Juventus vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
It may be hard to believe but Juventus was winless in six of their last seven matches. Sure, they lifted the eighth league crown in a row, but still, such a disappointing run is really not how they want their season to end. They have set high hopes for the next season, and it’s important for them that the team wraps up their campaign in style.
At present, there may not be a better team in Italy than Atalanta, as stats suggest. They won the last four games in a row, and no other squad has managed to match that run. With Milan giving tough competition for the fourth and last Champions League spot, Atalanta needs to deliver in this tie.

Juventus vs Atalanta Prediction
Generally, Juventus is the best team in the country, and have been for many years. They just recorded their eighth straight Scudetto, and are the favorites to repeat the feat at least till Cristiano leaves them.
After their league triumph, the team entered a period of complacency, and they are determined to put an end to it. Where better to do it than at their own home. Atalanta may be the in-form side now, but their h2h record against the Old Lady is, for want of a better word, pathetic.
Juventus registered 24 of the last 25 h2h wins and holds a 100 % unbeaten record at home. In addition, if not for a draw ten years back, the record would have been a 100 % winning one. Also, eight of the last thirteen matches saw Juve score two or more goals against them, and at this venue, the team repeated the feat in 14 of the last 17.
Moreover, with Cristiano chasing the Italian Golden Boot, there’s a high chance that Juve will be having a great night at Turin this weekend.
