JUV vs ATN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The mighty Juventus travel to Bergamo, Lombardy to take on Atalanta at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia in the Serie A as they aim for their ninth straight away win in the league, on Boxing day (IST).
The hosts are struggling for consistency this season. They slipped down to ninth in the Serie A table after losing 3-1 away to Genoa at the weekend. Things could turn nastier and are expected to as they face Juventus in their next match and also, AS Roma are sitting below them which should not be the case after this round of fixture.
But that’s not the complete picture in the Serie A and not everything is doom and gloom for the Orobici. Because the table is too tight at the moment and the teams lying as low as 12th find themselves only six points away from the Champions League places. So everything could change and may look brighter if Atalanta manage to win or at least earn a precious point against the rampant reigning Italian Champions.
For Juventus, it’s all about turning up for the match. They have too much potency for the most teams in the Serie. They are carrying that imperious aura with themselves which may down as one of the most dominant in the top-flight Italian football. After all, seven straight domestic titles are not the story which many teams can write in the top-five European leagues.
At the moment, the all-conquering, the reigning Serie A champions sit atop the table, eight points away from the 2nd placed Napoli. They remain unbeaten in the league as well. And if you look past Carlo Ancelotti’s team, Inter Milan are 3rd and are a massive 16 points further down in the table. So the Nerazzurri are definitely out of the title race, making it a two-horse race if it is the case.
Juventus’ relentless domestic dominance and the two Champions League final appearance means the Old Lady are now one of the biggest names in the world football. Now they can tempt superstar talents towards the Juventus Stadium. The acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid revealed the growing power of the Old Lady.

JUV vs ATN Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
It’s a potential banana skin for Juve but don’t expect the visitors to slip.
Ronaldo is a doubt. Not because of any injury or a knock but there are reports he may be given an off during the festive period.
Mandzukic is our captain, with Dybala playing behind him as the vice-captain of our team.
Not many changes here but Zapata is our vice-captain. Gomez has come in as a playmaker while Bentancur repalcing Matuidi in the Juve’s middle.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
The only way Atalanta can hope to get anything out of the match is to tighten up at the back. They have conceded too many goals this season and any blip at the back can kill the game long before the hosts hope to get any hold in the match.
However, an away win is all we can see.
