Atalanta vs Juventus
Date: Wednesday, 30th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
It’s unfortunate that the Orobici had to come against the mighty La Madama in the final eight of the domestic cup. The seven-time Serie A defending champions are really gunning for the treble this season, which evaded them at the last moment back in 2015.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s men had gotten a weak opponent, in Cagliari, in the Round of 16, and it may be fate’s way of setting things in balance that they are pitted against the Old Lady. The match against the Sardinians ended with a 0-2 scoreline, with both the goals coming right at the end of the tie, in the space of just four minutes.
The team from Turin holds the proud badge of being unbeaten in all of their Italian games this season. They really do look unstoppable, and it would take something special of a team to really hold them down. New addition Cristiano Ronaldo has been breaking records left and right and will be the most potent threat for the hosts, this Wednesday.

Atalanta vs Juventus Prediction
The dynamic duo of Leonardo Bonucci and Georgio Chiellini will be pillars at the back and ensure that whoever wants to get a peek at their net will have to deal with them first. No other team in the country has posted better defensive records than the Hunchback, and Orobici will find life hard this Wednesday.
Le Zebre has let just a total of one goal into their posts, in their last four matches, and kept clean sheets in ten of the last fourteen. In away ties, the players kept their nets free in eight of the last twelve trips. This momentous match will see the famed backline rise to the occasion once more, and keep their half free of goals.
The Black and Whites have recorded 26 straight wins against this rival, and the overall record reads 29-2. They are unbeaten in all of their domestic games and are so too in 42 of their last 47 fixtures. The squad is also unbeaten in 20 of their last 22 away ties.
A win for the visitors is rightfully expected.
