Sports Mole looks ahead to Juventus's first match after retaining the Serie A title against Atalanta.

Wednesday's meeting at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia will see two sides that have very little to play for come up against each other.

For Atalanta BC, it's been a case of 'job done' this season. They've almost beaten off the threat of relegation and need just a point from their last three matches to secure their status - they may not even need that depending on other results.

Having come off the bench at the weekend, Matteo Contini could be included in the Atalanta defence for the visit of the Old Lady.

Staying with Juventus, they retained the Serie A title on Sunday. However, coach Antonio Conte is still expected to name a strong lineup for the clash. He will be without former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, though, after the French international was given a three-match ban for spitting.

These teams have met on 50 occasions in Atalanta, but the home side have only managed to record seven wins, while Juve have 22 to their name.
