Juventus 0-1 Atalanta: Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie stumble away as the troubled Serie A giants collapse to defeat the day after club offices were raided by Italian police, with Duvan Zapata scoring the winner for visitors


Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie stumbled as Juventus collapsed to defeat the day after Italian police searched the offices of clubs in Turin and Milan during an investigation into transfer transactions.

The hosts struggled to create standout openings in the first half, with their defenses not up to the mark either, as they let Duvan Zapata come in after 28 minutes.

Juve failed to provide much of a response when chasing an equaliser, with Paulo Dybala’s late free kick cutting the bar as close as they came to a leveler.

Atalanta held on relatively comfortably, extending their unbeaten run to eight games in all competitions to remain fourth at 28 points, four points behind leaders Napoli and seven points clear of Juve, who are 11 points behind the pace after a fifth loss in 14 Serie A games.
