Top-four contenders Atalanta and Juventus square off at the Gewiss Stadium on Sunday evening, with the two sides separated by just one point in the Serie A table.
After a mixed start to the new league campaign, with defeats away to Frosinone and Fiorentina, Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta seem to be building a head of steam, with a narrow 1-0 victory over Hellas Verona last time out making it three wins in a row across all competitions, including a 2-0 Europa League group stage victory over Rakow Czestochowa 2-0 at the Gewiss Stadium last midweek.
However, La Dea's top-four credential will be put to the test when Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus prepares to come to town.
Juventus also secured a 1-0 win in midweek thanks to a close range finish from Arkadiusz Milik against high-flying Lecce, which helped the Old Lady climb up into second place in the Serie A table.
That narrow victory came after a calamitous 4-2 loss to Sassuolo last week, so the Bianconeri are not in great form, but they are grinding out results at the moment.

Team news & squads
Atalanta team news
La Dea boss Gian Piero Gasperini may look to rotate heavily after the game against Verona on Wednesday. However, with both of their major summer signings, Gianluca Scamacca and El Bilal Toure, sidelined for the foreseeable future through various injury problems, he doesn't have the luxury of making wholesale changes for this visit of Juventus.
Teun Koopmeiners, who scored the first-half goal to settle a nervy affair at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi in midweek, could continue in an advanced playmaker role behind the strike-partnership of Ademola Lookman and Milan loanee Charles De Ketelaere. Mario Pasalic and Luis Muriel are viable alternatives, but may have to contend with a substitute role here.
Atalanta possible XI: Musso; Toloi, Scalvini, Kolasinac; Zappacosta, De Roon, Ederson, Ruggeri; Lookman, Koopmeiners; De Ketelaere
