Juventus head into their game against Atalanta on Monday having already sealed the league title, courtesy of AS Roma's shock 4-1 defeat to Catania on Sunday. It is a deserved title on the end of an excellent campaign with Juventus losing only twice in Serie A all season. Indeed, their disappointments have been in their cup exits; meekly exiting the Champions League to Galatasaray at the group stage, losing to Roma in the Coppa Italia before losing the chance to play a Europa League final in their own stadium with a flat performance against Benfica.
Atalanta were in the race for Europa League qualification until a poor run of recent results put that dream firmly out of reach. It is a disappointing end to the season for Atalanta after six consecutive wins in March put them in a strong position, but they now sit five points from the all-important sixth place after a run of four matches without a win. The Nerazzurri still have to play AC Milan who sit directly above them, only three points away, so a top-half finish is still not out of reach, which would mark a good season after finishing 15th last year.
Juventus are almost free of injury worries for their scudetto celebration; only Andrea Barzagli is a doubt. Atalanta on the other hand, have myriad woes with Luca Cigarini suspended, Marko Livaja out and big question marks hanging over Marcelo Estigarribia and Guglielmo Stendardo.
