ROM v ATN Dream11 : Roma move to home comfort for gameweek 5 as the side tries to hammer itself down into the top 4
AS Roma came under massive flak for rolling in underperforming and underwhelming players from the Premier League on loan for the ongoing Serie A season but the side have been quick to dismiss the jibes slated at them. An extremely solid start to the newest camping of the Italian league sees the sit in fourth place, a position the side would be looking to consolidate come today.
It wasn’t an easy start to life in the 2019-20 edition of the marquee league for the side by any stretch of the imagination with the outfit enduring two draws before finally settling into their groove. Defeating Bologna 2-1 in their previous outing, the side have now won two matches on the bounce to occupy a place in the echelons, one they’ll be looking to consolidate as they get ready to partake in the first set of encounters contested in the middle of the week.
Although Roma will be moving back to home for today’s clash, playing infront of a support which has never failed to voice its support for the side, they know things will be far from straightforward today. In Atalanta, the side face a tricky opponent, one filled with guile who have enjoyed a stable start to the season as well to find themselves as high as sixth as things stand.
With a 2-2 draw in their previous contest against Fiorentina, the side drew their first match of the season to see them sharing 7 points with three points ahead of the impending clash, making today’s match a must win one for the side if they are to retain their spot. The clamour of a spot in the top of the league has already started growing, making today’s match an intriguing proposition as either side look to propel themselves close to the revered spots.
ROM v ATN Match Prediction
With both the sides deciding to leave behind their defensive gameplan till now in the league and replying on their attacking exuberance to guide them through to wins, today’s match promises to a goals galore one. Both the sides will go hot out of the blocks in this one, with their forward players taking precedence acting as the custodians of their result today.
Given the fast flowing football and open play expected today, it’s a narrative which is set to favour AS Roma who’ll adequately exploit the many chances they get to rake up the goals today and get the three points from this one.

ROM v ATN Dream 11 Picks
ROM v ATN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With AS Roma having let in 7 goals till now in the league and Atlanta coming in with good form in the attacking side of their soirees, we have decided to venture into this encounter with the services of the hosts’ goal-keeper. Pau Lopez will be called upon time and time again by his side to pull off some critical saves for them and we envision him rising to the occasion.
ROM v ATN Dream11 Defenders
With Atalanta playing the two wingbacks in a 3-53 formation, their wingback duo makes for pristine value for this encounter. Left wingback Timothy Castagne ended up scoring the one goal as well in the previous encounter for the side, justifying his selection into our side with his partner, Robin Gosens partnering him for this one along with CB Rafael Toloi.
Elsewhere the home side have just the lone player come into our side for today’s encounter with us opting to divulge in the services of Alessandro Florenzi with a cleansheet the last thing we’ll be revelling ourselves in at the end of the 90 minutes.
ROM v ATN Dream11 Midfielders
AS Roma have spared no expense and left no stone unturned to punch above their weight and imbed in some sublime attacking displays across the course of the opening exchanges of the league. One of the most impressive teams in the league when it comes to traversing their way to the goal, the side have accumulated a staggering 10 goals in 4 matches, making players from their side become our topmost priority over here.
Bryan Cristante, Jordan Veretout, Justin Kluivert and Lorenzo Pellegrini all come in from the side for today’s clash as we opt for both the attacking and more defensively inclined picks to seamlessly blend in all of the side’s main performers. We have the lone pick from Atalanta come into our side as well meanwhile with us deciding to indulge in Josip Illicic.
ROM v ATN Dream11 Strikers
We decided to compensate our side with the attacking picks from Atalanta over here by getting in Duvan Zapata who will be critical to the side’s ambitions of mustering the three points today, a player who can exploit an AS Roma defence which is riddled by injuries at the moment.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kluivert is picked out as our captain for today’s match whilst Zapata is being made the vice-captain.
