AS Roma top picks and players to watch vs Atalanta Serie A 2022-23
Tammy Abraham: The English striker made 21 goal-contributions in Serie A last season and has continued his good form this season with two goals and an assist in six matches. Abraham is potent in the opposition box and his movement will cause a problem for the Atalanta defenders.
Paulo Dybala: AS Roma’s new no. 21 has gotten off to a great start since his move from Juventus in the summer transfer window. Dybala has smashed three goals and made two assists in the Serie A this season for his new club and he also opened his goal-scoring account in the UEFA Europa League last time out. His playmaking and shooting abilities make him a threat to the Atalanta defenders.
Atalanta top picks and players to watch vs AS Roma Serie A 2022-23
Teun Koopmeiners: The 24-year-old Dutchman has hit a purple patch this season, scoring four goals and assisting once in his last four matches in the Serie A. Koopmeiners can play both defensive and offensive midfield roles and is capable of positively affecting the game with his high-pressing style of play. The midfielder possesses a good passing range and can be effective against AS Roma on offensive transitions.
Ademola Lookman: The Nigerian forward has found his feet at Atalanta after a €9 million move from Leicester City in the 2022 summer transfer window. Lookman netted in Atalanta’s opening game of the league campaign and assisted a goal in their recent win over Monza. Lookman is quick on the ball and has a poacher’s instinct in front of the goal which could be handy against a strong AS Roma defence.
AS Roma vs Atalanta Serie A 2022-23 prediction
The 2022-23 Serie A campaign has yielded positive results for AS Roma and Atalanta so far. While Atalanta are one point ahead of Roma in the points table, the Romans have won five games on the bounce at home after the end of the previous season and have a high winning probability in this match.
Atalanta have been efficient in their performances away from home in this campaign but are yet to secure a major coup. The visitors have the odds slightly against them here, however, they can be expected to challenge for all three points.
