On the eve of the meeting with Juventus, the team played three weekly matches and surprisingly won them all without conceding. First, Atalanta kicked off the Europa League by outplaying Poland's Raków 2:0 on their home field. Then, the Bergamaschi were stronger than the Cagliari on their field with the same score. And last Wednesday, Atalanta extended their winning streak with a 1:0 away win over Verna.
The Bergamaschi have indeed become a more balanced team than before, and in five of the seven matches of the new season, all tournaments played on zero. However, there are still some failures. At the start of the championship, Atalanta lost 1:2 to Frosinone and 2:3 to Fiorentina.
The team also recently failed, losing away to Sassuolo - 2:4. Inter also lost to Sassuolo (1:2) on their field, and Juventus itself on Tuesday won over Lecce - 1:0. Arkadiusz Milik scored the only goal midway through the second half, replacing Dusan Vlahovic in the starting lineup.
Juventus, taking advantage of Inter's misfire, came within two points of the Nerazzurri and Milan, who share first place with Inter. The Turin side, of course, cannot be written off from the Scudetto race this season, given Juventus' lack of European competition.
Expert Betting Tips
Ahead of the start of the season, Atalanta and Juventus played a friendly match that ended in a zero draw. The upcoming encounter may follow a similar scenario, given that the Bergamaschi have noticeably added to their defense, while Juventus traditionally plays low-scoring games away. Yes, it turned out differently in the match against Sassuolo, but the result was primarily due to mistakes by Wojciech Szczęsny and Federico Gatti. The Bianconeri are unlikely to make similar mistakes again, so there is every reason to expect a low-scoring performance.
In addition, we believe that Juve will not lose in the upcoming match - Atalanta will play again next week in the Europa League, which requires squad rotation. At the same time, Juventus has no such need this season and can be fully focused on domestic competitions.
