(1:10)Juventus slipped to a last-gasp 1-0 defeat at Atalanta on Sunday as Gian Piero Gasperini’s side leapfrogged the champions into third place in the Serie A standings.Juve, missing Cristiano Ronaldo due to injury, struggled to break down the in-form hosts without their Portuguese talisman and were forced to defend for much of the second half against Serie A’s top scorers.It looked as though Juve had done enough to hold on for a point, but substitute Ruslan Malinovskiy snatched a fifth successive league win for Atalanta in the 87th minute, sparking wild scenes of celebration.– Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S.

Victory for Napoli would move them level on points with Andrea Pirlo’s side.Sixth-placed Lazio moved four points behind Juventus, having played one game less, after an entertaining 5-3 win over Benevento — their fifth league victory in a row — while Bologna beat Spezia 4-1.In-form Atalanta took the game to Juve early on in Bergamo, with Matteo Pessina wasting a glorious chance to give the hosts the lead.Atalanta have conceded the most goals of any of the top six and hesitation in his own penalty area from Joakim Maehle gave Alvaro Morata a great chance to break the deadlock.
However, the Spaniard’s tame effort was cleared off the line late in the opening period.Paulo Dybala, starting for the first time since early January, tired as the match wore on and had to be replaced, leaving Juve short of options up front.As a result, Pirlo’s side sat back, happy to take the point, but moments after Malinovskiy’s stunning freekick was brilliantly saved by Wojciech Szczesny, he popped up with the winner, his strike taking a huge deflection en route to goalMin deposit £5.

A late deflected Ruslan Malinovskyi strike gave Atalanta the points in this showdown for third place and their first Serie A win over Juventus since 2001
A late deflected Ruslan Malinovskyi strike gave Atalanta the points in this showdown for third place and their first Serie A win over Juventus since 2001.
Watch the highlights here Only one point separated these teams in third and fourth going into the weekend, but Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t make the trip due to a muscular issue, with Federico Bernardeschi suffering from COVID, so Paulo Dybala had to start.
Cristian Romero was suspended and Hans Hateboer injured, though Matteo Pessina returned after his spell with Coronavirus.
The pressure was largely on the Bianconeri, who ran the real risk of missing out on the Champions League.
Luis Muriel went down under pressure from fellow Colombian Juan Cuadrado in the opening minutes, while Robin Gosens made a decisive block on Cuadrado and Pessina combined with Muriel to see his shot deflected wide by Matthijs de Ligt.
Juventus really should’ve taken the lead on 34 minutes when Federico Chiesa caught Joakim Maehle napping in the box and set up Alvaro Morata, but the Spaniard took one too many touches, tried to dink it over Pierluigi Gollini and Berat Djimsiti was able to clear off the line.
Maehle got another decisive block in on Chiesa from a Cuadrado pull-back.
Muriel’s curler flashed wide, but Chiesa pulled up with a muscular problem and had to come off.
Duvan Zapata’s diving header was inches wide from a Josip Ilicic cross, while Morata saw his volley on a Dejan Kulusevski cross palmed round the near post.
Malinovskyi came off the bench and made the difference, as he has done many times recently for La Dea.
His free kick from an improbably long distance still forced a tough save from Szczesny, but the move continued and Malinovskyi thumped it again from the edge of the box, a deflection off Alex Sandro wrong-footing the goalkeeper.See the latest Serie A predictions and betting tips with Eurotips.co.uk .
