Atalanta Net Late To Deny Juve Victory

Serie A 

Result: Atalanta 2-2 Juventus 

Date: 28 April 2017

Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia

Atalanta struck late in the second half to secure a point against Juventus, as the two sides played out a 2-2 draw at the Atleti Azzurri d'Italia.

Massimiliano Allegri named a strong side, despite the fact that they have a Champions League final next week Wednesday.

However, the Serie A leaders struggled to break down the Atalanta in the opening 20 minutes despite seeing a lot of the possession.

Atalanta nearly broke the deadlock in the 30th minute through Freuler, but the Swiss midfielder saw his low effort saved by Gianluigu Buffon.

However, the home side were not to be denied on the stroke of halftime break, as Andre Conti slotted past Buffon from close range, 1-0.

Juventus leveled matters five minutes into the second half as Leonardo Spinazzola deflected Dybala's effort into his own net.

Atalanta opted for a change after 66 minutes as the highly-rated Ivorian midfielder, Franck Kessie replaced Jasmin Kurtic.

Besart Berisha came to Atalanta's rescue in the 73rd minute, as he produced a superb save to keep out Gonzalo Higuain's first-time strike from close range.

Juventus eventually took the lead in the 83rd minute as Alves got on the end of Miralem Pjanic's cross and sent a headed past Berisha.

However, Atalanta leveled matters in the 89th minute as Remo Freuler slotted home from close range after his initial effort was saved by Buffon, 2-2.
