Goal-fest expected on Wednesday in Rome

<div><h2>AS Roma vs Atalanta</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/it/serie-a/as-roma-vs-atalanta-bergamasca-calcio-3890971/?mtid=1"><strong>Wednesday, September 25, at Stadio Olimpico (Rome)</strong></a></p><p>AS Roma are unbeaten this season in both Serie A and Europa League. In their domestic league they are sitting 4th in the standings with 8 points earned in 4 matches and they scored 10 goals in the process having the 2nd best attack in the league after Napoli. They enter this match on the back of 3 consecutive wins across all competitions. Last weekend they beat Bologna 2-1 on the road with a last second goal from no other than their star striker Edin Dzeko. He scored in his previous 5 matches for both club and country and we expect him to contribute on the scoreboard also against Atalanta on Wednesday. On the other side, Atalanta kicked-off their 1st ever Champions League campaign with huge 4-0 defeat in Croatia against Dinamo Zagreb. Last weekend they brilliantly came from 2 goals down against Fiorentina winning 1 point with a 95th goal from Timothy Castagne. Last season the 2 domestic league head-to-head matches between the 2 teams ended with the same score (3-3).</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>AS Roma have few injury issues with Diego Perotti, Cengiz Under and Davide Zappacosta all sidelined with injuries while former Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is questionable. On the other side, Atalanta have no notable missing players. We were expecting more from Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel in both UCL and Serie A matches. They even played together in the attacking line against Fiorentina but they both failed to deliver. It’s time for them to bounce back and start scoring again because their quality is world class, and both can solve a match on their own. On the other, Edin Dzeko is always the player to watch. He is priced at 1.95 with Bet365 to be anytime goalscorer and we expect his to deliver once again and extend his phenomenal goal-scoring form.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>The bookies are expecting a close match and they are offering AS Roma at 2.1 while Atalanta are priced at 3.3 with Betfair. We said it at the beginning of the season, and we will say it again, Atalanta are an amazing squad but they will struggle this season because of the Champions League. They have a short bench and they won’t keep up a strong pace in every match. They were very unlucky not to score in Croatia last week against Dinamo Zagreb missing many chances. The 2 teams produced high-scoring matches when they played each other and not only. AS Roma score 10 while Atalanta score 9 in the 1st four rounds of the domestic season. They both have an attacking approach and we expect them to deliver once again and help us win our Alex Classic bet for this game.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.66 with Bet365</strong></em></a></p></div>
