AS Roma vs Atalanta Preview

AS Roma vs Atalanta

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 6th January 2018

Kick-off time – 17:00 GMT

This game brings together two of Italy’s top performers in Europe this season.

They both clashed in the season’s opener, but a lot has changed since that August tie and we should be in for a few surprises here.

The host are having a hard time currently as they have dropped out of the  League race and the Coppa Italia.

They are now 9 points off the top of the league table and look unlikely to mount a serious challenge again this season.

With their focus now on getting into the top four, this game should be of immense importance to them.

They have avoided defeat in at least 80% of their home matches this season but their defence has been breached easily more recently.

Their 1-1 home draw with Sassuollo means they have conceded 3 goals in their last 4 home games.

Atalanta head into this in confidence mood after ousting league leaders SS Napoli in the Coppa Italia over the week and they will be looking to stop Roma’s momentum as the Romans look to end inside the top four again.

Atalanta will be happy to hear of Roma defencive struggles as they are one of the most attacking teams in Italy at the moment.

Atalanta have scored in the majority of their away games this season and both teams have scored in 78% of their away matches.
