Match Preview

Juventus will travel to Atalanta's headquarters in the 31st week of Serie A 2020/2021 at the Gewiss Stadium, Sunday (18/4/2021). The two teams are both competing for tickets to the Champions League next season. 

Atalanta packed 61 points in 4th place, only one point behind Juventus in third place, and two points behind 2nd place AC Milan. However, Atalanta is also only two points ahead of Napoli who are in the fifth position. If it is to catch the standings leader Inter Milan (74 points), maybe it should be forgotten.

The previous week, Atalanta and Juventus both won three points. Atalanta beat host Fiorentina 3-2 through Duvan Zapata's two goals and a Josip Ilicic penalty. Meanwhile, Juventus won 3-1 to host Genoa through goals from Dejan Kulusevski, Alvaro Morata, and Weston McKennie.

Atalanta and Juventus certainly want to continue their positive trend. This duel has the potential to be tight.

If Atalanta wins, they will displace Juventus, and even have the opportunity to overtake AC Milan. If Juventus win, they will move away from Atalanta and have a chance to coup AC Milan from the 2nd ladder.

If this match ends up being just as strong, as in the first meeting of the season (1-1), then Milan could stay away from their pursuit. For Atalanta and Juventus, that is definitely not an ideal scenario.

Atalanta is a very dangerous opponent. In Serie A this season, Atalanta has scored a total of 71 goals, even more than Inter Milan (69 goals). Juventus (61 goals) are also special, but inconsistency still haunts them. Against Atalanta, the Juventus defense seems to have to work very hard.
