Atalanta vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 18 April 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo.
Atalanta and Juventus are set to lock horns in the most exciting game of the 31st round in Serie A on Sunday afternoon at Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo.
Both outfits were in a mood for scoring goals last weekend and we should be in for a spectacular action-packed and eventful contest this time around. La Dea should enter the match in higher spirits after a significant rise in form in the last several weeks.
Gianpiero Gasperini’s men won four on the spin in the league netting as many as 11 goals in the process. They’ve won the last two outings with an identical 3-2 scoreline, beating Udinese and Fiorentina along the way.
The Bianconeri have also found goals easy to come by recently. They notched two or more in three successive games, including back-to-back wins over Napoli and Genoa in the last two fixtures.
Atalanta vs Juventus Head-to-head
Juventus have been the dominant force in the history of this match-up with 32 wins, 12 draws, and 3 defeats in 47 encounters with La Dea.
However, La Vecchia Signora won just one of the last six matches against Atalanta.
Three of the last four H2H clashes ended without a winner, including this season’s 1-1 draw in mid-December last year at Allianz Stadium.
It is also worth noting that these two sides will battle it out in the Coppa Italia final in exactly one month from now.
Atalanta vs Juventus Prediction
Backing goals just has to be the way to go here. Both teams have been flying high attackingly of late and we can’t imagine any of them keeping a clean sheet here.
As for the outcome, we are tempted to back the red-hot Atalanta to continue their superb spell of form and overtake Juventus sitting at the third place of the Serie A standings with a three-pointer here.
La Dea notched 41 goals in 15 league games on the home patch this season. Andrea Pirlo’s men did not keep a clean sheet in seven consecutive matches.
