As Juventus seek a ninth successive Serie A title, they are facing a strong challenge from Inter Milan, but their more immediate concern will be to earn another three points when visiting Atalanta this weekend. The Italian league leaders have yet to be beaten in competitive action this season, but the hosts can be difficult opponents as proved by their qualification for the Champions League this season. Atalanta may be more inconsistent this term, but they will be determined to show that their resounding Coppa Italia victory against Juventus earlier this year was no fluke.
Following their third position at the end of the 2018-19 Serie A campaign, Atalanta have found life slightly more difficult this season but have still lost just two domestic matches amid a struggling performance in Champions League action. Of more concern is that both defeats were suffered on home soil when Torino and Cagliari claimed away victories. Just two wins have been registered at the Gewiss Stadium this season by the Lombardy based team although their recent 1-1 home draw with Manchester City is an encouraging sign as is a 2-2 draw at Napoli later last month.
As for Juventus, that winning habit just persists with a surprise 1-1 draw at Lecce last month preventing the Old Lady from winning twelve successive competitive matches. Juve have drawn two away contests and won the remainder of their Serie A games this term, but that very slight vulnerability on away soil will offer some comfort to their hosts. Atalanta will have also noted that Juventus have yet to score more than two goals in any of their away games this season although the no Italian team has breached the Juve defence more than once on their travels.
Remo Freuler (thigh) is a doubtful starter for Atalanta, but there is hope that Duvan Zapata (thigh) will be available for selection. However, Ruslan Malinovskyi and Josip Ilicic are both suspended following previous dismissals.
Giorgio Chiellini (knee ligaments) is a long-term absentee for Juventus while Alex Sandro and Miralem Pjanic are doubtful with groin injuries. A broken rib may sideline Blaise Matuidi, but there is a possibility that Matia Perin (dislocated shoulder) could return. Marco Pjaca is not expected to be available but is back in training following a serious knee ligament injury.
One factor to note about Juventus this season and in previous campaigns is their ability to win games no matter the performance. Scoring late goals to claim three points has become a characteristic of the team, which was demonstrated in two recent matches when they scored added-time winners. Hosts Atalanta will hope to be the first team to beat the Old Lady this season, but they have registered just two clean sheets since the beginning of August and none on home soil. Therefore, it may be a good bet may be for Juventus to win priced at 13/10 with bet365.
A second pick is for A Winning margin of One Goal for Juventus offered at 3/1 by Bet365. Glancing at this season’s statistics for Juve, they have netted more than twice in just two games and rarely inflict heavy defeats on any team. In seven of their last eight competitive games, Juventus have earned single goal margin victories with a majority of those triumphs secured by 2-1 scorelines. The Old Lady have also yet to win any competitive game on the road this term by more than a one-goal margin.
