Juventus have just been held back by a draw from their trip to Atalanta’s headquarters, but it is certain that the results do not necessarily shake the Bianconneri’s position at the top of the standings, except their distance with Napoli will be closer. However, Massimilliano Allegri’s landing squad can forget the defeat and focus on the next match against Sampdoria, who will be their last party in 2018. Their match itself is planned to take place on the upcoming Saturday night, December 29, 2018 at Allianz Stadium, Turin.
In the match that took place at Atalanta headquarters yesterday, actually coach Massimilliano Allegri intended not to play Cristiano Ronaldo, but the situation left behind from the hosts forced the tactician to lower the US card in the second half, which resulted in Ronaldo scoring a goal that saved Juventus from the first defeat in the Italian Serie A event this season. The result of one point is enough for Juventus to establish a position at the top of the standings, but the distance with Napoli as the nearest rival could be cut.
Back to the match against Sampdoria, as the host, Juventus were clearly more favored to win than Sampdoria. On paper, the Bianconneri is also better than the Samp II. In their last five parties, Juventus only lost once. But Samp II cannot be underestimated either, because they are unbeaten in their last five parties and pack 4 wins among them. In the temporary standings, Sampdoria sits in 5th place.
