In a six-goal thriller, Juventus and Atalanta both earned points

The team led by Massimiliano Allegri was playing their first game since being penalized 15 points on Friday by an Italian soccer court that was looking into the club’s transfer dealings.

This has left the club, which was once third, stuck in mid-table. On Sunday, Juventus managed to salvage a 3-3 draw with Atalanta in Serie A despite issues off the field.

The team led by Massimiliano Allegri was playing their first game since being penalized 15 points on Friday by an Italian soccer court that was looking into the club’s transfer dealings.

This has left the club, which was once third, stuck in mid-table. Atalanta is fifth with 35 points, while Juventus is ninth with 23 points following Sunday’s outcome.

“We have to keep working on the pitch.” Allegri stated to DAZN, “We must thank the players for what they did this evening.”

“I realize that it is psychologically damaging to see yourself go from second or third place to 10th; it feels like having what you achieved taken away.”

“The players and staff who worked around them deserve praise.” Having scored 13 goals in their previous two matches across all competitions, Atalanta put the Juventus defense through its paces early on.

“If you come to Turin solely to defend, you will almost certainly lose on a free kick or penalty kick.” “I always believe you need to score goals in these games or you don’t get a result,” Atlanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini told DAZN.

After five minutes, Atalanta scored when forward Ademola Lookman got to the edge of the box and shot past Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny from a tight angle.

In the 25th minute, Angel Di Maria converted an Ederson foul on Nicolo Fagioli’s penalty to bring the hosts level. Within less than ten minutes, Arkadiusz Milik completed the comeback with a volley inside the box from a cross from Fagioli.

After Joakim Maehle leveled the score 35 seconds into the second half and Lookman headed in his second of the night in the 53rd, Atalanta regained the lead after eight minutes. With a well-placed low free kick in the 65th minute, Danilo brought Juventus level.
