 Next Match: Atalanta vs Juventus

20 April 2008, 15:00

After Juve’s mid-week win against Parma, they now turn to Atalanta to try and continue their massive season. With Roma failing to take full points from Livorno today, Juventus would definitely try to do their best to put it all on Roma to do and battle it hard for second place. Roma’s slip-up today came as a total surprise for everyone as everyone was looking at a probable Inter slip-up on Sunday against Torino and then a close finish to the league. But now it seems that Inter can indeed practically wrap it up on Sunday instead.

Claudio Ranieri’s selection of players for tomorrow’s match are:

1 Buffon
2 Birindelli
5 Zebina
6 Zanetti
7 Salihamidzic
8 Camoranesi
10 Del Piero
11 Nedved
12 Belardi
17 Trezeguet
20 Palladino
21 Grygera
23 Nocerino
25 Stendardo
28 Molinaro
30 Tiago
31 Novembre
32 Marchionni
33 Legrottaglie
34 Pasquato

Sissoko is still out after his injury against Milan and we can thus see again a similar formation used against Parma with Palladino and Nocerino on the flanks and Camoranesi and Salihamidzic in centre midfield. Brazzo’s great form together with resurgent Palladino and Del Piero’s hopes for Euro 2008 will definitely put Juve one hand up against Atalanta. Juve will be also without Chiellini and Iaquinta. With Juventus therefore nearly secure of a Champions League qualifier, Juve flop Tiago can get some moments to shine if he wants to remain wearing the black and white strip next season.

Match Prediction

Atalanta vs Juve : 2-4

Both teams will have the ability to pose threats up front and some slick Juve defending can cause them to concede two goals but they have the ability to put some firepower up front and therefore I’m going for a 4-2 win for the Bianconeri.
