Competition: Serie A
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport
In a Serie A showdown that could prove to be another action-packed affair on Sunday lunchtime, Atalanta will welcome Juventus to the Gewiss Stadium.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another eye-catching display earlier in the week as they claimed a 3-2 victory at home against Spezia, Atalanta now have their sights firmly set on clinching a Champions League return this season. Only continuing to shine since returning from March’s international break, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have won each of their last three Serie A appearances. With their recent flurry highlighted by a stellar 3-1 romp at home against Roma on April 24th, La Dea should be smelling the chance to make another top-flight statement here. Losing just one of their last seven Serie A outings – a run that stems back to March 11th, Atalanta have also found quite the clinical edge in the final third. Notching eight goals on their three-match winning run, it should also be noted that Gasperini’s men have bagged a trio of strikes in back-to-back appearances at the Gewiss Stadium.
As for the visitors, while Juventus might have made a crucial return to winning ways earlier in the week, the Italian giants have continued to show plenty of domestic issues on either side of March’s international break. Although the Old Lady might have booked their Europa League semi-final spot last month, Massimiliano Allegri’s men have won just a pair of their last nine straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems back to April 1st. Showing some extended defensive issues and with just a single clean sheet to their name over the past five weeks, Juventus will be more than aware that they face a tough challenge when they travel to the Gewiss Stadium on Sunday lunchtime. With the two sides playing out a stunning 3-3 draw when they met for their reverse Serie A showdown on January 22nd, neutrals could be treated to another thriller this weekend.
