Roma – Atalanta
Roma faces Atalanta in a game from the 20th round of the Italian Serie A. The match is going to be played at the Stadio San Siro on Saturday evening.
Roma continue to pursue their main goal for this season, which is a qualification for the Champions League. So far The Wolves are moving well and they are 4th in the league standings with 39 points won. Their record in the Serie A so far is 12 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats.
But the last two games didn’t go very well for Roma. They lost points against Juventus and Sassuolo, winning just one point from these two matches. Roma’s advantage in front of the 5th Lazio is just two points, so they can’t allow themselves much more mistakes in the coming weeks.
As for Atalanta, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team is currently 9th in the league standings with 27 points won. Atalanta’s main goal remains another qualification for Europa League, just like last season. Right now the club from Bergamo is trailing on just three points behind the 6th Sampdoria, so nothing is over for them just yet. They have enough time to improve, get more consistent and catch up with the rest for a Top 6 finish.
Roma continue to be without the heavy injured Rick Karsdorp, while Gregoire Defrel is still doubtful. Everyone else at the team is now fit and ready to play in the next game.
The last two games didn’t go very well for Roma and now they have to get back in the right rhythm. This season has been good for The Wolves so far, but the most interesting part of the campaign is still in front of us. As for Atalanta, they have to do their best until the end of the season, if they want to reach another European qualification.
