Team News

  • Petkovic still has most of his roster available, so he has to pick one midfielder to start on the bench: Candreva should sit out at kick-off.
  • Gonzalez should take to the right side, with Hernanes and Mauri in the centre and Lulic on the left flank.
  • Dias won't take part in the match, and Ciani is ready to replace him in the centre of the defence.
  • Colantuono will be without three defenders and since Peluso moved to Juventus, he may have some difficulty in picking his XI.
  • Raimondi will be moved back to defence, so Schelotto could play on the right side of the midfield.
  • If, as widely reported, Schelotto is distracted by transfer talks with Internazionale, Giorgi is ready to take his spot.

Prediction

  • Lazio seem to be the only title challengers for Juventus at the minute, and will also meet the Bianconeri in the Coppa Italia semifinals. The Biancocelesti are currently the team that obtained the most points at home, where they won their last five matches.
  • On the other side, Atalanta lost their last four matches played away from Bergamo, and their position in the table has put them at risk of being involved in the relegation fight.
  • Expect the hosts to take control of the match, especially since most of Petkovic' players are available and he has plenty of option in midfield. Atalanta may be in a period of transition, since they sold Peluso and are selling Schelotto. The coach will have to work to make the new elements blend into the team without losing his playing style.
