Roma v Atalanta – Live Blog (18/08/18)
Roma have secured a first win in a Serie A match at home since January thanks to a first-half brace from Mauro Icardi.
The Roma striker netted the opener in the 54th minute after Samir Handanovic’s cross found the feet of Icardia to head home the ball.
The Nerazzurri have scored a total of four goals in their last five league matches and are unbeaten in their past seven home league games.
The visitors had an early lead when they were denied a penalty by Stefan Lofström but it was too little, too late.
Icardi has now scored in three successive Serie A games.
Roma’s other win in the last four away games came against Sampdoria on 21 January.
