Roma – Atalanta
Roma welcomes Atalanta in a match from the second round of the Italian Serie A. We are about to take a look at this game in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Roma started the new season just in the way they wanted – with a win. Eusebio Di Francesco’s boys beat Torino away from home, although this win didn’t come very easy. The Wolves had to wait until the 89th minute, when Edin Dzeko scored a winning goal after an assist from the new signing Justin Kluivert.
In the summer Roma made some very ambitious moves at the transfer market. Last season the club reached the 1/2-finals of the Champions League and now they are hungry for more success. It’s going to be hard to beat Juventus for the Serie A title, but good runs in the Calcio and the Champions League would mean another successful season for Roma.
Under the management of Gian Piero Gasperini, Atalanta are now one of the solid teams in the Serie A, participating in the European competitions as well. In the first round of the league Atalanta started with a bang, beating the newcomer Frosinone with 4-0 at home. Alejandro Gomez scored a brace for the club from Bergamo, while Hans Hateboer and Mario Pasalic also added goals for the win.
During the week Atalanta made a 0-0 draw against Kobenhavn in a match from the playoffs of the Europa League, leaving everything for the second leg at the Danish capital.
Roma might be a favourite against Atalanta, but certainly it won’t be easy for the home team. Atalanta are a very good team, which is pretty hard to beat. Roma will need to be at their best in order to win this one. As for Atalanta, most likely the away team would be satisfied with a point, too. We hope our winning soccer predictions for today are helpful.
