Atalanta vs Roma Prediction

Both teams had Europa League semi-final duties on Thursday. Fatigue will affect them equally. In this case, we do fancy Atalanta who have been on a much better run of form lately. Also, the Dea own a strong home record this season. They won 11, drew 2, and lost 3 of the previous 16 home matches in the league.

Roma won just one of the previous five matches in all competitions. Their back line has been anything but reliable of late. Daniele De Rossi’s troops have not kept a clean sheet in six straight matches across competitions. Knowing that the Lupa are also winless in the previous three head-to-head encounters with Atalanta, we’ll opt for the home win bet at the 2.00 odds.

The second pick would be Both Teams To Score at the 1.70 odds. We saw goals at both ends in four of Atalanta’s last five matches in all competitions. The same scenario occurred in five of Roma’s previous six outings across competitions. Both teams also scored in six of the previous eight head-to-head outings between Atalanta and Roma.
