Atalanta vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: 7 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo).
Atalanta and Juventus will open Sunday’s Serie A program with another super-exciting Gameweek 34 matchup in the battle for the top-four finish.
Atalanta completely joined the battle by claiming three successive wins and they are now only two points below the fourth-placed Inter Milan in the Serie A table.
La Dea have shown impressive attacking form of late, bagging eight goals during the mentioned three-win streak against Roma, Torino, and Spezia.
Luis Muriel was among the scorers on Wednesday evening in a 3-2 success against relegation-threatened Spezia at Gewiss Stadium.
Juventus, on the other side, managed to terminate their five-game winless streak by beating Lecce 2-1 in Turin.
Dusan Vlahovic bagged the decisive goal late in the first half as we saw the likes of Federico Chiesa, Manuel Locatelli, and Paul Pogba all coming in the second half of the affair.
Things look much better for Massimiliano Allegri in terms of health and his roster but Juventus currently have huge issues with the lack of defensive meticulousness.
I Bianconeri faced five shots on target in the home clash against Lecce and they are without a clean sheet in six subsequent games across competitions.
Juventus are also winless in five straight away games in all competitions, three of which they have lost. This is not a great sign for Allegri considering Atalanta’s recent form.
Atalanta vs Juventus Head-to-head
- Juventus have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup with 35 wins, 14 draws, and just 6 losses in the previous 55 encounters with La Dea.
- We witnessed a six-goal thriller that ended in a 3-3 stalemate in the return match between these two teams in January this year at Allianz Stadium.
- Both teams scored in four of the previous five head to head encounters.
Atalanta vs Juventus Prediction
Neither team have impressed defensively of late which is why we see great value in backing goals at both ends at the odds of 1.80.
Atalanta are in a better form but we struggle to find value in the home win pick at the 2.30 odds knowing they’ve only beaten Juventus 6 times in the previous 55 head to head affairs. Instead, we will rather take the Over 1.5 goals in the first half pick at the attractive 3.25 odds.
