Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Roma and Atalanta square off against each other at Stadio Olimpico in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Saturday’s program in the Serie A. The Romans dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Sassuolo at the weekend and they are certainly eager to start a new winning run in the national championship. The capital club have slim chances of winning the Scudetto, but they are still in the race for a place in the Champions League and we predict the hosts will adopt an attack-minded approach in the football match against Atalanta. The Orobici, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Cagliari in front of home fans in their last league match and they are desperate to bounce back from the defeat. Given Atalanta’s attacking potential, a lively contest is on the cards and we believe that the two teams are going to play out a high-scoring draw at Stadio Olimpico.
Highlighted Player (Maxime Gonalons):
The 27-year-old France international defensive midfielder Maxime Gonalons has been with Lyon since the tender age of 10, climbing through the club’s rank all the way to the first-team regular and club captain. Gonalons made his competitive debut for Lyon in 2009 against Anderlecht in the UEFA Champions League playoof round when he came on for Jeremy Toulalan. During the seven seasons with Lyon’s first-team, Maxime Gonalons established himself as the mainstay completing the total of 212 Ligue 1 appearances. Reliable midfielder has been a major impact in Lyon’s Champions League challenges as well, taking part in all of his club’s five appearances in Europe’s elite competition last year. Playing in the holding role at Lyon, Maxime Gonalons’ influence is pivotal as the French international adds much needed steel to the midfield allowing his more creative teammates the freedom and carelessness upfront. His locker room impact is equally crucial as the 27-year-old midfielder is an imposing figure both on and off the pitch.
