– Atalanta have lost 65 games and conceded 214 goals so far against Juventus – both more than against any other Serie A opponent.

– Juventus are unbeaten in their last 30 Serie A games against Atalanta (W24 D6), with their last loss coming in February 2001 when La Dea’s coach was Giovanni Vavassori.

– Juventus have won 38 of their 57 home games against Atalanta, sharing 15 draws and losing only four times so far.

– Juventus have scored at least two goals in their last nine Serie A games at the Allianz Stadium: they last scored 2+ goals in more successive such matches in December 2016.

– Juventus have conceded 30 goals in the current Serie A season, as many as in the whole 2018/19 campaign – they last conceded more in a single campaign in 2010/11 (38 after 31 matchdays, 47 at the end of the season).

– Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini has lost 13 times so far against Juventus, more than against any other opponent, sharing five draws and winning only twice.
