Prediction and odds for the game: Juventus (6/5) vs Atalanta (9/4)
We are backing the away win
When: Saturday 27 November 2021, Kick-off 17:00
Where: The Allianz Stadium
On Saturday evening, Juventus and Atalanta face off at the Allianz Stadium, in a massive Serie A game, especially for the visitor’s chances of a return to the Champions League spots.
The Bianconeri had built up some positivity after three straight wins in all competitions. However, Max Allegri’s team were brought back down to earth in midweek, as they suffered a 4-0 hammering at Premier League leaders Chelsea in the Champions League. The result was a reminder that there are still major problems for Allegri to solve.
The team from Turin will have to hope that back-to-back wins and clean sheets against Fiorentina and Lazio in their last two Serie A games will be enough momentum to win this game.
In truth, Juventus have had a mixed season in the Italian top-flight. A recent record of just two wins in their previous five Serie A outings is not going to see the Bianconeri climb back into the top-four.
At this present moment in time, the old lady are four points behind Atalanta, who are in the final qualification berth for next season’s Champions League.
The Nerazzurri are unbeaten in their previous seven games in all competitions. Last time out they drew 3-3 with Young Boys, a result that did not help their chances of making the group stages of the Champions League.
The visitors have drawn too many games of late, as four of their previous seven competitive matches have finished all square. Despite the draws, Atalanta have remained prolific in front of goal of late, scoring at least two goals in their last six matches in all competitions.
Colombian international striker Duvan Zapata has been in good form of late, scoring in his last six appearances for the Nerazzurri in all competitions. He will certainly test that Juventus backline.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s team have a good recent record in Serie A, as they are unbeaten in six matches in the Italian top-flight while recording four wins. Unsurprisingly, considering their eye for goal, the visitors have scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine matches in Serie A.
The visitors are also 12 matches unbeaten on their travels in the Italian top-flight, having recorded an impressive nine wins.
This will be a big test of Juventus’ recent good league form. However, we fancy Atalanta to record a rare win over the Bianconeri. The home team’s confidence still seems fragile and Gasperini’s team are just so dangerous in attack. The other bet that we are backing is over 3.5 goals, as the visitors are just so potent in attack, while also being generous in defence.
Our Tips: We are backing the away win at odds of 9/4 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 9/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
