The stage is set for a thrilling Coppa Italia final as Atalanta BC and Juventus lock horns at Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday, May 15, 2024.

This matchup promises not only a clash of tactical brilliance but also a contest filled with determination and historic aspirations.

Recent Form and Road to the Final

Atalanta

Atalanta, coached by the tactically astute Gian Piero Gasperini, have been building momentum both in domestic and European competitions.

Their journey to the Coppa Italia final has been highlighted by dramatic wins, including a memorable second-leg comeback against Fiorentina in the semi-finals.

With victories over Sassuolo and AC Milan as well, Atalanta’s blend of tactical nous and late-game heroics has brought them to the brink of their first major trophy since the 1960s.

Juventus

On the other side, Juventus, led by Max Allegri, have been struggling to hit their usual high standards this season.

Despite securing a Champions League berth, their performance in Serie A has been less convincing, with the team currently positioned fourth.

However, Juventus have shown resilience in the Coppa Italia, navigating past challenges with a mix of tactical rigidity and individual brilliance.

Team News and Tactical Setup

Atalanta

Atalanta will be without Gianluca Scamacca due to suspension, which could see Charles De Ketelaere stepping forward as the lead striker, supported by Ademola Lookman or Aleksei Miranchuk.

Key players like Emil Holm and Rafael Toloi are sidelined as well, posing additional challenges for Gasperini's lineup choices.
