Juventus vs AtalantaSerie A, KO: 17:00 Nov 27, 2021, Allianz Stadium
Juventus are attempting to build some momentum as they host Atalanta in an Italian Serie A fixture on Saturday. Atalanta have shown some good form lately and are often dangerous opponents but the Turin club's experience should give them the edge here.
Juventus are coming off their first Champions League defeat of the season as they were beaten 4-0 by Chelsea on Wednesday. It was their heaviest ever loss in the competition as they proved to be no match for the reigning champions.
Manager Massimiliano Allegri will be keen to put that result behind him and turn his attention to their recent resurgence in Serie A. They are now just four points off the top four having won their last two matches, including a 2-0 victory at Lazio last time out.
Juventus have also impressed in front of their fans lately, winning six of their last seven home matches across all competitions. However, they remain unconvincing at the back and have conceded in four of their last six home matches.
Atalanta travel to Juventus off the back off a 3-3 draw with Young Boys in the Champions League. They led twice through Duvan Zapata and Jose Palomino but ultimately needed a late effort from Luis Muriel to salvage a share of the spoils.
The result means Atalanta are now unbeaten in their last seven matches across all competitions, although only two of those fixtures have been wins. They earned a 5-2 victory over Spezia in their previous Serie A fixture and are currently fourth in Serie A.
Despite showing some good form lately, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men continue to struggle defensively. They are without a clean sheet in their last five matches, conceding 10 goals in that run.
