ATN Vs ROM Dream11, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: AS Roma’s wavering defence squares off against a ruthless Atalanta outfit.
The most exquisite attack in Serie A 2019-20, Atalanta will be just the slight bit dejected at only being in 4th place despite having ripped apart sides this season. They have wiped the floor with teams, sparing no expense in ruthlessly throwing their defensive gameplan out of the window to put in extremely pleasing to the eye displays and torch their way to an incredible 61 goals.
And it’s started paying rewards for them as well with the club currently on a three match unbeaten spree with the 2-1 win to Fiorentina the last time around. They have thrived at a time when AS Roma has been in agonising touch, making the most of AS Roma’s predicament to consolidate fourth spot in their favour.
Elsewhere, AS Roma had to taste their third winless result the last time around as they were battered in a five goal thriller by Bologna, one the side lost 3-2 on the day. They have now fallen three points behind Atalanta in the fight for the fourth place, a position they’ll be looking to relinquish and break free of their remorse when the two sides take to the middle today.
This will be a closely contested affair with the fixture being a potential fight for fourth position, a spot which is extremely dear to either side. What does favour the hosts is their exuberant attacking unit, one which will capitalise on AS Roma’s catapulting defence to guide the side towards three points on the day.
