Serie A Highlights: Atlanta 2-2 Juventus
It was a draw between Atlanta and Juventus on 26th December, 2018. Substitute Cristiano Ronaldo came from the bench at last to score a late equaliser in Bergamo, as Juventus fought back to draw 2-2 against Atalanta.
Otherwise it was an away defeat for them, Juventus were already playing with 10 men at that time. Rodrigo Bentancur was Red carded on 53rd minute. Atlanta’s striker Duvan Zapata’s double looked like it would inflict the first defeat of the season for Allegri’s team. Zapata scored on 24th and 56th minute of the match. The first came for Juventus as an own goal from Djimsiti on first minute.
With a goal lead in hand Atlanta were playing better than Juventus and had 52% of overall balls possessions and 6 shots on goal. Allegri sent on Ronaldo with 25 minutes remaining, and less than 60 seconds after Robin Gosens wasted a golden opportunity to seal victory for Atalanta, the Portuguese star pounced to nod home from close range.
This is now the third time in succession that Juventus have failed to pick maximum points.
