Juventus vs. Atalanta: Preview and TV Schedule

Maurizio Lagana

Juventus' game against Atalanta on Monday night will be a victory parade, with the Old Lady having already sealed the scudetto.

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.
