Atalanta hosts Roma
Atalanta hosts Roma at the Gewiss Stadium in a game from the 24th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s see what we can tell you about for this fixture, which is going to be played on Saturday in Bergamo.
Atalanta are so far in a pretty good position to chase another Champions League qualification, because Gian Piero Gasperini’s team is 4th in the league with 42 points. Right now La Dea’s advantage in front of the 5th Roma is 3 points, so for them this is a pretty good opportunity to increase this lead and take a better position towards the big goal.
Atalanta will try to follow on their 2-1 win against Fiorentina at the Artemio Franchi from the last week. At halftime La Viola had an advantage in the result, but after the break Atalanta turned the game around with goals from Daniel Zapata and Ruslan Malinovskiy. This was Atalanta’s 12th win for the season.
How we said, right now Roma are three points behind Atalanta in the league, so for them this is a chance to catch up with La Dea in the Top 4. For Roma the problem is their current shape as they have won just one point in their last three games. Last week the Wolves hosted Bologna at the Olimpico, but surprisingly they suffered a 2-3 loss. Bologna’s Stefano Denswil scored himself an own goal and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also scored, but it was not Roma’s day as they suffered their 6th loss for the season.
This is going to be one of the best games from the 24th round of the Serie A. Both teams are having the same ambitions – to finish in the Top 4, so you can be sure that they will give their all at the Gewiss Stadium. Roma must be worried of their current shape, but let’s see how they will do.
