Atalanta is set to host Roma in round 21 of Italian Serie A.

Atalanta is the top scoring team in Serie A with 44 scored goals in 20 matches, which is an average of more than 2 goals per game. Atalanta is playing really nice, offensive and enjoyable soccer. Atalanta’s home record is 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, which is not great, but if they continue to score goals like they do, that will change soon. Duvan Zapata is leading goal scorer with 14 golas, while Papu Gomez has 6 assists. Vernier and Freuler are both injured and will not be playing in this match. Atalanta is holding 8th place at the moment and are only 4 points away from Champions League spot for next season.

Roma is one of the top teams in Italy, with great players, nice game play and solid leadership, and are always close to the top on standings. Roma is holding the 5th spot at the moment and are only 2 points away from Champions league spot, but there are three teams breathing down their necks that are only 2 points behind. Roma had a rocky start to the season, they couldn’t score a goal, defense was making mistakes, and their game was simply not on high enough level. Little by little all of that changed as Roma players caught good form and chances started to come and with that goals came as well. Roma has scored 37 goals thus far in the season and is led by El Sharaawy with 6 and Kolarov with 5 goals. Injury list is not long, but some important players like De Rossi, Perotti and Jesus are on it. Roma is red hot at the moment with 5 game winning streak.

Head to head between these two teams it is really hard to expect something based on trends because they had games with 1 goal, 4 goals, 3 goals and even zero goals, but given the fact that both teams are in a great goal scoring form I will choose to bet on goals in this match.

Pick:
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals combined -125

Being from Croatia I was raised with soccer all around me and I loved to watch and play soccer ever since i was little kid, especially after Croatia won third place in 1998 World Cup in France. I watch and follow soccer on a daily basis and to get the oppurtunity to write about it is amazing.
