A six-goal-thriller between Juventus and Atalanta ended up without a winner. After a horrible week, the Bianconeri showed character as they restart the chase for European football.
The match couldn’t have started any worse for Juventus. After the hard hit of the 15 point deduction in Serie A, the Bianconeri also conceded after five minutes because of a Szczesny mistake. The Polish goalkeeper slapped a Lookman shot at the near post into his own goal.
23 minutes into the match, Nicolò Fagioli earned Juventus a penalty, which was converted by Angel Di Maria. A beautiful Bianconeri attack ten minutes later ended up with Milik scoring the 2-1 from a great cross by Fagioli. That attack also included some Di Maria magic.
Juventus started the second half horrendously. Both Maehle and Boga scored to put Atalanta ahead in the first ten minutes after the break. Just past the hour mark, Juve received a free-kick on the edge of the Atalanta box. Di Maria flicked it towards Danilo, and the captain fired it towards the bottom left corner. Musso had no chance to save that effort.
Although Miretti came very close to the winner, it would stay 3-3. This result puts Juventus 9th in the league.
