The snow which fell overnight in Turin may have given Vinovo a more festive feel, but it’s not time for Juventus to celebrate just yet: Sunday holds a difficult away trip to Atalanta, so it was business as usual in training this morning.
The focus of the workout devised by Antonio Conte for today was tactics. The group ran through the schemes and movements to put in place at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, a ground which has been something of a fortress this season.
Only Fiorentina have been able to get the better of the Nerazzurri there during the 2013/14 campaign, and Stefano Colantuono’s men have held Scudetto hopefuls Inter and Roma to draws so far in Bergamo.
Perhaps the biggest threat the hosts pose is Argentine striker German Denis, their top scorer this season with six, but he is without a goal in nine previous meetings with Juventus.
The Bianconeri will be back at work tomorrow morning to carry out their final preparations ahead of Sunday’s game.
