We are heading to the Allianz Stadium where Juventus hosts Atalanta in a match from the Serie A. This is a game from the 19th round of the competition. Let’s take a look in our preview.
Juventus return in the Serie A after the horrific 1-5 loss against Napoli last weekend. The Bianconeri had the chance to move closer to the leader but they conceded five goals instead. Angel Di Maria scored for Juve, but Napoli were better in every aspect of the game.
The head coach Massmiliano Allegri could make some changes in the line-up now. Moise Kean is an option for the attack while Leandro Paredes could start in midfield. Fabio Miretti is another option the manager could pick from his bench.
What Allegri must do now is bring back the confidence in his squad. For Juventus it was very difficult to accept such a defeat. The Old Lady is now third in the standings with 37 points – 10 points behind Napoli.
Atalanta on the other hand scored 13 goals in their last two matches – 8 against Salernitana in the Serie A and 5 against Spezia for the Coppa Italia. It comes to show us that La Dea are in a pretty good shape at the moment. They are going to be a difficult opponent for Juventus.
The Nigerian international Ademola Lookman is having a pretty good season so far. The African striker has scored 9 Serie A goals – more than any other player in the squad. He’s one of the weapons in Gian Piero Gasperini’s arsenal – no wonder Atalanta score so many goals in their matches.
That’s the preview for the Serie A clash between Juventus and Atalanta at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday. Can Juve bounce back after what’s happened against Napoli? Or maybe Atalanta will prove they are in an excellent shape?
