Serie A: Juventus vs Atalanta preview


Defending champions Juventus have the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table when they play their postponed Serie A match against Atalanta on Wednesday at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. The two teams have already met three times this season: the reverse league fixture ended 2-2 in October and then Juventus won both legs in the Italian Cup by the same scoreline, 1-0. Juventus have won their last nine home matches against Atalanta in all competitions, but Atalanta have established themselves as a solid team during the past couple of seasons.

Juventus are in exceptional form, they have not lost a match since the middle of November and their performances were heavily rewarded last week as they pulled through to the Champions League quarter-finals following a 2-1 victory at Tottenham and then moved up to top spot in Serie A after defeating Udinese 2-0 at the weekend. Second-placed Napoli are just one point behind at the moment, so the game in hand against Atalanta is the perfect opportunity to increase that gap. Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi remain injured and will sit this one out.

Atalanta ended a poor streak of five matches without victory in all competitions with a 1-0 win at Bologna last weekend, preserving their chances of grabbing a top-six finish at the end of the season. They are in eighth place at the moment, six points behind sixth-placed AC Milan, but Atalanta could narrow that gap if they get something out of their game in hand at Juventus. Mattia Caldara is the only injury concern for the away side as he is struggling with unresolved back problems.

Probable line-ups:

Juventus: Buffon - Lichtsteiner, Benatia, Chiellini, Sandro - Sturaro, Pjanic, Matuidi - Costa, Higuain, Mandzukic

Atalanta: Berisha - Toloi, Palomino, Masiello - Hateboer, Freuler, Cristante, Spinazzola - Ilicic, Gomez - Petagna

My prediction: Juventus to win 1-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Juventus win - 1.39
Draw - 4.50
Atalanta win - 8.50

    The race for the title looks over now although the Juventus lead is "just" four points.
    They didn't took any wrong steps while they were under pressure behind Napoli in the standings but how about now, at lest there was a competition this season for them, Juventus will still win the title but not as easy as usual.
