Atalanta vs Roma Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

After a very strong season last term, Atalanta begin their season at home to second place finishers Roma on Sunday in Serie A. Atalanta will find this season must tougher than last after finishing fourth in the table after a meteoric rise after they have lost a number of big players from the squad due to that very success. La Dea come off a win over Valencia away in their last friendly ahead of the season on Friday. Rafael Toloi scored first for the visitors after 13 minutes and despite being hit back upon, they would go on to win the match 1-2 through Luis Palomino's second half goal. Roma, under a new manager, lost their final warm up match of the summer away to Celta Vigo on Sunday. They lost 4-1 to the Europa League semi-finalists, with Kevin Strootman scoring a mere consolation goal after they had fallen four behind. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Roma have historically dominated this tie, but that tide has swung in the last couple of seasons. Roma have not beaten Atalanta since 2014, with the home side for this match picking up two wins and three draws in that period. Last season, Atalanta won this fixture 2-1, while drawing 1-1 in Rome. Also, both of these teams were high scorers and also shipped a fair number of goals last time around as well, so it would be a decent bet to go with both teams to score here. A draw is at 12/5, and that looks very tempting here as both sides will have some early season kinks to work out. Roma are the bigger side on paper, but Atalanta have had their number of late. A draw with both teams scoring can get you 11/1 odds.

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta had quite a strong preseason, and will come into the match with some confidence after that and their finish last term. However, summer is not always a good predictor of results when the matches get real. Gian Piero Gasperini has remained in charge of La Dea, and he's hoping to find a way to replace the running of midfield Franck Kessie after he left for Milan. Full back Andrea Conti has also left the club, but influential players like Papu Gomez have stayed and have been joined with new signings Andreas Cornelius and Josip Ilicic, among others.

Atalanta Team News

Atalanta have no injuries or suspension issues to begin this season with, rather it will be about finding the best group of players to combat this Roma side.

Roma Preview

Roma have changed their manager in the summer after Luciano Spalletti left after spats with the board. Eusebio di Francesco has traded Sassuolo for Rome, and he has a big job on his hands after the departure of winger Mohamed Salah to Liverpool and center back Antonio Rudiger to Chelsea. It's been rumored he'll be bringing in Riyad Mahrez to replace him, but that has so far yet to happen. His side have splashed the cash, though, on the likes of Hector Moreno, Aleksandar Kolarov, and Lorenzo Pellegrini, among numerous other signings.

Roma Team News

Di Francesco will be without right back Rick Kardsrop, left back Emerson, center midfielder Alessandro Florenzi, and left winger Stephan El Shaarawy due to injuries for this opener.
