The match struggled to live up to the high expectations as both defences were on top for the majority of the match. The deadlock was finally broken with only a few minutes remaining by Ruslan Malinovskyi, who had come on as a substitute.
Player of the match – Ruslan Malinsovkyi
The Ukrainian was the difference in the end. Only coming on as a second-half substitute, his direct and shoot-on-sight style added a spark to Atalanta that they had been lacking in the attacking third of the pitch.
He came close seconds before eventually scoring the winner hitting a tremendous free-kick from 35 yards towards the top corner forcing a great save from the Juventus goalkeeper. Moments later, he needed no invitation to hit another strike from the edge of the area and with a bit of fortune deflected and hit the back of the net.
