frosinone. They could maintain such an amazing form past Roma whose defensive line allowed two goals in a five-goal thriller against Torino last weekend at Olimpico.
Atalanta vs Roma: Head-to-head
The first H2H encounter between these two likes in this term of Serie A offered a six-goal thriller which ended in a 3-3 draw in the capital.
Roma lead the head to head tie by 11 wins coming into their 41st meeting with La Dea.
Both teams scored in five of past six head to head contests.
Atalanta vs Roma: Prediction
Duvan Zapata enjoyed one of best performances of his career last Saturday when he bagged as many as four goals himself in the 0-5 thumping of Frosinone on the road. The Colombian forward is thus the joint top-scorer in the entire league with 14 goals to his name so far in the season. He will be the main option in the final third here against Roma and you can back him to score anytime at the 2.00 odds.
The visitors are, however, enjoying a tremendous attacking shape of their own. They notched 12 goals in a four-game winning streak in all competitions. Both Teams To Score is a banker bet at the odds of 1.50.
