Bonaventura’s Christmas wish…

Giacomo Bonaventura is hoping his Atalanta side can become just the third team this season to take points off Juventus.

The two meet in Bergamo on Sunday with the League leaders looking for their 15th win from 17 games. Only Inter and Fiorentina have denied them maximum points in Serie A.

“It won’t be a walk in the park against Juventus,” Bonaventura told the Corriere dello Sport on Friday.

“I expect a really difficult game as Juventus have made their opponents suffer for some time and they have dominated for years.

“We managed to hold Roma and Inter to 1-1 draws and it would be a nice Christmas gift to get a result against Juve.

“We can take anyone on at home, but we will need a perfect game.”

The Nerazzurri have lost just once at home all season.
