Atalanta is on a six-match winning streak in Serie A
Such a successful period was overshadowed by the loss in the Champions League. Gian Piero Gasperini's team lost at home to Villarreal and left the main European club tournament. The Black and Blues were drawn against Olympiacos in the Europa League play-offs. On February 17, Atalanta will take on the Greek giants on their home field and will play them away on the 24th.
After a disappointing encounter with Villarreal, the Bergamo team traveled to Verona to win 2-1. One of the goals scored by Aleksei Miranchuk. The Russian appeared in Atalanta's starting lineup for the first time in a long while and marked this important event by scoring a goal. Having beaten Verona, Atalanta moved up to the third place in the Serie A standings and they are only three points behind the currently leading Inter.
Roma secured an important win
In contrast to Atalanta, the Giallorossi successfully completed the group stage of the European Cup tournament. On the final matchday of the Conference League, Jose Mourinho's side beat CSKA Sofia 3-2 away to finish first in the group, and as a result, avoided the play-offs in the 1/16 finals.
After the trip to Bulgaria, the Romans had another win in the domestic league, beating Spezia 2-0 at home. At the beginning of each half, both defenders Smalling and Ibañez scored. As a result, Roma broke the mini-streak of two defeats in a row and moved up to 6th place in the standings. The gap from the top 4 is only 8 points.
The last time Roma beat Atalanta was in 2017. The Blacks and Blues have a seven-match unbeaten streak in their confrontation with the Giallorossi, with 4 wins and 3 draws.Watch Free Live Stream
Expert Betting Tips
Atalanta is one of the most unbalanced teams in the championship. The Black and Blues concede in almost every game, so Roma, despite the lack of attacking performers, is very likely to score in the upcoming match. However, Atalanta will probably score as well. The match does not promise to be very high-scoring, but the rivals simply have to exchange goals.
