- End of 1st Half
There's half time. Plenty to process there, we'll be back in 15 as Atalanta go in ahead at the break.
The high press of Atalanta is still a thorn in the side of the hosts. They're struggling to play through it.
- Yellow cardDavide ZappacostaAtalanta
Chiesa is felled by Zappacosta, who is booked.
It's been a better last ten from the home side. They're looking more dangerous in possession, but they're still lacking that cutting edge.
- Yellow cardRuslan MalinovskiyAtalanta
Malinovskyi is booked for a foul on Dybala.
Dybala is tackled well by Toloi.
Better from Juve! Worked well out to Sandro on the left, and his cross comes out to Dybala, who scuffs the strike on the edge of the area.
- Yellow cardRemo FreulerAtalanta
Freuler is booked for a foul on Rabiot.
Looking for Bonucci, but the ball sails out for a goal kick.
Free kick. Juventus. Dybala is over it.
Juve need to sort themselves out here. Their play in possession has not been up to scratch, and they just can't seem to deal with the attacking intent of this Atalanta side.
- GoalDuvan ZapataAtalanta
GOAL! Zapata finishes sumptuously, and it's his seventh in seven games, as the visitors take the lead, deservedly so. Morata the guilty party gave it away, and the Colombian finished emphatically.
Dybala is hurt after a collision with Djimsiti.
de Ligt's backpass is weak, and Zapata nearly steals in ahead of Szczesny, but the goalkeeper clears his lines.
Locatelli's driving run wins the hosts a throw in the attacking third.
Calm possession for the visitors at the moment. Zapata did well iniitially holding up the play, but the decision goes against him when the ball goes out for a throw.
Cuadrado... great ball... finds Chiesa, but a superb recovering challenge from Toloi halts him as a bears down on goal.
Good press from Malinovskyi forces Locatelli back, but here come Juve on the attack.
Wide! A loose pass from de Ligt allows Zapata to take possession in the final third, finding Freuler, but he strikes over the bar.
A strong burst down the Juve right from the Colombian Cuadrado, but Maehle defends his channel well, winning the free kick for the visitors.
Demiral fouls Morata in the centre circle.
Zappacosta collects the ball down the right and angles a dangerous cross into the box, but Cuadrado clears ahead of Malinovskyi.
The hosts are trying to work their way back to get a foothold into the contest, but they're clearly wary of the threat Atalanta have on the break.
Slight formational observation: McKennie is off the right for Juve, with Chiesa on the left wing. Rabiot is in the centre with Locatelli.
Atalanta are starting to take the game to Juve now. Malinovskyi and Pessina are picking up good positions around and even beyond Zapata, and the home midfield are struggling to cope with the numbers.
Good block! Zapata surges into the right channel and cuts it back for Malinovskyi who shoots, but a combination of de Ligt and Bonucci blocks well! Still 0-0, but an early chance for the visitors.
Both sides trying to ease themselves into this one. Early spells of possession for both, but neither side really penetrating at present.
Here are the full team line-ups if you missed them:
Juventus: Szczesny, Cuadrado, Bonucci, de Ligt, Sandro, Chiesa, Locatelli, McKennie, Rabiot, Morata, Dybala.
Atalanta: Musso, Toloi, Demiral, Djimsiti, Zappacosta, Freuler, de Roon, Maehle, Malinovskyi, Pessina, Zapata.
Juve come into this game off the back of two important wins on the bounce against Fiorentina and Lazio, whilst the visitors are six games unbeaten, coming into this match off a 5-2 win over Spezia.
With the hosts Juventus wallowing in a lowly 7th place so far, we see the visitors four points ahead of them in 4th. A win for the Old Lady would take them above Roma into 5th, at least momentarily, and Atalanta would go level on points with Inter Milan should they win at the Allianz Stadium.
It's a classic back three. Juan Musso is shielded by Rafael Toloi, Merih Demiral and Berat Djimsiti, and Joakim Maehle and Davide Zappacosta are on the flanks. Remo Freuler and Marten de Roon sit in the middle of the park, with Matteo Pessina and Ruslan Malinovskyi ahead of them, roaming around and behind lone striker Duvan Zapata.
Here is the visiting 11...
It seems as though it'll be a fluid shape for the hosts today, whereby a 4-3-3 becomes a 4-4-2 at times. Wojiech Szczesny is protected by a back four of Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro at full-back, with Matthijis de Ligt partnered by Leonardo Bonucci in the middle. In the engine room, Adrien Rabiot could well shift to the left-hand side when out of possession, and Manuel Locatelli and Weston McKennie play more centrally. To the right, Federico Chiesa will play alongside Alvaro Morata and the talismanic Argentine Paulo Dybala.
We're just awaiting the visiting line-up, but in the mean time, let's dissect Juve's 11...
Here are the hosts...
