Juventus receives Atalanta at the Allianz Stadium this Sunday, January 22 at 8:45 p.m. as part of the 19th day of Serie A. Despite the particular climate, the bianconeri will have to do everything to win. Check out the full after game and likely lineups in this article.
Juventus must react after the humiliation suffered against Napoli last weekend. The bianconeri lost 5-1 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, a reaction is expected. This week the team of Massimiliano Allegri validated its ticket for the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia thanks to a goal from Moise Kean and a super gem from Federico Chiesa, who confirms his return.
However, the climate is particular. Indeed, Juventus were handed a 15-point penalty by the FIGC in the capital gains case, a decision which seems highly unfair as only one club was sanctioned. Following this sanction, the club lost many places in the standings and is now 10th with 22 points. A call has been made, but it will have to wait until April. In the meantime, you have to win all the matches and achieve a feat. Winning against Atalanta would be very impressive and would allow the team to gain confidence.
Atalanta is having a positive season. Indeed, Giampiero Gasperini’s men are currently 5th, just 6 points behind the leader. Their goal will be to finish in the top 4 in order to play the Champions League next season. Since the resumption of the season, they have drawn and won 3 games in a row. Stopping them in their momentum will not be easy, especially since they have just scored 13 goals in just 2 games.
A 3511 with Angel Di Maria in support of Moise Kean?
According to the latest rumours, Massimiliano Allegri should opt for a 3511. Wojciech Szczesny in goal, with the 100% Brazilian defense in front of him: Danilo Luiz, Gleison Bremer and Alex Sandro. As for a few matches matches, Weston McKennie should occupy the role of left piston. He also distributed a decisive pass in this position against Monza a few things ago. The other piston will be Filip Kostic. Manuel Locatelli will play regista, with Nicolo Fagioli and Adrien Rabiot at his side. Regarding the attack, Angel Di Maria will play in support of Moise Kean, scorer this week against Monza.
Federico Chiesa should still start on the bench, despite his magnificent goal against Monza, the Master surely wants to go gradually with him. In any case, he will be a precious asset during the match, he like the Englishman Samuel Iling-Junior.
