Storylines

Juve: The Bianconeri are eighth coming into this weekend with 21 points from a possible 39. Allegri's men won last time out against Lazio while Leonardo Bonucci and Paulo Dybala lead the team for goals with three apiece. Juve have won three times, lost twice, and drawn once at home this campaign. After their UEFA Champions League thrashing against Chelsea, they need a response.

Atalanta:

Gian Piero Gasperini's men are unbeaten in six Serie A games and are yet to lose on the road this term. The Orobici have not tasted domestic defeat away from Gewiss Stadium in 12 matches when Inter Milan beat them back in March. Last time out, Atalanta beat Spezia 5-2 and the last meeting with Juve was a 1-0 win courtesy of a late Ruslan Malinovskyi strike. La Dea are unbeaten in three against their Turin hosts and Duva Zapata has scored eight times already this season which is more than Bonucci and Dybala combined.

Prediction

Allegri's woes to continue as Gasperini's men keep up the pressure on the top two. The Vecchia Signora really need to win this one but that should play straight into their visitors' hands. Pick: Juve 1-2 Atalanta.
