Sitting four points clear at the top of Serie A with a game in hand, it's clear that Juventus are the best team in Italy right now. Five successive title wins suggests they are the dominant force too and in reality - can anybody beat them across an entire season?
When it comes to one-off matches though, anything could happen. This is why the Coppa Italia isn't as nailed on for Juventus as the Serie A title is. They need to beat some big teams on the way and cannot afford an off day if they want to win this competition for the third year in a row.
The next task on their quest to making history in this regard is a home clash with Atalanta and as you'd expect, they are the comfortable favourites. The best odds you can get at the time are 4/11 with bet365
. It's a home banker.
After 29 domestic home wins in a row, it's pretty easy to see why. Teams simply don't come to the Juventus Stadium and get something. It's the definition of a fortress and Atalanta are unlikely to buck the trend.
Out at 8/1 with Ladbrokes
to be the first team to win at Juventus since August 2015, they have been rather inconsistent on the road in recent weeks. They are capable of scoring, but if things are going against them - they can leak goals.
Look at their last three away games. A 3-1 reverse to Juventus, a 0-0 draw with AC Milan and a 4-1 success at Chievo. They are a tough team to call.
Juventus are more predictable though and they should have too much quality for their opponents on Tuesday night. This is a competition they will take seriously and a long spell of possession in the first-half could decide the tie.
As for who is worth backing for goals - how can you ignore Gonzalo Higuain? He scored a brace on the team's return to action after the winter break and can make a key impact again in this Coppa Italia tie.
