Juventus vs Atalanta
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Turin.
Juventus have been in fine form since early December and they host Atalanta for their Matchday 12 clash on Wednesday in a great mood, as they caught up with the top and sit four points behind AC Milan. They’ve been in great form up front and now come off as heavy favourites to secure the points once again.
Bianconeri beat Dynamo Kyiv (3-0), Torino (2-1), Barcelona (0-3), and Genoa (1-3) and scored 11 goals along the way, conceding just two. They have struggled for consistency without Cristiano Ronaldo but his impact was nothing short of expected, although it leaves Andrea Pirlo and his men with a lot yet to prove this term.
Atalanta, on the other hand, bounced to the winning ways and secured the knockout stages in the Champions League with a 0-1 win at Ajax last week, building on the success in Serie A too. They beat Fiorentina (3-0) with confidence and ended a streak of three league outings without a win, which sees them sitting six points behind 4th placed Juve.
