Roma vs Atalanta
Italy Serie A
Date: Thursday, 22 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Roma and Atalanta will enter their mid-week’s tie in a completely opposite mood. La Lupa suffered yet another disappointing defeat at the weekend when they fell 3-1 away at relegation-threatened Torino, while La Dea picked up their fifth successive Serie A victory by seeing off the defending champions Juventus 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Atalanta have thus climbed up to the third position in the league standings. They now have the pole position in the battle for the top-four finish and a place in UEFA Champions League next season.
This can’t be said for their Thursday counterparts who have been struggling badly for consistency throughout the entire season.
Roma have particularly done poorly against the other top-six rivals as they are yet to beat any of them in this term (Juventus, Inter, Milan, Lazio, Atalanta, Napoli).
Roma vs Atalanta Head-to-head
- Roma still have a positive record against La Dea, but it’s Atalanta who have been the dominant force in this match-up recently.
- La Dea won each of the last three clashes against the Romans, netting at least two goals in each of these victories in the process.
- Atalanta scored two or more goals in all of the last six meetings with La Lupa.
Roma vs Atalanta Prediction
Roma are now eight points below the 4th-placed Juventus and their only route to the elite continental competition would be winning UEFA Europa League.
Paulo Fonseca’s men went past Ajax in the quarterfinal and will play Manchester United in the semis there.
Looking at Roma’s results against big six teams in Italy this season and their recent head to head record against Atalanta, we can hardly look past the away win pick here.
La Dea are one of the most in-form teams in the division at the moment. They won nine of the last ten Serie A matches. We will back them to maintain such a stellar spell of form and clinch another three-pointer at the odds of 1.90 here.
The second bet will be Atalanta to score two or more goals at Stadio Olimpico at the 1.66 odds.
