Juventus will be hoping to get the march towards the Serie A title back on track after an inexplicable stumble against AC Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday.
Despite the midweek loss against Milan, Juve are still seven points clear of second-place Lazio, who also lost their second game on the trot on away at relegation-threatened Lecce, in a game that was playing concurrently to the Seria A derby.
The Old Lady are at the summit of the Serie A with 75 points. Following that bitter loss, there is no doubt coach Sarri will want to get the wins they need to seal the title at the earliest opportunity as any other slip-ups will blow open the race.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 26th goal of the season in that loss. His strike partner Dybala will be back for this game after serving a one-match suspension.
Atalanta’s incredible season continued with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Sampdoria. It took a Sampdoria red card and 75 minutes for high-flying Atalanta to get their breakthrough in that game and once they did there was only going to be one outcome.
The Orobici have now won 13 straight games in all competitions and even more impressively kept a clean sheet in their last three straight wins.
They are third in the Serie A on 66 points, two points clear of 3rd placed Inter and two behind 2nd placed Lazio.
On current form, these are the two best teams in the division. Juventus have won 8 of their last 10 league games while Atalanta have done one better with 9 wins and a draw in their last 10 league games. They have both been scoring goals for fun. Juve have scored 15 goals in the 5 games they have played after the resumption of the league while Sampdoria have scored 11 while winning all 5 games. We are likely to see an open-ended game as both of these teams possess potent attacking lineups. Sampdoria lead the league in goals scored and they will definitely have a go at Juventus. Bwin betting app have offered both teams to score option at a price of 1.50 and we are backing it as our first betting tip for this game.
Juventus were left with an egg on the face following their capitulation against AC Milan. They took a 2-0 lead but blew it away after conceding 4 goals in the last half hour of the game. That was more than they had conceded in their previous ten games combined. They were lucky Lazio also lost otherwise their seven-point cushion could easily have been whittled down to four coming into this game. They won the reverse game 3-1 at Sampdoria but they will be playing a vastly improved outfit. They are unbeaten in Turin this season with 14 wins and a draw in their 15 home games. We are backing a Juventus Win Draw No Bet @ 1.50 as well with Bwin as our final betting tip for this encounter.
