Juventus will play away from home against Atalanta this afternoon (Sunday).
The Old Lady currently sits third in the league, with La Dea right behind at 4th, with a single point separating the two sides.
Nonetheless, a report from Football Italia outlined the enormous difference between the two clubs from an economical standpoint.
Whilst Cristiano Ronaldo famously earns an astonishing 31 million euros per season as net wages, Atalanta’s highest earner is Duvan Zapata at 1.2 millions per year.
Moreover, the Orobici’s gross wages for the season are calculated at 42.6 millions, which completely pales in comparison to the Bianconeri’s 236 millions per year.
It must be noted that Atalanta’s total gross wages are even lower than Ronaldo’s, after counting taxes.
The source also states that these figures are all reflected in the clubs’ balance sheets, as although Juventus have €406.8m in revenue compared to Atalanta’s €149.9m, La Dea run at a profit of €26.4m and Juve lost €89.7m last year.
