Unstoppable Atalanta March On: Can Roma Stop Them?

Atalanta took on Marseille in the UEL semifinals and had no trouble winning the series. The first leg in France finished 1-1, but the second in Bergamo finished 3-0. Ademola Lookman, Matteo Ruggeri, and El Bilal Toure were the scorers.

None of those three is Atalanta’s top scorer, which speaks highly of the team. That honor goes to Gianluca Scamacca, who has scored 17 goals in all competitions.

On the other hand, AS Roma failed to eliminate Bayer Leverkusen. The Giallorossi weren’t the betting favorites, but they put up a good fight, at least in the second leg, which ended 2-2. In fact, AS Roma almost became the first team to beat the German side this season, but Josip Stanisic scored the equalizer in the 97th minute.


In the end, both sides will arrive in good spirits. Atalanta will try to extend its non-losing streak to seven games, while AS Roma will try to take revenge and keep hope alive.
