Team Analysis
The Coppa Italia trophy is set as the prize for this Wednesday evening's battle, with Atalanta and Juventus facing each other in the grand finale at Rome's Stadio Olimpico. Holding numerous trophies already, Juventus seeks to add to their 14 Coppa Italia titles. Comparatively, Atalanta has had modest success, with only a single victory in their history, the 1962/63 Coppa Italia.

Atalanta, in their last seven outings across various competitions, has been victorious in six and drawn one. Juventus, on the other hand, enters this match without a win in their previous six games across all competitions. Impressively, none of Juventus’ last three league matches yielded three or more goals.

Atalanta's spirits will undoubtedly be high for the game given their current hot streak. Manager Gianpiero Gasperini's men have somehow maintained their blistering run of form despite a grueling schedule in the past few weeks. A crucial victory came against Roma in a tough battle for a top five finish.

Conversely, Juventus' narrative is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Their winless streak extended to six matches after barely avoiding defeat with a 1-1 draw against bottom-dwelling Salernitana. French midfielder Adrien Rabiot's last-minute goal salvaged the game for Juventus.

In the last six head-to-head matches between these rivals, a draw was the outcome for five games running. This string includes a 1-1 draw in Turin two months prior. Of the previous seven matches, only two witnessed three or more goals.

Atalanta soars in with an impressive record of six wins and one draw from their last seven matches in all competitions. Included in this streak is a 3.0 trouncing of Marseille in the UEFA Europa League semi-final return leg and a 4-1 routing of Fiorentina in the reverse match of the Coppa Italia semi-final in Bergamo.

Comparatively, Juventus is currently on a six-match streak without a win across various tournaments. Their series of lackluster performances culminated most recently in a disappointing 1-1 draw with last-placed Salernitana.

Odds Analysis
Given the circumstances, Atalanta's win is a tempting prospect at the 2.70 odds. An alternative consideration is the Under 2.5 goals pick, quoted at 1.61 odds. It's a final game, hence it's reasonable to expect a more cautious approach from both teams. Additionally, none of Juventus' last three matches had three or more goals. With five of the previous seven head to head encounters between Juventus and Atalanta ending with fewer than three goals, the Under 2.5 goals option appears a judicious choice.

Pick: Atalanta to win
