Match Prediction, Odds & Free Tips
On Sunday night, Atalanta host Juventus at the Gewiss Stadium, in a crucial game in the fight for the Champions League spots in Serie A this season.
A shock 2-1 home defeat against Cagliari continued a poor recent run of form for the Nerazzurri in Serie A. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team has now won just one of their last seven outings in the Italian top-flight. A rather untypical factor in that recent poor run for Atalanta is a lack of goals, as they have failed to score in three of their last five Serie A matches.
The poor run of form has seen Atalanta drop out of the league’s top-four, with Sunday’s opponents replacing the Nerazzurri in the last Champions League spot. The team from Turin are now two points ahead of their hosts in the top-four fight.
A stellar recent run of league form hasn’t just led to a return to the league’s top-four but has also led to talk that the Bianconeri could make a late charge for the Scudetto. However, Max Allegri’s team currently trail leaders Inter by eight points. The men from Milan also have a game in hand on the team from Turin.
A title challenge may be a step too far for the visitors. However, an unbeaten run of ten games in the Italian top-flight has certainly lifted spirits at the club. New signings Dusan Vlahovic and Denis Zakaria both opened their goalscoring accounts last time out in the league, scoring on their debuts in a 2-0 win over Verona.
