Juventus vs Atalanta
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Wednesday, 28 February 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Adverse weather conditions have prevented Juventus and Atalanta to take on each other in the league clash at the weekend, but the Allianz Stadium pitch should be in state to host the reverse fixture of their Coppa Italia semis in mid-week. Bianconeri head into the game with a one-goal cushion thanks to Gonzalo Higuain’s difference-maker in Reggio Emilia, but it’s still far from over as La Dea have been a pretty tough opposition for all teams so far in the season.
Juve are actually yet to concede in this term of Coppa Italia after they’ve eased past Genoa and Torino in the previous two rounds. The current double crown holders in Italy have generally been super tough to break down in all competitions so far in the season and Atalanta will face huge troubles finding the back of the net on Wednesday at Allianz Stadium.
Massimiliano Allegi’s men have conceded just one goal in last 12 league matches and they’ve kept five clean sheets on the bounce in their own backyard in Serie A outings. Marco Giampaolo’s side won’t come into the game in the highest of spirits being winless in last four games across competitions and having suffered a disappointing Europa League elimination conceding a last-gasp equalizer from Borussia Dortmund in the home fixture last Thursday.
Juventus vs Atalanta: Head-to-head
Atalanta have never been a challenging opposition to Juventus who have only 2 of 39 H2H ties with La Dea.
Moreover, Atalanta have lost 16 and drawn 3 of their 19 clashes with Bianconeri in Turin.
Juventus have scored two or more goals in each f last four home meetings with Atalanta.
Juventus vs Atalanta: Prediction
Even though La Dea have won four and drawn one of last five league ties on the road, and even though they’ve dispatched the likes of Napoli in the quarterfinal of Coppa Italia, we still see Juve as massive favourites to book the final with the continuation of their fine trend in matches with Atalanta.
The home win is paid at 1.55 odds, while you can also take Juventus to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 1.90.
