Juventus remain in front of Atalanta, with 46 points to 44, even if la Dea have a game in hand, sitting in fourth and fifth respectively. It is the first time since 1966 that Atalanta are unbeaten in five league games against their rivals, but they will be less happy, considering how Juventus scored so late. 

The game was active, full of chances, and should have seen a goal earlier than the 76th minute, when Malinovskyi scored an indirect free-kick. The Ukranian was fabulous in the 30 minutes he played, creating a glorious chance which Hans Hateboer sent against the crossbar with a few minutes to spare.

It looked over, but Danilo scored from Paulo Dybala’s corner at the 92nd minute and got his team a deserved point.

The total said 21 shots for Atalanta and 15 for Juventus. Goalkeepers were protagonists, but the lack of attacking precision was a big factor. The hosts were without long-term injured Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel had a quiet game until he was subbed off. New Juventus signing Dusan Vlahovic wasn’t particularly sharp and had his first goalless night for the team. 

Atalanta will host Olympiacos in the Europa League on Thursday, before travelling to Fiorentina on the weekend. Juventus, instead, are set for the derby against Torino on Friday night.
