Points shared again in yesterday’s headline match between Atalanta and Juventus but Atalanta are furious with the result. 

Juve started well, overwhelming the Atalanta defence with Sportiello pulling off a great save from a Vlahovic shot and the Juve number 9 was left raging when Dybala cut inside and elected to shoot rather than play in the new Juve number 7. 

But the main incident of the half involved Juventus keeper Szcecesny. Koopmeijners was played through and as Szcecesny raced out, he brought down the Atalanta midfielder, miles outside his penalty box. VAR took a look and decided no action needed to be taken. To put it mildly, Atalanta disagreed. 

They opened the scoring 15 minutes from time when a free kick 25 yards out was played sideways to Malinovskyi who smashed it in for 1-0 Atalanta. The home side hit the bar from close range and were punished for that miss in the 92nd minute when Danilo rose highest to head home a Dybala cross. 

Gasperini refused to speak to the referee or the media after the game. 

Earlier in the day, Milan took the chance to leapfrog Inter and Napoli to lead Serie A. Rafael Leao put through by his keeper Maignan to cut inside and slot it past Sampdoria keeper Falcone after just 8 minutes. It was an awful game full of annoying stoppages and feigned injuries but Milan will be happy with the result. 

Draws between Genoa and Salernitana and Empoli/Cagliari while Verona thrashed Udinese 4-0. 

Jose Mourinho’s Roma escaped from the their game away to Sassuolo with a 2-2 draw after going a goal up in first half injury time. 

A Smalling own goal drew Sassuolo level immediately after the break and Hamed Traore put them 2-1 up with 15 minutes to go. Sassuolo were reduced to 10 men when Ferrari received a second yellow card for a foul on Abraham and Roma drew level when Cristante’s header was adjudged to have crossed the line before before being cleared.  

There is one more game remaining in Serie A, Spezia at home to Fiorentina tonight.
