Live in-play betting – 

Impressive Atlanta host league leaders Juventus as they continue their push to play in Europe next season.

They have proved their doubters wrong this season and are currently in 5th position with 63 points after 33 games, trailing 4th placed Lazio by just 1 point.

They are currently on a run of 5 games without a defeat, winning 3 and drawing 2.

They have not lost a home game since December, a period which they have played 8 times at home winning 6 of those games.

A win in this game could see them move 4th ahead of Lazio until the latter plays their game this weekend.

Juventus enter this game in buoyant mood after knocking out Napoli from the Coppa Italia, and sending Barcelona home from the UEFA Champions League.

The Old Ladies of Turin are champions elect – they are currently 8 points clear of 2nd placed AS Roma and could win the Serie A with 2 games to spare.

They have won 5 of their last 6 league games, and on away form, they have 3 wins from their last 5 away games in the league.

It will definitely not be easy playing away at Atlanta with the UEFA Champions League semifinal  in their mind in a weeks time.
