Atalanta had a great chance to climb to second place in the standings. To do this she had to beat in Turin, the Serie A leader, Juventus. And BERGAMASCHI were very close to it!
The first time they’d won unconditionally: 58:42% possession, 5:2 strikes, 2:1 at the corner. But the main thing – and the score! Gomez and Zapata together, peretasoval, went through the defense of the Old Lady, and Zapata shot into the far corner of the BERGAMASCHI brought forward – 0:1! Note that the team repeated the achievement of the Juventus season 1951/52: three of the player “Atlanta” scored a season not less than 15 goals (17 Muriel, Iličić and Zapata – 15). Since then, Serie A was not such cases!
The owners only by the end of the period managed to move the game from their gates. And the second was much more charged. The “Atalanta” for a long time nothing happened in front of goal, and then not luck and their. After lumbago from the flank, the ball hit the hand of de rupelmonde. A penalty kick into the left corner sold Ronaldo – 1:1.
Guests, seeing that the game got out of control, made a double substitution. Instead of the players “made” the first goal came Malinowski and Muriel. And “made” his goal! The Colombian left threw the pass along the penalty area, and Ukrainian powerful shot into the near corner – 1:2!
Alas, the “Atalanta” could not hold the advantage. At the end of the match in the penalty area it happened one more time with the game hand. And doubly annoying is the ball already flying out of the penalty area, found the hand of Muriel. Ronaldo struck exactly as much and in the same corner and again the Keeper reached for the ball!
2:2, and Juve with 76 points continues to remain at the top of the standings. On 15 July, the Bianconeri go on a visit to Sassuolo. Atalanta scored 67 points and ranks third. July 14, BERGAMASCHI take Brescia.
