Atalanta vs JuventusSerie A, KO: 19:45 Feb 13, 2022, Gewiss Stadium
Juventus will be looking to maintain their recent good form as they travel to Gewiss Stadium for a Serie fixture with Atalanta on Sunday.
Atalanta have been on a downward spiral in recent weeks having failed to secure a win in their last four matches across all competitions. That poor run culminated in a 3-2 home defeat to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia on Thursday.
That result was Atalanta’s second straight home defeat having been beaten 2-1 by struggling Cagliari in their previous Serie A fixture. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have slipped out of the Champions League places and are now two points behind fourth placed Juventus.
Strikers Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel have not been at their best lately as the team has struggled for goals.
While Atalanta’s campaign appears to be slowly unravelling, Juventus have been on a different trajectory. They have a two-point cushion in fourth place and are unbeaten in their last 10 Serie A matches.
Juventus warmed up for the trip to Bergamo with a 2-1 Coppa Italia victory over Sassuolo with Paulo Dybala opening the scoring. Their last Serie A fixture was a 2-0 win over Verona thanks to goals from new signings Dusan Vlahovic and Dennis Zakaria.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men have also impressed on their recent travels and are unbeaten in their last six away matches. They have claimed four wins in that run, including a 2-0 victory at Lazio and a 4-3 win at Roma.

Recent head to head
Atalanta earned a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture in November with Duvan Zapata getting the only goal. However, Juventus have claimed two wins from their last three visits to Bergamo, including a 2-1 victory in the most recent meeting at Gewiss Stadium.
