In the second round of Italian Serie A, it’s home team Roma v Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico. This should be a clear cut outcome as the home team is the better side and should win in this game.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
Roma is the favourite in this match, and there are several reasons for that. Firstly, they have better players and more players to choose from. On the other hand, Atalanta doesn’t have a big roster and many players are tired after playing two games in one week since they are also playing Europa League qualifications. So, although the head-to-head outcomes in last games favour Atalanta, we will take 888sport’s offer at 1.61 for Roma’s win which is a fair price for a medium stake.
Roma started the season with a 1-0 win in Torino. The Romans dominated the whole game and scored in dying moments of the game thanks to a spectacular shot from Edin Dzeko. Javier Pastore blended into the team successfully and proved that Roma won’t miss Radja Nainggolan at all. The Roma players are fresh and are looking keenly for another win.
Atalanta had an easy job in the first round of Serie A. They were single-handedly led to victory by Alejandro Gomez who found the net twice and also gave two assists. Clearly, Atalanta is having a good run of results; they haven’t lost a single official game this season. The team’s last game was at home against FC Copenhagen in the Europa League qualifications and they drew 0-0. That could mean that their coach Gian Piero Gasperini will rest some key players.
