Atalanta’s surge under the leadership of coach Gian Piero Gasperini continues. The team are second in Serie A and have qualified for the Champions League for the third straight season. Before the final day of the Serie A campaign, however, La Dea will play Juventus in the Coppa Italia Final. Gasperini is seeking the club’s first trophy since 1963 – the last time they won the Coppa Italia.

The Bergamo club were runners-up in the Coppa Italia in 2018-19. They fell 2-0 to Lazio in Rome to end what was a Cinderella run to the final. Juventus will appear in their second straight Coppa Italia Final. They lost last season’s tournament finale 2-1 to Napoli. Now, both teams are seeking redemption from their recent cup final losses.

Juventus could have the final day of the Serie A season on their minds going into Wednesday night’s final. Juventus are fifth in the Serie A table and one point behind fourth-place Napoli. The reigning Serie A champions have already missed out on the title and could also fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League under Andrea Pirlo.

The Old Lady could sneak into the top four on the final day, however. Atalanta must play AC Milan in a game the latter need to win to finish in the top four. Meanwhile, Napoli play Hellas Verona. Atalanta have already qualified for the Champions League thanks to a better head-to-head versus Juventus.
