Atalanta vs Roma
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 20 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo.
Atalanta held Juventus to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday and see their tough schedule continue as they host Roma for their 13 clash, hoping to build on their unbeaten streak and close the six-point gap to the Serie A top 4. They lost on their consistency but have still proven themselves a tough side to beat as Gasperini looks to rediscover their form from early in the campaign.
La Dea only ended a streak of six home games without a win as they beat Fiorentina (3-0) last week and felt in a better mood up front. They will want to show off now as well and we do expect an exciting occasion at Gewiss Stadium.
Roma have a great streak of their own, though, and will be looking for all-important points too. They beat Bologna (1-5) and Torino (3-1) in their last two outings, with goals coming from all directions.
The Giallorossi haven’t felt confident at the back and this was especially obvious on the road but they still managed to outgun the rivals – which will make it very interesting to see what they can do in Bergamo.
Atalanta vs Roma Head-to-head
Roma last beat Atalanta back in 2017, when they snatched a 0-1 win at this ground.
Atalanta bagged six points in two clashes the last term, with a five-match unbeaten streak connected in head-to-head clashes.
We’ve seen three or more goals on four of those five occasions since January 2018.
Atalanta vs Roma Prediction
We now expect an exciting occasion once again but we’ll back Atalanta to build on such records against Roma. We will stick our necks out for La Dea to bag all three points and go for a Home win at 2.25, which looks like a solid approach despite a strong challenge in the making.
Indeed, Giallorossi will be no sitting ducks and it feels Atalanta will have to outgun them if they’re to make it happen. Both sides’ records point in the same direction and we only hope for more of the same, as we go for a YES on Both teams to score and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1.66. We have seen many in the know rate it a banker bet, especially for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner on Sunday.
