Bet of the day: Juve to beat Atalanta by exactly two goals in Serie A
Robbie Purves | 3 December 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Juventus have won the last 23 home games
- Atalanta haven’t beaten the Old Lady in 23 Serie A attempts, stretching back to 2001
- The Old Lady sit comfortably four points clear at the top of the Serie A table
Juve 10/3 to win by exactly two goals
After lifting five consecutive Serie A titles, Massimiliano Allegri’s outfit are out for a sixth and occupy the league’s top berth by four points. So we’ve picked them out for our latest bet of the day
Juventus welcome Atalanta to Turin and can come into the fixture with great confidence after winning their last 23 home games.
However, what makes Coral’s brilliant bet of the day so enticing is, out of the previous 14 meetings between the two, Juventus have won five of them by exactly two goals – making a 10/3 punt on the Old Lady to emulate this feat great value.
History favours league leaders
It doesn’t make pretty reading for La Dea fans, but Atalanta haven’t beaten the Old Lady in 23 Serie A attempts, stretching back to 2001.
Combine this with the fact that the Turin team have triumphed in the last 12 meetings, and you have the makings of a routine three points.
Croatia international Mario Mandzukic will take to the field today in fantastic form, after netting three in his last five outings.
However, not only will visiting Atalanta have to contain Mandzukic, but blockbusting summer signing Gonzalo Higuain – a player who scored 36 in 35 league run outs last season.
Allegri’s attacking riches should see them comfortably record a win and shut out Atalanta who are chasing a Champions League place.
