Atalanta and Juventus meet at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, in a match for the 13th round of Serie A. In this stadium, the history of direct confrontations is favorable to the visiting team, which records 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss in the last 6 games. However, the last time these two teams played a game at this stadium was on 30-01-2019, for Coppa Italia, which ended the Atalanta victory by (3-0). The goals of the match were scored by T. Castagne (37 ‘) and D. Zapata (39’ e 86 ‘) for Atalanta. Despite being a match between 5th and 1st of the table, it is actually a confrontation between the 13th ranked in home games and the 3rd as a visitor.
After 6 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses, the home team is currently in 5th position, with 22 points won. In their last game, they tied with Sampdoria out by (0‑0), after in the previous match they lost by (0‑2) at home, in a match against Cagliari. Interestingly, this is a team that has conquered more positive results outside than in its stadium, since it conquered 15 points as a visitor and only 7 in its stadium. For the championship, Atalanta conquered 7 points in 15 possible, after 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the last 5 games he played in his stadium. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 games, so he has not presented great defensive strength, but his attack has scored regularly, since he scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 12 games in the competition, he suffered the first goal 6 times, but got the comeback in 2.
Atalanta heads to this match after a goalless draw at Sampdoria. The local club generally plays in a 5-3-2 tactical system, favoring a more defensive playing style, attacking through the side aisles. Atalanta is a team that likes to play in the midfield with the goal of trying to surprise their opponents through counterattack. When you invest in the offensive process, you generally do so through the left aisle to take advantage of the depth that Castagne offers. For this match, coach Gian Piero Gasperini will not be able to count on Ruslan Malinovskyi and Josip Ilicic for being punished.
The visiting team is currently in 1st position, with 32 points won, after 10 wins and 2 draws. In the penultimate match, he won out against Torino by (0-1). In the last match, he won at home against Milan by (1‑0). This is a team little affected by the home factor, since it conquered similar results at home and abroad.
For this competition, he did not lose any of the last 6 away matches. His attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 9 of the last 10 games for this competition. This is a team that usually does not feel difficult to open the scoring: he scored the first goal in 9 of the last 12 games for Serie A, of these 9 he came to the break in advantage in 3 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 ‘in 8. In the last 20 home games for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: he suffered 8 of his 21 goals between minutes (76′ ‑ 90’).
Juventus is heading for this motivated round after a 1-0 victory at home against Milan: Dybala, in minute 77, scored the only goal of the game. Contrary to the “enemy” of this match, the visiting club generally plays with a 4-4-2 tactical design, using two frontline players: Cristiano Ronaldo and Higuaín. The center of the field is expected to be occupied by Matuidi, Pjanic, Bernardeschi and Bentancur. The visiting coach may not count on Marko Pjaca and Giorgio Chiellini for being injured.
