Preview: Atalanta BC vs. Roma

Sports Mole previews the Serie A match between Atalanta BC and Roma on Sunday.

Roma will be looking to keep up the pressure on Serie A leaders Juventus when they travel to Atalanta BC on Sunday.

Rudi Garcia's side have been overtaken at the top by the Turin club following a run of three consecutive draws, the latest coming a week ago against Cagliari.

Atalanta's 2-0 reversal at Sassuolo last Sunday was the club's third defeat in their last six outings.

The hosts will be without Luca Antei, who is suspended following his red card against Sassuolo. Guglielmo Stendardo and Gianpaolo Bellini will also miss out through injury.

For Roma, Vasilis Torosidis and Federico Balzaretti will miss the match due to injuries, so Garcia could select the same XI that drew with Cagliari.
