The Christmas period in 2018 brought with it a healthy dose of Serie A action and one man stepped above the rest, with Duvan Zapata’s display putting him on Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini’s nice list.

His side took on Juventus in Bergamo and he proved a massive headache for the Bianconeri defence with his physicality and movement, dragging them into deep waters.

He almost single handedly helped earn the Orobici an important three points, scoring twice against the champions in the 2-2 draw at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.

Those goals quite simply proved the rich vein of form that the former Napoli man is in at the moment and incredibly, from his last eight shots on target, he has hit the net on each occasion!

The goals mean that for the first time in his career, he has netted in five consecutive matches and has also scored in his last three home games against Juventus across three different clubs – proving himself something of an antidote to the Old Lady.
