How to watch Juventus vs Atalanta on TV

3

Juventus will host Serie A’s longtime overachiever Atalanta at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Although Atalanta have consistently worked on a salary that ranks in the bottom half of the division, Atalanta have finished as Italy’s third best team in each of the last three seasons and enter this weekend’s matches in the Champions League places.

Juventus is one of only two teams that has accumulated more points in Italy’s highest league since the summer of 2018 than its brave opponents, but after a sad start to the ongoing campaign, Atalanta is behind four league positions and as many points.

Juventus appear to be physically unharmed from their Champions League outings in the middle of the week, but the mental shock of a 4-0 knockout from Chelsea could take longer to shake off.

Danilo was not as lucky in Juve’s latest Serie A trip, he limped after a quarter with a partial tear in his left adductor, which meant that the Brazilian national team player was out for about two months.

Defense colleague Giorgio Chiellini (Achilles) is also set for a long absence, although Mattia De Sciglio is approaching a return after a problem with the hamstring. Both Federico Bernardeschi and Aaron Ramsey returned from international service this month with niggles expected to rule them out for this weekend’s match.

Davide Zappacosta was carried off the pitch in Atalanta’s six-goal thriller away against Swiss Young Boys on Tuesday. The 29-year-old’s blow to the ankle is added to a list of injuries that had graciously begun to decrease recently.

After 21-year-old midfielder Matteo Lovato, Zappacosta will be the latest defender to be snatched away from Gian Piero Gasperini due to injury. Atalanta’s totemic tactics, however, hinted at a potential return for left-back Robin Gosens on Saturday, with his colleague Hans Hateboer nearing the end of a tumultuous recovery period.

Juventus (4-4-2): Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Sandro; Chiesa, Locatelli, Arthur, McKennie; Dybala, Morata

Atalanta (3-4-2-1): Russo; Toloi, Demiral, Palomino; Maehle, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Ilicic, Pasalic; Zapata

Atalanta may have taken a 1-0 victory in the last meeting between these two sides, but the story of this match is strongly in favor of Juve. Ruslan Malinovskiy’s rejected shot in the 87th minute gave La Dea’s first Serie A victory against Juventus since Atalanta beat a Bianconeri team with Zinedine Zidane in 2001.

In total, Atalanta have only taken 12 wins from the 120 league matches in this match. Juve’s dominance is even more inflated at home; despite Atalanta taking a point on each of their last three league visits to the black and white part of Turin, Atalanta have won just four times away against Juventus in their history – their most recent victory came back in 1989, when only one member of their current squad was alive.

Four losses already this semester may well have shattered Juve’s hopes for the title, but the Champions League qualifier is far from certain for the team that is eighth after more than a third of the season. With Inter moving closer to the top two in Naples and Milan, fourth-placed Atalanta serve as a remarkable barrier for Bianconeri in this regard.

This may be Atalanta’s best start to a Serie A season under Gasperini, but La Dea’s underlying figures point to a dropout at both ends of the pitch. Juventus is hardly a portrait of glowing texture itself, but with the sting of midweek defeat still fresh, it can take away its future visitors.

Prediction: Juventus 1-1 Atalanta
