Juventus vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: 22 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus will be hoping to bounce back from an embarrassing 5-1 defeat at the hands of Napoli last Friday as they play host to direct UEFA Champions League rivals Atalanta on Sunday evening at Allianz Stadium.
I Bianconeri currently share the third position in the Serie A ladder with Inter Milan as the two teams sit three points above the likes of Lazio, Atalanta, and Roma in the quest for the top-four finish.
This adds on the significance of Sunday’s tie in Turin. To make things worse for the hosts, their counterparts have been scoring goals for fun in the recent outings.
Atalanta bagged as many as 13 goals in the previous two wins in all competitions. They destroyed Salernitana 8-2 in the last weekend’s league action and Spezia 5-2 in the mid-week’s R16 Coppa Italia clash.
Ademola Lookman has been one of the main catalysts for these wins with a brace in each of them and he will no doubts be the main target for Gianpiero Gasperini’s squad in the final third on Sunday.
Atalanta also have two successive wins in the league to back them up ahead of the trip to Turin.
Juventus, on the other side, terminated an eight-win thread in the league with the aforementioned catastrophe at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
