Italy – Serie A | AS Roma VS Atalanta BC; Monday, 08 January at 03:45 GMT +8

AS Roma have a strong season, with two of the last three matches winning in all competitions. They are five points behind the fourth position, which could secure a Champions League spot. Their recent win against Cremonese in the cup was a comfortable win, and they should have confidence for Sunday’s match against Atalanta, which could potentially lift them one or two spots up the table.

Atalanta, a team similar to AS Roma, have been playing well, winning five out of six matches in all competitions. They also dominate in the cup tie, with an xG of 3.16, compared to only 0.40 for their next opponent.

Jose Mourinho rested some players in the cup tie against Cremonese, allowing them to play in a tough game against Atalanta. Injured Chris Smalling and Tammy Abraham will not play in the upcoming Serie A match.

Atalanta’s head coach, Gian Piero Gasperini, did not rotate the squad in the cup tie, resulting in the notable absences of Teun Koopmeiners and Matteo Ruggeri, who are expected to return to the starting lineup in the upcoming Serie A tie. Other missing players include Jose Luis Palomino and Hans Hateboer.

Predicted lineups:

AS Roma

Goalkeeper: Rui Patricio
Defenders: Gianluca Mancini, Evan Ndicka, Diego Llorente
Midfielders: Rasmus Kristensen, Edoardo Bove, Bryan Cristante, Leandro Paredes, Stephan El Shaarawy
