Roma vs Atalanta
Italy-Seria A
Date: Wednesday, 25 September
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).

AS Roma is unbeaten in the new season of the league with two wins and two draws. The host will be hosting the second runners-up of the last season Seria A. They had their previous home game won against Sassuolo after drawing the opening match at home with Genoa. Roma has managed to score 10 goals from the four encounters in the new edition of the SA league.

Atalanta has won only two games at the start of this new season. They are unbeaten at away games in the league. Interestingly, they have not registered a win in the home matches in this season of the SA league. They have scored nine goals in the league and five of them came from away fixtures. They are just one point behind the hosting contingent.

The clash will be a test for the teams having almost equal strength in the league. It will question whether the host can hold the former second runners up using their home advantage.

Roma vs Atalanta Prediction

Even though the league is termed as a bit of defensive league there is no shortage for the goals. The previous three clashes hosted by Roma saw both teams scoring goals in the end. Moreover, both teams have scored in eight of the last ten overall fixtures. Besides that, the host has scored in all their previous three home fixtures.

Atalanta does hold an upper hand with their undefeated streak against Roma at their home. Anyways Roma has been on an unbeaten form in the league giving them confidence over the rivals. Moreover, the hosting contingent has recorded six of the last nine victories from their meetings with the guest at all venues.

Henceforth, the match is more likely to be won by the home team but in any case, we cannot out rule the visiting side. Hence, it is safe to go for a double chance with both teams to find the back of the net in the game.
