With Inter looking clear in the race for the title interest switches to the battle for top four and Atalanta and Juventus are two of the teams at the centre of that.

Atalanta Preview – Can Atalanta make it five successive wins and go above their opponents?

This campaign still has the potential of being one of Atalanta’s best as they look to finish in the top four to bring them a third consecutive season in the Champions League, as well as the opportunity to win the Coppa Italia – a competition where they will face Juventus in a month’s time. All attention is on this match and the league games between now and that showpiece occasion, however.

Atalanta are fourth coming into this weekend’s round of fixtures – two points clear of fifth place Napoli and with the chance to go above their opponents and perhaps even into second spot depending on Milan’s result. That’s how tight and competitive the race for the top four is. There promises to be a lot of twists and turns to come.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Saturday 17 April)

Goals are synonymous with this Atalanta team and they are the top scorers in Serie A with 71 goals. The fact they have scored more than the runaway leaders shows you how dynamic their attack is and we know Gian Piero Gasperini is not going to change his approach to the game.

Atalanta have won their last four and will see this as a huge opportunity to get another three points and give themselves an advantage heading into the final seven games of the season.

Juventus Preview – Will Juve show their mettle and keep their advantage in the race for a Champions League spot?

It’s an unfamiliar feeling for Juventus as they know this will be the first season in a decade where they won’t end it as champions of Italy. The appointment of Andrea Pirlo in the summer has not brought continued and immediate success for the club but he looks set to be given another opportunity beyond this campaign. Like Atalanta, Juve can still end the season with Champions League qualification and a trophy.

If they are to do either or both of those then these are the games they need to be taken something from. Juve have won their last two but it’s just one win in their last four away games in the league.

Much has been made of Cristiano Ronaldo’s involvements at Juventus and whilst he tops the scoring charts with 25 goals, there is a growing opinion that his inclusion is to the detriment of the team. It will be interesting to see what the end of the season brings for the future for the Portuguese forward.

Whilst he is still here there is no doubting his importance to the team in terms of goals. The next highest scorer is Alvaro Morato on eight.

Atalanta vs Juventus Betting Advice

The next time these teams meet will be for the Coppa Italia but for financial reasons this is arguably the more important of the two fixtures. A win for either would be a big step towards the Champions League and the rewards that brings. It’s a much for the visitors considering their wage bill whilst Atalanta have had a taste of it in the last couple of years.

There has been little between the two in recent meetings with four of the last six games ending in draws.

 

Key Facts – Atalanta vs Juventus Betting Tip

  • Atalanta remain the entertainers in Italy, they’re the highest scorers in Serie A with 71 goals
  • Juventus have won just six away from home all season – the lowest of any club in the top six
  • There have been four draws in the last six games between these tw0 (1-1 earlier in the season)

 

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see this as another share of the points but I’m backing Atalanta to win here. They are in excellent form coming into it and although Juventus have lost just twice on their travels this season there is much more vulnerability about them.
