Atalanta v Roma Preview

Overcoming a 1-0 deficit with a 4-1 victory in midweek in the Europa League quarter-finals, Roma will now shift their attention to the Serie A as they look to seal the top four spot ahead of their visit to the Gewiss Stadium on Monday night. Atalanta currently sit seventh in the league table, five points behind Inter Milan and seven points behind AC Milan and Roma in their pursuit for European football next season. Gasperini’s men have had a difficult second half to the season having accumulated just 14 points in their last 11 matches, with 3W, 2D and 6L. La Dea have struggled on the attacking front, having scored just 3 goals in their last four home matches. With their top scorer Lookman sidelined due to injury and a dip in form of the hot-property Rojlund, Roma’s visit by no means will be an easy one for Atalanta – with the visitors having one of the best defense in the league.

Roma on the other hand will be highly motibvated following their European exploits midweek. A late Dybala equalizer and two goals in extra time helped Jose Mourinho’s men defeat last year’s winners Feyenoord 4-1 and enter the Europa League semi-finals. The Giallorossi will be boosted by the return of both their star attackers Dybala and Abraham who came on and had a huge impact in midweek. Roma currently sit fourth in the table following this week’s decision of overturning Juventus’ 15-point deduction, meaning they rose to third with Mourinho’s men currently occupying the final Champions League spot on mere goal difference – level on points with AC Milan and just two points ahead of Inter Milan. They are also in good form in the league, having won each of their last three matches, conceding none in the process. Roma’s mean defense, lack of attacking impetus by Atalanta and the return of their star strikers in the lineup could mean the odds are likely to favour the visitors in this matchup.
