Roma travel to Atalanta for a Monday night Serie A clash as they seek to maintain their spot in the hunt for a top-four finish.
Atalanta’s last outing ended in a 1-1 draw against Fiorentina, leaving them in seventh place with 49 points.
While Roma were 3-0 winners against Udinese, before a 4-1 thumping of Feyenoord to advance to the Europa League semifinals.
Jose Mourinho’s side are currently in fourth place with 56 points and have pressure mounting on them to seal a top-four finish.
Roma have won just three of their last 16 league meetings with Atalanta – a run including September’s 1-0 loss at Stadio Olimpico.
Atalanta have been a better team in the second half of the season in all their campaigns under Gian Piero Gasperini in the Serie A.
Roma have kept nine clean sheets in the Serie A in 2023 – Barcelona are the only team in the top five leagues to have a better record.
The visitors have scored 11 times in their last 5 encounters and Atalanta will be wary of this, especially with their recent drought.
