AS Roma vs Atalanta Preview

AS Roma vs Atalanta

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Olimpico

Date: 27th August 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

The Italian Serie A continues to deliver the big games in early season as two teams who finished inside the top seven last season go head to head in this fixture, both looking to continue their strong start to the season.

Atalanta is not considered one of the big boys of Italian football and they are not seen as a contender for the top four this season, however, they ended 2017 inside the top four and were impressive in the Europa League last season.

This season, they have started brightly with a 4-0 win over Frosinone,  and they will be looking to show Roma that they can fight it out with the big boys yet again this season.

AS Roma has reemerged as a powerhouse in Italian football over the past few seasons, and they will be looking to keep themselves in the hunt for the Serie A title yet again.

They reached the semifinal of the Champions League last season, and expectations are higher for them now despite losing some key players like Allison.

The Giallorossi started their season with a tough 1-0 win over Torino, but playing at home should make this game easier for them, however, they cannot afford to underrate Atalanta.

Atalanta have won three, drawn two, and lost one of their last six Serie A games against Roma.  This is as many as they won in their previous 18 meetings.
