Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Gewiss Stadium will be the centre of attention when Atalanta and Juventus go head to head in the Serie A round 7. The Orobici are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions and they are surely capable of matching “The Old Lady” in front of home fans. Fit-again defender Hans Hateboer is pushing for a start, while both Gianluca Scamacca and El Bilal Toure miss out with injuries. Gianpiero Gasperini is likely to stick to the 3-4-2-1 formation.
The Bianconeri, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 4-2 loss to Sassuolo, with the team beating Lecce thanks to Arkadiusz Milik’s goal, but their display in the midweek triumph was anything but good. As Atalanta have found their form of late, we predict that Juve are going to return to Torino empty-handed. Dusan Vlahovic is pushing for a start as well as his compatriot Filip Kostic, whereas Paul Pogba misses out through suspension. The likes of Moise Keane, Alex Sandro, and Mattia De Sciglio are out of contention with injuries.
