Three games within eight days and these are three delicate and important matches for Atalanta, who want to remain in the table’s top spots. Juventus visit the Gewiss Stadium on Sunday at 15 CEST and the Nerazzurri will then travel to the Olimpico to face Roma in the midweek round (the tie is scheduled for Thursday 22 April at 18.30 CEST). Finally, they will face Bologna on Sunday 25 April in Bergamo (kick-off at 20.45 CEST).

Let’s go in order and let’s start from the clash against the reigning Italian champions who Atalanta will then meet again, for the third time this season, next May 19th in the Coppa Italia final in Reggio Emilia.

“It’s a very important match – said the Atalanta defender Rafael Toloi – a difficult match. Juventus are in form and are playing well. It is also an opportunity for us to measure ourselves against the team we’ll face also in the Coppa Italia final. We’ll have to produce a strong display, win precious points for that goal we want to achieve”.

It ended 1-1 in the reverse fixture at the Allianz Stadium thanks to the awesome equaliser scored by Remo Freuler.

“Juventus have a lot of quality players and some dangerous forwards  – Toloi concluded -. We’ll have to defend well and play technically well to leave them as little space as possible. We’ll have to play our game as usual”.
