AS Roma coach, Jose Mourinho, is likely to use a 3-5-2 formation with Rui Patricio as goalkeeper, Mancini, Llorente and Celik as defenders, Kristensen, Cristante, Paredes, Bove and Zalewski as midfielders, and Dybala and Lukaku as attackers.

Meanwhile, Atalanta, who won 9, drew 2, lost 7, will try to maintain their position above AS Roma. Atalanta coach, Gian Piero Gasperini, will likely field a 3-4-1-2 formation with Carnesecchi as goalkeeper, Scalvini, Djimsiti, and Kolasinac as defenders, Zappacosta, De Roon, Ederson, and Ruggeri as midfielders, and Koopmeiners, Scamacca, and De Ketelaere as striker.

In the last 16 of the Coppa Italia, Roma and Atalanta both won. Roma won 2-1 against Cremonese, while Atalanta won 3-1 over Sassuolo. This victory made both of them qualify for the quarter-finals.

In this match, AS Roma will try to take advantage of the advantage of playing at home to get three points. However, Atalanta, which has a better record in the last meeting between the two teams, will provide fierce resistance.
