AMPONTOONS.COM- The race for the Serie A title is over after Napoli lifted the Scudetto this week, but the race for a Champions League place gets tougher towards the end of the Serie A season.
After Lazio’s match against Milan, the next one is Atalanta’s against Juventus, also decisive for determining the first four places in Serie A.
This match played a key role in the race to the last three Champions League places for the Serie A competition.
Juventus have won just one of their last 5 Serie A matches beating Lecce last Wednesday.
However, it didn’t get any easier for fifth-placed Atalanta.
Atalanta hosts are unbeaten in their last six league games against Juventus.
Juventus returned to the opening four games having dropped from seventh to third following a decision by Italy’s top sporting body in April to overturn a 15-point penalty.
However, the Turinese have managed just one win in their last five league games while Atalanta have won five of their last seven games.
Juve are struggling to score away, having only scored four goals in their last five league games.
Striker Moise Kean will be out with a muscle problem, so Juventus are likely to pin their hopes on Dusan Vlahovic who scores his first Serie A goal since early February in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Lecce.
Atalanta may have to do without Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund, still struggling with a muscle problem that forced him to be replaced before the 3-2 draw against Spezia.
The other match on Sunday will be Turin-Monza,
Serie A champions Napoli will face Fiorentina, while Lecce will host Hellas Verona. (Tribnews/mba)
