Massimiliano Allegri’s men get a victory in their most-recent match against Monza in the Coppa Italia, winning 2-1, despite previously losing 5-1 to Napoli.

While Gasperini’s Atalanta side has scored 13 goals in their last two games.

Five minutes into the first half, Atalanta opened the scoring after a mistake by Wojciech Szczesny who failed to save a shot by Ademola Lookman.

Juventus then started to try to repay the goal, which was eventually scored by Angel Di Maria from the penalty spot won by Nicolo Fagioli on 25th minutes.

In the 34th minute of the game, Arkadiusz Milik scored Juventus’ second goal with a volley from a beautiful cross from Nicolo Fagioli after a crazy skill from Angel Di Maria earlier.

The first half ended with Juventus leading 2-1 against Atalanta at the Allianz Stadium, with John Elkann in the stands watching the game.

Like they did in the first-half, Atalanta equalised just after two minutes into the second half of the game, where Joakim Maelhe scored after mistakes made by Danilo and Alex Sandro.

At the 53rd minute of the game, Ademola Lookman, who was a threat to Juventus, scored Atalanta’s third goal with the header converting a brilliant cross from Jeremie Boga, who even assisted him on his first goal of the game.

Juventus kept trying to find a goal until the 65th minute of the match when Juventus got a free kick then Angel Di Maria looked to step up and take it but he instead layed it off behind him for Danilo, who strike a low first-time effort that get past the wall and beat the outstretched hand of Musso.

The match ended in a 3-3 draw, with Juventus occupying 9th place in the league standings with a total of 23 points.

Juventus have now conceded eight goals in their last two league games, after having conceded just seven in their first 17 league matches.
