Alex Sandro pushes away the ghosts, then the one-two of Dybala e Morata closes the game even before half-time: in the early evening of Champions League the Juventus from Max Allegri returns dominatrix and beats with a net 3 a 0 the Malmoe. 2,300 km away, at the Ceramics Stadium, theAtalanta I shine at its first in Europe and draw 2-2 against the Villareal. On an evening full of regrets for the men of Giampiero Gasperini, to the opening goal of Remo Freuler they respond Trigueros in the first half and then Danjuma to the 73rd. Eventually, however, it arrives Gosens and gives a precious tie.
Juventus in Champions format seems to be distant relative than that seen so far in the league. Just the beginning appears a little stammering, but then the action of two South Americans (those missed for example in Naples) loosens legs and head: Square cross, Alex Sandro with a header he scores 1-0. It is the 23rd: from that moment it becomes a downhill race for the bianconeri. There are other occasions, even if the two goals are all at the end of the first half. Dybala transforms the penalty earned by Morata, then the Spaniard himself uses a veil from the Argentine to sign the 3-0. In the second half Juve could also spread and take over Kean a goal is canceled for offside. Also keep the clean sheet, however, it is a good sign after the 5 goals scored in 3 Serie A matches. Of course, the opponent was more than that modesto. In the meantime, however, the bianconeri lead group H on equal points with Chelsea, who hardly beat him Zenit. Already from the next round we start to get serious. Juve, in any case, has unlocked.
The Champions format Atalanta, on the other hand, remains a journey on rollercoaster. Even the Nerazzurri had shown more than a few fragility in the league. Indeed, after Juve the team had appeared more in difficulty (just 4 points). Instead in Spain the Goddess is back there asphyxiating team who knows how to grind football and chances, but also to concede in the defensive phase. The start is perfect, Freuler’s precise right embellishes him with the goal of the advantage in the sixth minute. Gasperini’s team appears in control, then an error by De Roon gives a chance to the hosts who do not forgive with Trigueros. The recovery begins with the same script: Atalanta creates a lot, wastes and this time the crossbar denies the goal to Zapata. Then in the 73rd it is Freuler who loses a bloody ball: Danjuma on the fly marks the 2-1. The Nerazzurri react, start playing again and at the 83rd Gosens finds the net with one of his classic forays into the area on Ilicic’s cross. A minute later Coquelin, the Villareal stay at 10 and theAtalanta almost touches the bang. An away tie at the home of the winners of theEuropa League however, it remains a very precious result. Meanwhile, the Manchester United remained at 0, defeated by Young Boys which for now is leading the group.
