Atalanta vs Juventus Betting Tips

  • Both Teams To Score @ 10/11
  • Atalanta Or Draw and Under 2.5 Goals @ 11/10 via #PickYour Punt

Often snubbed and considered, by the big clubs, no more than a consolation, the Coppa Italia has a profoundly different meaning for two teams that will contest it this Wednesday.

Atalanta see it as the first target of a season that from excellent could become unforgivable, if, after securing a place in next year’s Champions League, they’ll also manage to win the Europa League on 29 May.

Juventus, although not the favourite, are the ones under more pressure.

Their campaign has been underwhelming, to say the least, and the results’ downward trend that started in February alarming.

It is undisputable that Juve’s performances have been well below the expected level, especially considering their absence from European competitions.

Therefore, even a success against Atalanta, who look way ahead of the Bianconeri physically and mentally, would not be sufficient to consider the season a good one.

And probably not enough to save manager Massimiliano Allegri’s job.

But, after four trophy-less years, winning in Rome would at least help the Turin club to plan their next moves with much needed serenity.

On Sunday, Juve side were uncapable of beating, at home, bottom of the table Salernitana. The Bianconeri, as often happened so this season, huffed and puffed without a clear strategy.

Luck was certainly not on their side (they hit the woodwork three times), but in the end they needed a stoppage time goal from Rabiot to avoid an embarrassment of historical proportions.

Juventus have gained only 15 points in the last 15 Serie A games, drawing all the last five.

Since the end of January, the Bianconeri have won only three of the 17 games they played in all competitions.

In the same period, Atalanta have won 12 times and have achieved twice as many points (30) in Serie A than their cup final opponents.

Three days after having brushed aside Olympique Marseille in the Europa League, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men produced another majestic performance against Roma.

Atalanta dominated for over 70 minutes and should have scored at least four goals.

In the end the 2-1 win saw them consolidating the fifth spot and handed Bologna and Juventus the mathematical qualification to next season’s Champions League.

A gift that, given its current form, the ‘Old Lady’ must have been more than grateful for.

Team News:

The Bergamaschi will be without their man, Gianluca Scamacca, who is suspended.

De Ketelaere, who scored a brace against Roma, will most likely act as a central striker, supported by Koopmeiners and Lookman. Kolasinac is still not available and should be replaced by Scalvini.

De Roon is also in contention to start as centre-back with Pasalic slotting in the middle.

Juventus are without one of their main men, playmaker Locatelli, also suspended. Miretti will take his place, with Cambiaso and Kostic playing as wing-backs. Yildiz's condition needs to be assessed as he is dealing with a severe trauma to his right shoulder. Chiesa or Milik will pair up with Vlahovic up front.

It pays almost the same to back Atalanta to win in 90 minutes (8/5) or Juventus (13/8). The Orobici have won the Coppa Italia just once, in 1963, and have lost the last four finals (1987, 1996, 2019 and 2021).

The Coppa Italia 2021 was in fact Juventus’ last silverware thanks to a 2-1 victory (goals from Kulusevski, Malinovski and Chiesa) against Gian Piero Gasperini’s side.

The Bianconeri have won the trophy fourteen times, five more than Inter and Roma.

Being this a final the draw (odds 2/1) seems, as always, a good option. Furthermore, Atalanta and Juventus have shared the points in both occasions this season, 0-0 in Bergamo and 2-2 in Turin.

Massimiliano Allegri could become the first coach in history to win the Coppa Italia five times, equalling Sven-Göran Eriksson and Roberto Mancini records. Gian Piero Gasperini could become the "oldest" coach to win the Italian Cup: 66 years and 109 days on the day of the match.

Low odds for Under 2.5 Goals (4/7) as Juventus have only scored four goals in the last six games in all competitions. On the other hand, Atalanta have only kept two clean sheets in the last nine and Over 2.5 Goals pays 5/4.

Both Teams To Score @ 10/11

No doubt that Atalanta are the most confident and in form of the two sides, but Juventus and in particular, his manager, Massimiliano Allegri, experience in playing finals can’t be overlooked.

Juventus haven’t scored much lately but deserved to win two of the recent games, against AC Milan and Roma, that ended in a draw.

Atalanta have kept no clean sheets in this competition, but three of their players have already been involved in at least 22 goals in Serie A (De Keteleare, Scamacca and Koopmeiners). Scamacca, nine goals in the last 12, will be a big miss for Gasperini, but Lookman and Toure appear in good form.

Atalanta Or Draw and Under 2.5 Goals @ 11/10 via #PickYour Punt

It’s hard to back Juventus considering their recent poor record.

Atalanta have hit form at the right time of the season and have consistently played better than the Bianconeri during this campaign.

Being Juventus last chance to save their season it’s unlikely the game will be very open, so it’s worth considering it might well go to extra-time or beyond.
