A single shot on target and a solid defense were enough for Atalanta, less flamboyant but solid, to take a precious victory on the Roma site (0-1), much to the chagrin of José Mourinho, who was ruled out for playing too violently. fine. The “Dea” won thanks to a precise attack by Scalvini (35th). De Giallorossi, robbed at the last minute from Paulo Dybala, collected the equalizer chances, but in vain.

Juve, for its part, are pale after seven days of the championship (four draws and one defeat): the old lady lost to Monza (1-0), who was red lantern before the match.

Angel Di Maria embodied the current feverishness of the Bianconeri, barred from an exasperating nudge (40th).
