Atalanta BC will be hosting AS Roma at the Gewiss Stadium for its 18th game of Serie A this season. Atalanta is currently at the third spot on the points table with 37 points. It has a slender 1 point lead over 4th placed Napoli and is 2 points behind 2nd placed Milan. A win against Roma will take it to the second spot, and further strengthen its chances of qualifying for the Champion’s League.
Roma is at the 6th spot with 28 points, and in the race for making it to the Conference League qualifiers. A win will take it ahead of Fiorentina, and give them a shot at making it to the Europa League Group stage at least.
Both the teams come into this game on a winning note, with Atalanta having beaten Hellas Verona in its last Serie A fixture. In fact, Atalanta has won its previous 5 games on the trot. Roma beat Spezia 2-0 in its previous game. The performance of the team this season has been sort of a mixed bag, with 9 wins, 7 losses, and just one draw.
However, when it comes to head-to-head performances, Roma has the upper hand, having beaten Atalanta in 12 out of 28 games played so far, and lost only 9. Although, most betting sites are predicting an Atalanta win this time around.
Match prediction and betting tips for Atalanta BC vs AS Roma Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Gewiss stadium, Bergamo, on the 18th of December 2021.
Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini is expected to have plenty of options to choose from, for his starting eleven. The squad is fully fit, with the exception of Robin Gosens who is nursing a hamstring injury.
Roma coach Jose Mourinho on the other hand will have to contend without his star midfielder Pellegrini, as well as forward Felix Afena-Gyan, who was shown a red card during stoppage time against Spezia. Spinazzola and Stephan El Shaarawy will also be unavailable for selection.
Going by the inconsistent performance of Roma so far this season, we predict that Atalanta will easily overcome the visitors.
Bet on an Atalanta win.
We think there is a very good chance that both teams score at least one goal each. That has been the case in three out of their previous four matches. Both teams have an attacking style of playing and are not always the best at keeping goals out. We are happy to take the odds on offer here.
