Juventus vs Atalanta Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Juventus host Atalanta at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday in a clash between two fearsome Serie A attacking forces. Both teams are prone to leaving themselves open and I am tipping over 2.5 goals at 1.78.

Juventus FC Form & Team News


Juventus have an unassailable lead on top of Serie A but have lost some of their solidity. The Bianconeri went down 2-0 away to AS Roma in their last match to extend their run without a clean sheet to eight matches in all competitions.

Massimiliano Allegri faces an uncertain future at Juventus and this could distract his players. One who will be laser focused regardless is Cristiano Ronaldo as he looks to bridge a five-goal gap to Serie A top scorer Fabio Quagliarella in two matches.

Ronaldo is paying 2.05 for anytime goalscorer and there is value here given that he has seven goals in his last seven matches for the Bianconeri. Juventus are paying 2.50 for the home win due to a combination of their average form and incredible record throughout the season.

Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio Form & Team News


Atalanta picked up their fourth Serie A win in a row with a 2-1 home Serie A triumph over Genoa. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men scored through Musa Barrow and Timothy Castagne before their visitors pulled one back late on.

A 2-0 Coppa Italia final defeat to Lazio ended Atalanta's winning streak in all competitions but that does not detract from their great league form.

La Dea have fought their way up to fourth on the Serie A table and have plenty of incentive to chase a win as the race for UEFA Champions League football heats up. Atalanta will be counting on Duvan Zapata and he will probably be popular in the anytime goalscorer market at 2.70.

Atalanta are paying 3.26 for the win with bookies measuring up their incredible form against Juve’s home advantage. A draw meanwhile is offered at similar odds of 3.25.

Atalanta are Serie A’s top scorers with 73 goals with Juventus second on 69 and this means there is value in over 2.5 goals at 1.78. 

Juventus vs Atalanta Head to Head


Juventus are 34-5 with 12 draws in 51 meetings against Atalanta since 1990/91. The most recent Serie A encounter between the two was a 2-2 Boxing Day draw which saw a Duvan Zapata brace, a Berat Djimsiti own goal and a late Cristiano Ronaldo equaliser.

Atalanta were at home that day as they were for the 3-0 Coppa Italia quarter-final win which followed. The Bianconeri have the chance to claim revenge on their own turf now.

Juventus vs Atalanta Match Up


Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to be relentless in his pursuit of the top scorers’ prize and has 21 Serie A goals to his name this campaign. Ronaldo will be up against a rival in Duvan Zapata who has 22.

Sampdoria’s Fabio Quagliarella leads the way on 26 goals but this is not an unassailable lead with two matches to go for each team.

  • Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 7 goals in his last 7 appearances (all competitions).

Verdict


Juventus and Atalanta have the two best attacking records in Serie A and lots of goals should be expected on Sunday. I am tipping over 2.5 goals at 1.78 in what is bound to be a cracking contest.
