Duvan Zapata Strikes As Juventus Lose Yet Again

In a low-quality match at the Allianz Stadium, Atalanta defeated Juventus 1-0. Gianpiero Gasperini’s men held on to a crucial three points thanks to a goal from Duvan Zapata in the 28th minute.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side appeared toothless throughout, unable to cope with their opponents’ high-tempo pressing tactics, which harassed and harried them out of possession while still being intelligent when they had the ball.

Zapata’s winning goal was excellent, but it also demonstrated the shakiness of a Juventus team that has been underperforming in Serie A, as this defeat drops them to eighth place, seven points behind the winners in the top four.

Weston McKennie came close with a deflected shot off Berat Djimsiti that was expertly stopped by Juan Musso, while Paulo Dybala had a lot of chances but couldn’t convert.

In the second half, Juve improved, but they struggled to get their forward players involved, while Atalanta fought valiantly to secure the win.

Gasperini and the visitors keep their top-four berth, but Allegri’s Juventus have a long way to go.
