Our football match prediction:
Despite being regarded as favourites to win Sunday’s football match against Genoa, Juventus suffered a 3-1 loss to the Rossoblu at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. The Bianconeri are eager to return to winning ways in the Serie A and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash against the Orobici. Atalanta suit Juventus and seeing that the title holders are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Max Allegri’s troops are going to keep their 100% record at their Juventus Stadium intact. Atalanta are on a six-game winning run in the Italian top flight, but considering that they were beaten by Juve in previous 12 meetings between the two teams, there is every chance the visitors will return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in the Serie A the Italian giants recorded a 2-0 win over Orobici, with Lemina and Barzagli scoring for Max Allegri’s team.
