Juventus gets new blow: De Ligt plays negative lead

Juventus has lost the Serie A topper against Atalanta Bergamo. Coach Massimiliano Allegri‘s squad suffered all his fifth defeat of the season. Matthijs de Ligt played a negative lead role in the only hit of the match.
At Atalanta, Marten de Roon started one Dutchman in the base. On the other hand, De Ligt appeared at the kickoff, but the former Ajacied was the bitten dog after half an hour. He lifted offside, which allowed Duvรกn Zapata to be devastating: 0-1. Juventus couldn’
t do anything against that. Only Paulo Dybala – in vain – ventured two attempts.

In the second half, the Old Lady seemed to tap out of another keg for a while. Substitute Federico Bernardeschi shot next door, a long shot from De Ligt was blocked and a Dybala stake passed. Juve kept trying, but really embarrassed Atalanta was not brought after that. Only Dybala still hit the top of the bar with a free kick in the final minutes.
For Juventus, it‘s a new disappointment. Although Allegri’s team was already placed for the eighth final of the Champions League, it got 4-0 knocks from Chelsea on Tuesday. On Saturday, the Italian prosecutor also raided the club from Turin.
Meanwhile, Juve gets stuck in eighth place in Serie A. Atalanta, where Teun Koopmeiners collapsed shortly before and Hans Hateboer stayed on the bench, stands fourth.
