2021 Coppa Italia tips – goals could be on the cards

We’re down to the final two in the 2020-21 Coppa Italia, with Atalanta and Juventus clashing at the Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore in Reggio Emilia for this illustrious piece of silverware and it should be an entertaining clash between two of the best teams in Italy.

While Internazionale have cantered off with the 2020-21 Serie A title, Atalanta and Juventus could lay claim to being the next best teams in Italy this term, with the two sides sitting second and third in the standings at the time of writing and the bookies make Juve their betting favourites to win silverware.

Are Juventus a Good Bet at 13/10 to Win Final?

Juve have failed to successfully defend their Scudetto this season and the Coppa Italia represents their only chance to land some silverware, with the bookies making them betting favourites to get the better of Atalanta on 19 May, with the Turin side having reached the final after overcoming Inter over two legs in the semi-final.

Andrea Pirlo will certainly want to finish the campaign with some silverware and his team are big odds-on to lift the trophy whether that’s in normal time, extra-time or through a penalty shoot-out, with the team having won four of their past six matches at the time of writing.

However, Juventus are far from invincible this season and seem to rely heavily on the continued scoring power of Cristiano Ronaldo, with the evergreen forward having scored 37 goals to date and he could be a central figure in this final against dangerous opponents.

Atalanta Look Good Betting Value to Win Coppa Italia

Ultimately, there has been nothing between Atalanta and Juventus in the Serie A standings this season and the betting value probably lies with La Dea who continue to demonstrate that they’re one of the strongest teams in Italy on a season-by-season basis.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are well suited to cup competitions and they drew 0-0 away to Napoli in the semi-finals before coming away with a 3-1 victory in the second leg where a couple of early goals took the tie right away from their Naples opponents.

Since losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League, Atalanta have won five and drawn two of their past seven matches, including a dramatic winner against Juventus to recently beat the former Italian champions by a single goal although this team are capable of scoring in bigger volumes as the stats attest to.

Seventy-nine goals have been plundered in thirty-four clashes and this marks them out as dangerous opponents who will go forward in search of goals as they look to win the Coppa Italia for their second time in their history and they certainly look the best bet.

Bookies Expecting Goals to Be Scored

A lot of betting customers tend to lean towards the Atalanta matches when it comes to either betting on Over 2.5 Goals or BTTS Yes, with Gasperini’s team having been highly offensive over the past few seasons and the Coppa Italia betting sites are of the opinion that the net will bulge a few times in this match.

However, the two teams have been engaged in fairly low-scoring Serie A clashes this season, with a 1-1 draw being played out in Turin before Atalanta came away with a 1-0 victory and perhaps this will be a cagier match than the betting odds suggest.

What Are the Best Coppa Italia Bets?

We think Atalanta are the betting value and it might be that the bookies anticipate a weight of money coming for Juventus despite little indication that they’re actually better than their opponents.

Indeed, the pressure is on Juve considering that they need the prestige of some silverware after landing the Serie A title and we’re happy to take a punt on La Dea on the Draw No Bet market or even look at siding with them as the underdog on the Asian Handicap betting market.
