Both sides secured Copa del Rey wins in the mid-week, with the hosts beating Monza 2-1, while Atalanta thrashed Spezia 5-2.
Juventus, who are going through a tough period due to some off the field issues, will host Atalanta in the Serie A fixture at Juventus stadium on Sunday night. 15 points have been deducted from the tally of the Bianconeri for alleged financial irregularities and false accounting. Meanwhile, on the field, the hosts were thrashed 5-1 by league-leaders Napoli in their last top flight match last Saturday, before securing a 2-1 win over Monza in the mid-week to enter the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey. The visitors, meanwhile, defeated Spezia 5-2 on Wednesday to enter the last-8 of the Cup competition.

Juventus suffered their worst loss in any competition for three decades when they were thrashed by Napoli last Saturday. The result brought an abrupt end to their eight-game winning run, without conceding a goal. To add salt to their wounds, FIGC (Italian FA) handed a 15-point penalty for financial irregularities, pushing them down to 10th in the standings. However, Allegri’s side managed to get the better of Monza in the Cup fixture on Wednesday, courtesy of Moise Kean’s early opener and Federico Chiesa’s winner, twelve minutes from time.

Atalanta, on the other hand, are in stunning form having won their last three matches across all competitions, scoring 15 times and conceding just five. Last time out, The Goddess beat Spezia, courtesy of Ademola Lookaman’s early brace, one goal each from Hans Hateboer and Rasmus Hojlung and Ethan Ampadu’s late own goal. Prior to that, the Black and Blues secured a thumping 8-2 league win over Salernitana last weekend. It was Gian Piero Gasperini’s side’s 10th Serie A-win of the season, taking their points tally to 34, level with fourth-placed Lazio.

Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot has joined the likes of Paul Pogba and Leonardo Bonucci in the treatment room, while Dusan Vlahovic and Juan Cuadrado have started training after recovering from injuries. Chiesa, who has made a stunning return from an ACL injury, scoring the winner in the last outing, is not far away from getting back to the starting eleven. As of now, Allegri will be careful not to rush with the Italian forward. Atlanta, meanwhile, are set to be without Duvan Zapata and Teun Koopmeiners because of injury and suspension respectively. In-form striker Lookman wil partner Hojlund up front.
