Atalanta vs Juventus in Serie A: Head to Head Statistics, LIVE Streaming Link, teams stats up, results, Date, Time, Watch Live, Points Table
Top-four rivals Atalanta BC and Juventus meet in a crucial clash on Sunday, with three points and a potential Champions League return at stake in Bergamo.
The pair – who both exited Europe at the last-16 stage this term – now convene in Serie A ahead of their Coppa Italia Final next month, when La Dea will play Juve at the iconic San Siro.
Currently fourth in the Serie A standings – still only two points ahead of fifth-placed Napoli despite some outstanding form – Atalanta now faces one of their toughest tests in the race for a place at Europe’s top table, where they wish to dine for an unprecedented third year in a row.
While Colombian marksman Zapata has joined top-scoring compatriot Luis Muriel in returning to his lethal penalty-box ways – and has netted seven times in his previous eight games against Juventus – La Dea’s Ukrainian creator Ruslan Malinovskyi has now provided five assists in his last three appearances.
While Juventus have now effectively abdicated their long-held title to Inter, they remain embroiled in a desperate battle for Champions League football and must keep their foot on the gas as they travel to Lombardy.
On Sunday, they face a side whom they have beaten just once in their last six games across all competitions, as the gap between two clubs of very different stature has continued to narrow.
