Atalanta vs Roma 02/15/2020
Atalanta currently sits fourth in the Serie A table with 42 points. They may not be the best team in Italy but they are the most prolific team in the league with 61 goals scored so far, which is nine more than the second-most prolific team, Lazio. Under manager Gian Piero Gasperini, Atalanta is playing exciting attacking football that results in a lot of goals. Their defense might be not on par with the likes of Inter Milan and Juventus, but they do their damage on the offensive end. In their last match, Atalanta defeated Fiorentina on the road 2-1 with Duvan Zapanta and Ruslan Malinovskiy scoring the goals. It should be noted that Atalanta has only lost one of their last ten games against Roma.
Players to Watch: Josip Ilicic (14 goals, 3 assists), Luis Muriel (12 G), Duvan Zapata (8 G, 5 A), Robin Gosens (7 G, 4 A), Papu Gomez (6 G, 10 A), Rafael Toloi (1 G, 5 A).
Three points behind Atalanta, Roma would like to close the gap and sneak into the Champions League places. However, they are winless in their last three games. They drew 1-1 to Lazio last January 26, lost to Sassuolo 4-2 at the start of February and lost to Bologna 3-2 last week. Down 3-1 after 70 minutes, Henrikh Mkhitaryan gave Roma a chance by cutting the deficit to one but Bryan Cristante was sent off in the 80th minute. It was too much for Roma as they suffered their second straight defeat. Roma needs to get back to their winning ways because more than six clubs are after their spot in the Serie A table.
