The final Serie A round before the international break includes some crucial matches, and these Roma vs. Atalanta predictions look at a key clash at the top of the table. Both sides have looked impressive in the opening weeks of the campaign with Atalanta unbeaten in domestic action.
Roma vs. Atalanta odds
1 – A draw at – 13/5
2 – Roma under 1.5 total goals – 4/5
3 – Total goals scored under 2.5 – 17/16
4 – Both teams to score – 5/7
5 – A 1-1 draw at – 17/2
Both sides have maintained a positive run of form since the start of the campaign with Atalanta picking 14 points from six games with no defeats so far for Gian Piero Gasperini’s visitors.
Roma’s form is slightly behind, with 13 points picked form league action, as Jose Mourinho’s side look to balance domestic action with a return to the Europa League.
With such closeness in form between the two teams, there is little to pick between them as a favourite, and a draw looks the most likely option ahead of the tie.
As expected, based on their respective form, both sides have looked impressive in front of goal in recent weeks, with Roma scoring eight in six, and Gasperini’s Atalanta netting 10 in domestic games.
However, within their goal per game ratios, the two sides have spread their goal return relatively thinly across each match in Serie A.
Mourinho’s hosts have only managed to score more than once in Serie A on two occasions this season with Atalanta doing slightly better with 50% of their games featuring over 1.5 total goals for the Bergamo giants.
Only half of Roma’s league games have included over 2.5 total goals scored by both sides inside 90 minutes of action with just one of Atalanta’s league games involving more than two goals scored combined.
A closely fought draw will keep both sides in their respective current league positions, with a chance missed to put pressure on their title rivals, ahead of the international break.

Roma team news
Mourinho is still balancing an injury list in Rome with Rick Karsdorp, Nicolo Zainolo, Stephen El Shaarawy and Gini Wijnaldum all still sidelined. That lack of options will force Mourinho into sticking with a unchanged line up from their 2-1 win over Empoli last weekend.
Atalanta team news
Gasperini is still missing two players through injury with Duvan Zapata and Berat Djimsitiout until October. The visiting boss is set to reshuffle his options with Joakim Mæhle and Mario Pašalić pushing for a recall to the starting XI.
