Juventus was badly defeated by Milan in the last round 2-4, even though they had a comfortable lead of 2-0. The hosts are still placed on 1st place but it is obvious that the team needs improvement in all areas. The coach Mauricio Sari will have at his disposal all key players. Ronaldo & company should do all it takes to prove that they are the real title contenders this season.
An immense respect for the work of Gianpaulo Gasperini. The Italian has managed to transform Atalanta from a team struggling to fight for top 4 to a real title contender. Although the team has 9 points less than Juventus, Atalanta scored 20 goals more and it is the team in the most perfect recent form. Since the renewal of Seria A, Atalanta recorded 6 consecutive wins as they did not concede any goals in the last 3 matches. The total goal-difference for the last 6 games is 15-5!!!
Juventus has some weaknesses in defence. They may win this match but they are going to concede for sure. Atalanta is aiming to get as close as possible to Juve, it would be prestigious to finish just behind them in the league table.
