La Dea are making a march for a top-four finish, as they’ve turned around their season after a dreadful start. They are now in seventh, where they finished last season. They won’t settle for a repeat, they’ll be looking to match their fourth-place finish in 2017. That was the last time that fourth in Serie A didn’t land a Champions League place. This time around, they have an eye on joining Juventus in Europe’s biggest competition.
Meanwhile, Juve have ambitions of winning the Champions League this term. They moved 11 points clear at the top of Serie A over the weekend, winning 2-1 at Lazio in a close game. The champions needed a late rally to avoid losing their unbeaten record, but they came out of the weekend as the big winners. They’ll want to cap off a great week by securing a win in the Coppa Italia, as they look to retain their trophy. They’ve got a seven-match winning streak in this competition, dating back to the 2017 final. Will that continue here?
Atalanta are a tricky side to visit, as they proved in their 2-2 draw with Juve in December. The Old Lady have drawn three of their last four at this ground, while they’ve scored at least twice in 10 of their last 12 meetings with la Dea in all competitions. It’s tough to see Juve failing in front of goal here, after finding the net in their last 11 matches in this competition. They’ve scored in every match they’ve played in this term, so will the champions push the Atalanta defence?
The visitors should concern themselves with Atalanta’s attack, more than their defence. The hosts have conceded to every top six side they’ve met this term. However, the home side have scored 18 times in their last five matches, including two against Juve. We expect them to find the net here, as they look to take their form into the cup. We’re backing both teams to score in this clash, along with a 1-1 draw.
Atalanta Team News:
Marco Varnier is recovering from an ACL injury, but he’s the only player sidelined for the club ahead of this clash.
Juventus Team News:
The visitors are likely to make a few changes for this cup tie, while Mario Mandzukic, Andrea Barzagli and Juan Cuadrado are ruled out.
