Juventus will host Atalanta in one of the standout fixtures of Serie A Matchday 19 on Sunday evening at the Allianz Stadium but both teams go into this match on the back of contrasting results from the previous weekend of league action.
The Bianconeri are third in the Serie A table with 37 points, but they had slipped from second place after Napoli demolished them 5-1 at the Stadio Diego Maradona. Meanwhile, La Dea are equal fifth with Lazio and AS Roma on 34 points, and they produced one of their greatest performances in the last round, smashing Salernitana 8-2.
A victory would be vital for both sides as they both hold European aspirations. However, a win for Atalanta would bring them level with Juventus and create a battle for the Champions League spots.
